The Capture Camera Clip System is a new way for active photographers to carry their camera - by rigidly clipping it to any strap or belt on your existing gear. The product consists of a compact, ultralight aluminum "chassis" that securely clamps down onto your belt, backpack strap, messenger bag strap, climbing harness, life vest, or other garments you already own. A small aluminum "camera connection plate" screws into the tripod mount on your camera. The plate allows your camera to slide and lock into the chassis, letting you securely carry your bulky SLR camera with ease. Furthermore, Capture keeps your camera readily accessible with it's "quick release lock." With the press of a button, you can slide your camera out of the chassis, snap a photo, and click it back into place. Whether you're hiking, biking, skiing, climbing mountains, or just snapping pictures at a family gathering, the versatility of Capture will revolutionize the way you transport and handle your camera.

Only two cons:
1) the strap is really stuffed into the clamp. The clamp popped off the strap when I set the pack down. Luckily the camera only fell a few inches and landed on grass. Part of the problem was the big strap. I never checked the tightness of the screws, now I do, and have not had any problems.
2) at first it as difficult to get the camera to seat in the mount. I was having problems lining it up. After a few days of heavy use I got the hang of how to align it to clip into the mount.
Other than those things. It is a great way to carry a camera for quick access...
I'm not a world cup down hill rider, but I do ride aggressively. I jump things, bunny hop stuff, and generally go pretty fast. I ride a full suspension bike, and a rigid single speed mountain bike, and the camera stays still, right where I can reach it, all the time. It doesn't smack me in the face, or beat on my chest. In fact, I don't even know it's there if I'm not thinking about it.
The DSLR I carry is the original Rebel XT, so it's got some age on it. Pretty much anything Canon currently makes would be an upgrade, so it's not a big deal to me if it breaks. Which is something to take into account, because the camera IS exposed to the environment while I'm riding, crossing streams it can get splashed, on dry trails it can get dusty, and inevitably, I'll drip sweat on it. If you can't live with the idea that your camera will be exposed to the elements where ever you are, whatever you're doing, you might want something different.
If you want your camera accessible instantly, secured and out of the way for pretty much any activity I can think of, and don't mind the above stuff, this is a great, well built, quality device that you can have confidence in.
My only problem is not the fault of the manufacturer. I carry two dSLR cameras, one stays in the sling bag, the other on the Capture. However, I wanted a second mounting plate for the other body.
Read the fine print, "Arca-Swiss Classic" not "Arca-Swiss Type". I don't know what the difference is, but the "Acra-Swiss Type" plates I've bought are close but will NOT fit. Searching Amazon for Arca Swiss Classic returns only this item and tripod heads made by Arca Swiss, no plates.
This of course is frustrating, especially since the supplied plate seems to have grown legs thus rendering my Capture useless.
Note: Peak Design's website offers replacement parts including three different replacement plates that not only fit this device and "Arca-Swiss Type" devices, but Manfrotto and others.
For a long time I've been looking for a suitable solution to stow the camera on long walks. There are a few solutions out there but none would totally fit my needs. This Peak Design Capture fits very well.
1. Its base plate screws into the tripod screw of the camera. The base plate has another hole so you can mount another plate on top if need be. However, for my case I don't need to because the base plate is arca-swiss compatible so I can mount it onto my tripod head which uses arca swiss type plates.
2. The clip grips the backpack strap or your belt very tightly and securely.
3. The mating betwen the camera and the clip is very positive. It takes some getting used to but with practice, one can clip/unclip the camera onto/off the clip easily and quickly.
4. Once mounted, the base plate is securely latched and can only be released by holding in the release lever. For long term transport, there's another knob you can screw in to securely lock it. So that's dual redundancy from accidental release.
Everything is made out of aluminum except for the release lever which appears to be plastic which I find curious...why plastic for this one?
I'm very paranoid when it comes to accidentally dropping my camera. This set up offers dual redundancy so I'm happy. To make it even more insanely safer, I retain the neck strap that comes with the camera,that goes around my neck. That's my third level of safety. In addition, I'm using an Optech quick release strap as the fourth level of safety. Happily they all work together without much interference. Maybe I'll make a video to show you.
I tested the system with my new 5D Mark 3 and EF 400mm f/5.6L lens, mounted on the left strap of my Canon camera bag. The camera/lens combo weighs around 6 lbs. It took me a while to click the camera into the clip but after about 5 tries, it gets easy. With the camera mounted it was a pleasure walking around hands free finally. You can barely feel the weight. Release was quick and easy using both hands (left hand holding the lens, right hand releases the lever). I had no trouble taking pictures of birds flying by. I walked for about 2 miles with this on...the best two miles I've had while with the camera/lens combo. I released and used the camera about 6 times with only one time I couldn't get it out fast enough. This was done without engaging the secondary safety knob but including my releasing the Optech buckle. With practice, I don't think it will be a problem at all.
I tried wearing this on my belt which was an ordinary half inch belt. I found it not sturdy enough. It is solid on my 1 inch wide leather cowboy belt though.
I highly recommend this product.
