Hrm......... Could it be all this time and I never knew? Wouldn't be the first time that I was completely oblivious...

Thanks for the heads up...

Yes. Works with my Markins lever clamp and all my screw clamps.

Our plate is made of the same carbon-ceramic Lumidium that our Cinch sliders are made of and its dovetail is sized to the unofficial standard for Acra-compatible plates. Its overall dimensions are 2.39in (6.07cm) by 1.54in (3.91cm) and it is 0.39in (1cm) thick. We validated our design by testing with clamps from a variety of makers, including Really Right Stuff, Acratech, and Kirk. In addition, our plate can be fitted with two small stop screws (supplied) for clamps that support them.

So Greg,
would this new Luma-Sling be way overkill for a lightweight Fuji x100s? I have decided I want a sling for fast up/down action. I refuse to buy a Black Rapid, although i am currently using my old BR...

What I am having trouble visualizing with the pics you posted of the hardware is its size because Im not familiar with the body you have it mounted to in the pics above.

Haven't been on this board in quite awhile but came in to check in with the Luma thread to see any product updates. I was not disappointed! Also curious about the new Loop's use in m4/3 cameras.

The marketing side of me wants to say "Yes, the Loop 3 is the perfect strap for smaller cameras!"

The honest answer is that *I* feel it's a bit overkill on my Fuji X100s. Most of our beta testers disagree and are running Loop 3s on their Sony FF compacts and Fuji X cameras and loving it.

My view is that the small cameras are really intimate and a lot of strappage subtracts from this. In fact, I just ordered a couple of hides from Horween this morning with the intention of making the Loop out of very simple half inch leather strips, cut to the user's size and with relatively limited adjustment to keep things as stripped down and minimalist as possible for my X100s. If it works, we'll make it the Mini Loop or some other such permutation.

And an FYI: The Loop 3 is mostly ready to go and is in production. We had a fascinating (when not maddening) issue where the bar-stock we made the thumb screws out of had some funky material defect inside of it. We machined a few hundred of them and they looked perfect - until these bizarre swirl marks showed up in anodizing. Nobody in our supply chain - machine shop, anodizer or the material supplier (ThissenKrup) has seen 6061-T6 do this funky thing before, so we're figuring it out now.

Anyone use a RRS B2-FABN clamp with a cinch for quick release? It looks like it would work.

That's what I use and I love it. I also put one on my wife's SL1. With the 15-85 lens, her camera is heavy enough to make good use of the Cinch 2.

The clamp holds well, doesn't loosen up but come off easily for use on my tripod or monopod. For me, it's the perfect solution. I've tried a variety of other options using the Optech utility straps but I prefer the RRS B2-FABN because there are no little things hanging off the camera. Is it expensive? Yeah, but you only spend the money once and use it for a lifetime.

Good to hear. I actually have two of those clamps being delivered.;) Thanks for your feedback.

Just bought a cinch basic. The reason I didn't get a membrane or plate is because my Photoclam plate already have 2 strap holes on each side. I hope the cinch strap will fit in these 2 strap holes. Can't wait to try it on!
