Peak Design Kickstarter LIKE WOAH!

It's the most wonderful time of the year! And you know I'm not talking about Christmas just yet.

What the hell can I be talking about? WELP, I'LL TELL YA!

Peak Design just launched a Kickstarter campaign to introduce some totally revamped versions of our greatest hits: Capture, Slide, and Slide Lite. These products took Peak Design off the ground and now, they've updated them to new levels of performance and aesthetics.

Capture

The all-new Capture is the most secure, convenient, accessible way to carry your camera, period. Unlike a camera strap, Capture keeps your camera rigidly stable while hiking, biking, or moving around the studio. Unlike a camera bag, Capture keeps your camera instantly accessible with the click of a button. The Capture system includes 2 components: a metal clip that clamps to any backpack strap, belt, or bag, and a tripod-compatible plate that screws into the bottom of your camera. Your camera smoothly locks into the clip, where it is held rigidly and securely. Press the lockable quick-release button to remove.

The new 3rd gen Capture is smaller, lighter, and smoother than ever before. All machined/anodized aluminum construction. Metal quick-release button and locking mechanism and can hold well over 90 kg (200 lbs). Beautiful new ultra-smooth finish enhances durability, and ultra-low profile design increases comfort.

Slide

The most versatile pro camera strap in the world, the newly upgraded Slide can be worn as a sling, neck, or shoulder strap. Internally-padded nylon webbing has a smooth side, that glides over clothing in sling mode and a grippy side that prevents slipping in shoulder mode. Dual quick-adjusters provide instant access and easy reconfiguration. Unique Anchor Link system connects quickly and dual points of connection keep your camera more stable than traditional sling straps. Plus, Anchors work with any Peak Design or 3rd party tripod plate.

Updates include a revamped silicone grip, upgraded webbing, lower profile strap/hardware transitions, and crease-free internal padding. Anchor connectors have been updated to be smaller, faster, and more secure.

Slide Lite

The newly updated Slide Lite packs the unrivaled versatility of Slide into a smaller package, perfectly suited for mirrorless and light DSLR cameras. Wear Slide Lite as a sling, neck, or shoulder strap. Seatbelt-style nylon webbing has a smooth side, that glides over clothing in sling mode and a grippy side that prevents slipping in shoulder mode. Dual quick-adjusters provide instant access and easy reconfiguration. Unique Anchor Link system connects quickly and dual points of connection keep your camera more stable than traditional sling straps. Plus, Anchors work with any Peak Design or 3rd party tripod plate.

Updates include a revamped silicone grip, upgraded webbing, lower profile strap/hardware transitions, and non-slip quick-adjusters. Anchor connectors have been updated to be smaller, faster, and more secure.

Capture (Clip Only)

The new Capture clip-only SKU is finally here, thanks to feedback and suggestions from our customers. It’s exactly what it sounds like—a Capture clip without a camera plate—for those only in need of an additional clip. Perhaps you have multiple backpacks or bags that you’re looking to outfit with Capture clips. Or maybe you’re looking to give yourself the convenience of instantly switching between shoulder strap and belt carry. Note that this is not a stand-alone product—it requires a Peak Design plate or kit for carrying devices. If you’re new to Capture, you’ll want to get the clip+plate SKU

Pro Pad

Drastically increase your comfort and stability when using Capture with even the heaviest of camera/lens/grip combinations. Works on the belt or backpack strap. When on the belt, Pro Pad enables top-loading Capture entry. The all-new Pro Pad is significantly smaller and slimmer than the original version, yet built from a semi-rigid high-density EVA that provides more stability than ever. The pad is seamlessly laminated with our weatherproof charcoal nylon canvas, giving it a complete aesthetic makeover. And, in response to Pro Pad v1 customer feedback, we’ve made the new Pro Pad even easier to setup and use.

So the big deal is to get in while the getting's good! I'm practically obsessed with all of my Peak Design equipment, it just comes in so handy. The Kickstarter campaign will end on Friday, November 10th at 11:30pm PT, so bid while you can.
