I found this on a website that shows some good videos here and there.

I then stumbled on this: http://www.peakdesignltd.com/

What do you guys think?
Would you buy it, if it's around 50 USD ?

Unfortunatly this guy hasn't started production yet, since he needs preorders before he can get starting, but i hope he has success.

Edit:

The Product is still in funding but already very popular and i have just pledged 120$ into it and hooping to recieve it sometime.

I like the look of them but wouldn't buy one. I wouldn't trust it to hold my camera. I am sure it works but wouldn't feel safe using it :D

I still prefer a cross-chest shoulder strap as I use bigger lenses but even for smaller lenses I think I would stick with the strap I mentioned above. For me the strap secures your camera more securely and I more comfortably as well imo. Along with the fact you dont have to mess with a quick-release button which I'm sure I would have issues with when I am in a rush or get excited both of which happen quite often.

Reminds me of the Spider Holster system, at least being a variation of that theme.

I was originally looking at these as ways to hold 2nd or more cameras at once. Currently I've settled on a main on neck strap and 2nd in an open top shoulder bag. Does the job.

In another video he demonstrated that the capture can hold 105 pounds.

Hmm, yeah i think i might get a strap like that too. I've just been looking around on what to get and wasn't sure yet. This has kinda convinced me though.

I really like this idea - and I would think its worth 50 usd for sure. Other than the black widow mentioned above, is there anything else out there like this? I really like it and I don't have patience to wait for it to be released :-)

There is a new version of this clip coming out soon - again a kick starter project. In a moment of rashness after viewing the videos I have pledged for the pro version. Anyone on this forum used this system yet - is this going to be something new for the gadget graveyard!
