Attach Your Camera Anywhere You Want
Peak Design has come up with a new alternative to the camera strap, the Capture Camera Clip System. It allows you to hang your camera off your belt or any strap.
The Capture System has two components: the clip and an Arca-style mounting plate. The System is made of aluminum and has a solid feel. The Arca-style plate is equipped with four hand strap loops. It has a rubber bottom; it won’t twist. The plate is best fixed by using the hexagon driver from the box, but you can also use the robust D-ring.
The Capture itself can be fixed on a belt, a backpack, a waist strap, or a messenger bag. To attach, you need to unscrew two clamping bolts that can withstand 60kg of force, and pivot the top layer to expose the bottom plate. Your belt or strap goes between the two. Tighten the clamping bolts firmly and you’re ready. The System is very secure, with separate spring and twist locks.
Strong it is, but comfortable? I thought the position next to my shoulder would be a good place to test the Capture, but I’m skinny. Hanging a heavy 3kg camera on a nylon shoulder strap without padding was asking for painful bruising; however, the Capture’s design invites experimentation. I found it worked great on the strap that came with my Lowepro camera bag. The camera still bounced around, but it bounced into the bag, not me, and releasing the camera from the Capture was a breeze.
