I have V2 and never owned V1 so I guess I don't know what I'm missing but I have no complaints with V2. It's very comfortable and functions perfectly. I am very pleased as this rig is a giant step ahead of the Optech rig I was using.

Saw the uni-loop but not sure about hanging the strap from a string. I'm sure its fine.

The other one from optech looks great but more for smaller and lighter cameras. Its intended for cameras with small strap loops.

I use these alot.

I hang my cameras off of it when it's attached to my backpack shoulder strap on hikes.

It's parachute cord, so it's built to last. I've had it hang a 1d body with the 24-70 brick. Works perfectly fine for the past 4 years.
Lately I've been hanging a long zoom lens on tripod collar to my camera belt.. via a black rapid adapter. Makes swapping very easy when I need to catch more distance.

Just got my Luma v2 and I must thank Greg for the help. Love what I see so far.

Got my Cinch 2 and will have a full review of it. Anyone thought of using op/techs reporter/backpack connectors as a quick disconnect?

As far as quick disconnect, I use this:

I think Greg had a video demonstration earlier in this thread where he showed that the type of gate clip you show is highly unreliable and prone to failure. I wouldn't trust anything other than the kind of gate clip with threaded locking mechanism that Greg ships out with the Cinch.

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.

Oh, the video that cost us $7000... =)

We had these neat gate clips designed. We had them tested in 3D printed materials. During that testing, we couldn't really wang on them, since 3D printed plastic is relatively delicate stuff, but we did all the strength testing in finite element analysis (those little guys do hold about 400lb; they are why we invented our Lumidium material). So we tested everything which way as much as we could, optimized the design and signed off on a mold...

Get the real-deal parts, all excited! Fit gates to them and start sewing them into straps. Boom. Instant failure.

Our gate's super swoopy surface geometry (geometry I was super proud of pulling off in SolidWorks), happened to exacerbate the problem shown in the video. Once we saw it, we went into "Oh, ****!" mode and started looking at other gate clips, and quickly realized they ALL had the same failure mode.

It was an expensive lesson, but one I would have rather learned the way we did than one we would have learned when someone called us up by dropping a Leica or something.

Thanks Greg for the explanation. Off to test my gate hook.

The op tech adapt its seem to help not make this a problem.

That is the one thing I did like about the BR Strap, the gate hook had a screw barrel to lock the hook closed and make it very secure.

Greg, any chance you could add a locking feature to your (now retired) gate hook and have something that you can trust?

Posted my review on the Cinch 2 - http://www.1kindphotog​raphy.com …cinch-2-camera-strap.html (external link)

Definitely a comfy strap and blends in with my suit when I'm taking photographs at an event. It's light in weight and I have no issues placing this into my camera bag unlike some others because its too stiff or too bulky.

I also have pictures/review of the plate, podmount and membrane connector.

I FINALLY got a Cinch mk1 and I LOVE it! I've had the Cinch 2 since it was released. I pre-ordered it and was probably among the first to receive it. It's great and all...

But that pull tab and shiny metal on the Cinch mk1...yum!

I've still been meaning to order the shorter straps for my Cinch 2.
