I wear mine tight enough so it just sits on top of my hip.... sort of nestled in the hollow of my back. I can bend over without it swinging around. We live in Florida so I wear mostly casual polo shirts when I'm out and about, but that wouldn't be much different than a T shirt.

Awesome. Thanks for the feedback. I think I'll add this to my list :cool:

How easy is it to use the Cinch 2 with a slingbag or backpack of some sort? Or are there better ways to carry extras (another lens, battery, memory cards, etc.) with the Cinch 2?

Thanks,

Mike

No idea. I just leave all that stuff in the hotel or camp. :)

They are now offering a Cinch Short Webbing Kit but still no aluminum slider or pull tab. I think I should just give up and order.

i don't think they will release the aluminium slider anymore as they mentioned it took too long to make the slider.

The thing holding up the aluminum slide is that we're trying to figure out demand.

Those are machined parts, and machine shop demand has risen sharply as the economy picked up. We launched the original Cinch with CNC machined parts back when shops around here were work hungry. Now that they are not, prices have gone up, 6061 aluminum prices are up 25% and lead times have increased.

We never thought demand for the machined parts would be very high, but were going to do a run of about 50 or so. With machine shop time getting so expensive though, those 50 were going to cost us through the nose. The fact is, we were never going to make much profit from making this run of aluminum bits, but we also aren't a position where we can afford to make 200 sets of expensive aluminum parts, sell 30 of them and be sitting on 170 unused, beautifully machined Luma pull tabs.

Right now, we have two more projects that use our 3/4" webbing with slide adjusters. Our small camera strap is mostly developed but we are hunting for the right material for it (which is proving to be a challenge). We also figured out way to not infringe on one company's patent while significantly improving the utility of a produce we once made and had to regrettably pull from the market. Given that both those projects could benefit from having machined slide adjusters with the pull tab, it puts the prospect of making that part as an accessory back on the table.

Hi last activity here at POTN was 1 week ago. Other than that I am clueless.

I just found a thread here saying Carry Speed has gone out of business because of Black Rapid.

I sure hope Luma Labs is still doing OK. Their website is still up at least.

We don't hear as much from Greg as we used to hear.

I recently placed an order for a short strap and received it promptly, so I think they are doing fine.

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.

I just noticed that the end of my Luma Mk I has been slipping :shock:

There were about 2mm left before the strap would have come undone completely from the little plastic slider thing and that would have been quite bad.

I'll be keeping an eye on it in the future to see if it happens again.

2mm is hardly anything at all, a little more than 1/16 of an inch. Is this the part of the strap directly connecting to your camera? I also have MK I version and mine has never slipped. I have 50mm + at this area (2 inches +)

Yes, thats why I posted this. Just 2mm and my camera could have been a casualty. Not blaming Luma or anything, maybe it was just a combination of things, but just a warning to check your strap from time to time.
And yes, that is the part directly connecting to my camera. I originally had about 1.5 inches there.
