Good news: Peak Design has released new camera gear. Even better news: You can order it in our shop. The best new: You’re in for a chance to win it.
When Peter Dering returned from a trip around the world in 2010, he was so fed up with impractical camera straps that he decided to quit his job and come up with his very own camera carrying system. His idea, launched as a Kickstarter campaign, turned out to be a huge success. Today, Peak Design has a team of 30 full-time employees. Still financed by crowdfunding, the company is protected from unrealistic investor expectations and free to develop at its own pace.
Now, Peak Design has launched a new line of products. The new arrivals are available on digitec and are up for grabs in our competition (see below).
Capture clips and plates
The metal capture clips can be connected to any backpack strap, belt or bag to keep your camera stable while you’re carrying it. You can attach Captures temporarily and remove them quickly or connect them permanently.
The Plate is the counterpart to the clips; the part the clip is screwed to. It’s attached to the camera via the tripod thread. The new Plate is much flatter and won’t get into your way when you’re not using it. The new clips are much smaller, too, but are still made of metal, making them very robust. You can buy them separately, as the new clips are compatible with the old Plates.
The new camera straps are smoother, lighter and more comfortable. The model «Slide» works with even heavy pro cameras (with telephoto lens for instance) while the «SlideLITE» is designed to carry lighter mirrorless system cameras. Both can be worn as a sling, neck or shoulder strap. If you have a large telephoto lens, you can carry it facing downwards. This is much more convenient than carrying it with the lens facing away from you.
Anchors are at the core of the Peak Design system. Anchor Links are connectors that attach or detach your camera with just one click – without the usual tiresome threading and unthreading of carrying straps. Anchors links are part of the Peak Design camera straps, but can also be bought separately to use with your current camera strap.
The new Anchors have thinner cords and fit into even the smallest eyelets.
Peak Design has also launched its smallest and lightest bag yet. It may be compact, but it fits a mirrorless camera, a small single-lens reflex camera or even a drone. It’s also equipped with a padded tablet sleeve for tablets up to 11". Check out the video to get a good impression of the new Sling 5L.
Accessories and individual parts
What’s great about the Peak Design system is that all parts can be bought separately.
Habe diverse Artikel von Peak Design zu Hause und alle sind der Hammer. Den Gurthalter habe ich, muss ich zu meiner Schande zugeben, noch nicht benutzt. Kommt aber sicher noch. Werde für meine 40ig jährige Minolta dann noch einen Gurt und eine Tasche kaufen, sobald diese wieder einsatzbereit ist.
