So what you are saying is that we should have made the Cinch lime green, and silk screened "LUMA LABS: EXPENSIVE STRAPS FOR EXPENSIVE ASS CAMERAS" on the outside of the shoulder pad?

:D

I'd have put "Pinch My Cinch" in sassy-pink :p

Just got mine today. Put my v1 on my 30D with the new Arca plate and used my custom Markins plate with the v2. Looks and feels just like the v1 Cinch. As much as I like the machined aluminum buckles of the original Cinch, I much prefer the black composite hardware of the v2.

Here are the obligatory pics.

Looks great, Alex!

Wore my Cinch 2 with my 7D and 70-200 F4 for almost 3 hours on Sunday hiking. Felt great and ergonomically sound... Admittedly the combo isnt particularly heavy but I could barely feel the weight and it stuck close to my body and didn't sway around

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Yeah. I can't wait. Leaving to Boston on Friday to visit friends and then go on a New England cruise for a week through Maine, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Quebec. I'll put the Cinch 2 to good use.

I like the enthusiasm! Yes!! It's a Markins plate!!! I removed my RRS L-plate that was attached to my vertical grip. I just found it too heavy. I may sell it since I'm just not using it. The Markins plate is so thin, small and lightweight that it makes a huge difference when carrying the camera around all day. The added bonus is that it has a loop for the Cinch strap.

Mine delivers today. The same plate. I have a q3 ball and I, waiting on the plate and hand strap. Cheers.

My initial observations of the Cinch 2:

- Build quality is superb, just like the Cinch 1. It just feels like a well-made product.

- I like the narrower webbing. The webbing on the Cinch 1 was often too bulky for stuffing inside a camera bag. It also looked like overkill for a compact dslr. Maybe looked better with a 1D series.

- I like the composite Arca Swiss plate. Although I am using a Markins plate specifically designed for my 5D3, I used the Luma composite Arca Swiss plate on my 30D and it works great. The material is top-notch and the rubber padding really makes a secure bond with the camera. Absolutely no wiggle even with a good amount of pressure applied.

- I love the new composite sliders. While the brushed aluminum of the Cinch 1 is very sexy, I prefer the black composite hardware on the Cinch 2. I love that there are two - one on each side. There is no longer a front and rear - both sides are the same.

- I wish they had included strap retainer loops. I had some spare ones from another strap and used those, but the strap that attaches to the camera often has some slack and the loops are useful in keeping the ends together.

- While I prefer they had made the rings that attach the shoulder pad to the straps in a composite material as well, it seems the metal loops allow the strap to slide more smootly when adjusting. Maybe Luma can work on a design made from composite material that would still allow for smooth strap adjustment.

- I am indifferent about the sticky areas on the shoulder pad. I thought the old pattern was as effective as the new pattern, just looks different. I don't have a problem with either.

- The Cinch 2 feels lighter and more manageable. The Cinch 1 sometimes felt like too much strap and I found myself leaving it at home when on vacation or just a quick run around town. I think it has to do with the narrower webbing and symmetrical design of the new strap.

Overall, I think Luma hit a home run with the new strap. The adjustability of the strap allows you to use it as a traditional neck strap or a sling strap. The new Luma composite Arca Swiss plate allows you to connect the strap to a number of different points on the camera in a variety of configurations that make it more comfortable for your needs. Good job Luma.
