Peak Design

Coming from Kickstarter the crowdfunding website to pretty much global domination in the camera accessory department and doing it with such high quality is quite a feat and in such little time. I believe they raised over $4.6 million on there last campaign which is incredible. 

Peak Design have made your camera easy to grab, to hold and easy to pack away. 

The Capture Pro is a belt or strap clip on device. Which is strong enough to hold your DSLR with a large lens. Clip it's to your bag and attach the base plate to the bottom of your camer and away you go. Fully locked in place but with a click your camera is in your hand and ready to go. Well as long as the battery isn't dead and you have a card or film in your camera.

They also and probably my favourite item is The Slide. A camera strap that is made to Peak Design's high quality standard and so easy to use. The simple latch part makes changing your camera strap length so easy your dog could do it. With the standard clip on attachments that all Peak Design stuff come with it is so easy to take the strap off and attach one of there other products like The Cuff, which would clip on and boom a wrist strap.

Last year they released  The Everyday Messenger on Kickstarter making it one of the biggest campaigns for a camera accessory. A camera bag that has pretty much all of Peak Design's already great ideas built in and then some amazing new ones. Now I do not have the bag, have never actually seen it in the flesh but from what I can tell it's something I need. I have 3 bags a rucksack that carries nearly everything, a large Think Tank and a medium Think Tank A slingshot 20. I use the medium Think Tank the most as I like things to be small but still have what I need. It's great, tho it doesn't hold my camera grip, my flash and my 70-200mm lens with my standard kit. The Everyday Messenger will do this, it will also change size when you have less to carry. A magnet locking system which is another great idea. This bag could move me from 3 to just 1. The slight problem is the price from £179 to £230 in shops. Should have got in on the Kickstarter from the beginning. Time to start saving.
