Neck-strap. No. Hand-strap. No. What else?

I e-mailed PD through the link above. I linked them to this thread and sent them all the photos. I hope this helps. Thanks again, guys.

The e-mail in the link above comes back as non-deliverable. Not sure what that means.

Just got a "We got your message." reply from PD's Contact Us page. Should hear from them later today.

I like DIY stuff so I've made my own inspired by an old thread here at POTN. But I do like PD's quick release system.

This is how it's attached to the battery grip:

Hahahaha....if you haven't, already, you definitely need to send that anecdote to the PD folks :D

Lol, yeah i think they asked me for a photo at one point, its not exactly as fancy as it sounds...

IMAGE: http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2013/181/6/f/dscf8317_s_by_casephoto-d6bfn9l.jpg

I use about 3 cameras regularly, I have 2 or 3 leashes that i use for different cameras in different ways, all the parts get used alot, including just the anchors with the little round plastic, i put a carbine through that for my x100.

If you're curious this is what i made for myself long before PD designed a proper one:

IMAGE: http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/125/7/4/diy_belt_by_saintcase-d3fnjjc.jpg

I don't personally like handstraps, if i want to hold the camera, i'm already holding it. And if i don't want to hold the camera, then i don't want to hold it! Thats why a safety leash coupled with a quick release on my belt or backpack strap, or whatever works much better for me than a wriststrap or a neckstrap. Although its borderline for any long lenses or gripped bodies.

Please let us know what they say. Like I said, if this is the new design of it I can not suggest it to anyone else and I will not be buying another as planned! (I'm really hopping they didn't redesign it to be like that!!!)

I just measured my cuff, received a few days ago. It's the same size as Snyderemark's, about an inch longer than the OP's. Looks like you got a short one, OP.


Cheers, Damien

Don't tell my wife, please!

I replied to PD's "got your message" e-mail. Same address as the link above. It went through this time. I'm sure they'll make this right.

What follows is the e-mail reply that I got from Peak Design's CS rep:

Hi Tom,

Thank you for your support and feedback. Regarding the issue with Cuff being too small/tight, it's something we've heard from a number of customers. We've also had folks tell us the exact opposite - that Cuff is too loose for them. Ultimately it's tough to accommodate the wide range of wrist sizes with a single one-size-fits-all product.

Recently we made a tweak to the Cuff design that made it a little smaller around the wrist. Unfortunately we made it a little too small to work for everybody. In response we have once again tweaked the Cuff design, and we expect a new batch of Cuffs to arrive in the near future that are slightly larger than the unit you received.

If you like, we can place you on a list to receive a new Cuff free of charge once the new models are available. We can't promise when that will be, but until then you can keep your current unit and you won't even have to mail it back to us when we send the new one. How does that sound?

As for the review you posted, we would very much appreciate you "re-reviewing" the Cuff again when you receive the new one that is to speck.

Thanks again for supporting Peak Design, and as always happy shooting!

Jen

You know...I LOVE their products; but the snippet above is why most companies have different sizes available when such a situation arises. I wonder why they wouldn't just offer a S/M/L sort of thing.

Or why not make it with a locking adjustable thing-a-ma-bob?

Errggggg......I have, what I consider to be fairly small wrists for a man. I do however love the length of, what I shall now call "the original cuff". Large enough to easily fit a hand through, long enough to use with a grip, and (may favorite reason) long enough to double over and wear as a bracelet when not being used. I know that last one might seems weird but when the camera is clipped into my capture clip its nice not having the wrist strap swigging around....and thats the reason I switched from the Clik Elite wrist strap to the PD Cuff.

Here's hoping that "a new batch of Cuffs to arrive in the near future that are slightly larger than the unit you received" really means 'we went back to the original cuff's dimensions!'
