I have looked over the Cinch 2 (new) and it's not as pretty as the medal one but I think the plastic one will be a great strap. I have watched the video several times pretty simple smooth operation I think it will be a winner DUH LOL. I think I will be happy with 8322 when it arrives

The sag issue has more to do with the grip material on top of the RC2 plate than anything else.

Most everyone uses high density neoprene with a checkered pattern. This stuff is readily available and super inexpensive, but it isn't actually as grippy as people think.

We were discussing this with our die cutting shop, and they (jokingly) said "Well, if you are rich, you could use 3M Bumpon." Intrigued, we got a sample to test and were blown away by it's performance. It is literally 7x the cost of neoprene, but the camera simply does not move on our plates. In testing, once you unscrew our plate to remove it, you often need to pry the plate off, that's how sticky the material is.

We'll ship with a carbon fiber injection molded pry bar, but you'll be able to get a forged titanium one as a $300 option in a few weeks.

:D

I knew I shouldn't have suggested this.

Of course I want the forged titanium version. D'oh. :(

You can go nutty at CountyComm with $50. Their stuff is very reasonably priced.

If you have a short, lightweight lens like a 50mm or 35mm, give the top left and right brackets a try. As the lens gets heavier and longer (think, L glass) and the body gets taller (think: 1D, Nikon D4 or anything with a grip), top mounting becomes cumbersome. For a lightweight, short lens, street shooting setup, top mounting works pretty well!

For 1D bodies, what about using the top left bracket and the bracket on the vertical grip as mounting points? Or would you still recommend using the plate attached to the bottom of the camera?

Our only hard-line recommendation is that you should only connect the Cinch to strap mount points that are, well, designed for straps. Don't go looping the webbing around the lens collar or the sharp elbow in an L-plate.

Beyond that, every photographer works with a different set of preferences, in different environments, with different gear. Our guidelines are really just a starting point; you should try attaching the Cinch in a couple of different ways and find out what works best for you, with your particular setup.

We made the Arca plate because we think *most* photographers, with the *most common* cameras will prefer bottom mounting. If you were to plot a bell curve of setup preferences, the base model Cinch is created to drive straight through the fat portion of preferences and make the most number of Cinch buyers happy, straight out of the box.

Get into the larger (1D, D4, Battery Grip) cameras, or more complex setups (L-Brackets, fitted Arca plates, flash brackets), and you'll be going out of the meat of the bell curve and into specialty territory. For those users, we have accessories like the Membrane Connector and PodMount to help adapt the system to niche needs. At the very least, the out-of-the-box Cinch will let you experiment with a naked camera and decide how you might best want to mount it, giving you more data points you might need to select the appropriate accessory.

It's only $6, but I'm not sure what the timeframe is like for shipping. I'm off to Asia in June and I'd love to have a nice strap to carry around my camera with. Plus I might be going down to Portland in May

We can probably arrange something. PM me.

In fact, if anyone in Portland wants to throw together a POTN get-together, I would be happy to show up and deliver any Cinch orders.
