ok I'll wait for now, I can't wait to get hold of the anchors and be able to use this on Wednesday on my trip. I am sure this Leash is awsome.

The Peak Design Leash is highly recommended. I would rather suggest you purchase it with retailers where you can easily get access with customer service should you have any problems like in deliveries. Communication department is where they need a little bit of improvement.

Does this mean you got your anchors?

No I don't have the anchors only the leash. They ask for my address inspite the fact that I already stated the transaction number in my email to Peak Design. I should just have bought it at BnH or Adorama. I really like their leash. If I had the anchors I would have used this as a sling for my cam. I had the BlackRapid before which is overdue for replacement already.


Just an update, received an email just now they will be sending the anchors today. It won't be sent express so it may take time before it gets delivered.

if you're looking for a basic wrist strap, stick with the canon WS20

no need for overpriced cuffs that don't fit.

I'm still debating if I should get a Click Elite or an Op/Tech

I have the Click Elite, which sits in a box, unused now that I have the Cuff. I don't know about the Op/Tech, but the Click is just a massive PITA to get on/off, especially when using a dSLR w/ a larger lens. Plus, then you have this huge, foam bit hanging off the camera if you put it on a tripod, which is just waiting for something to snag it and tip the rig over.

Never had the OPTech one but I do own the Clik wrist strap. It has a nice sized wrist pad that is very comfortable and it loosens/tightens on the wrist with ease. That was the wrist strap I used until I switched over to the PD cuff.

Just did not like that big of a wrist strap always being attached thats why I switched.

I'de get the optech for simplicity. The wrist strap is really only served as a failsafe. Even a rope with lanyard will do the trick.

+1 on the Canon WS-20. Easy to put on, does not interfere with camera controls, comfortable, inexpensive. Only con is it doesn't have a way to adjust the tension around your wrist, but I don't mind this at all. I really don't see how the cuff would be any better than the simple Canon strap.

Finally got hold of the Peak Designs anchors. I am using the Leash on my camera now and I love it.
