As any photographer that's been around the block before will attest, few things are as irritating as equipment getting in the way of a shot, whether it's restrictive straps or just poorly designed attachment points that take too much time to adjust. San Francisco's Peak Design aims to tackle the issue with their soon-to-be-shipped Kickstarter-funded products. Touting two straps with a modular connecting system, Peak Designs wants to make the gear carrying your camera an afterthought by making adjusting quicker than ever and removing or swapping straps as easy as pushing a button.
The Slide camera strap can be worn as a neck, sling or shoulder strap with a slick side for ease of movement, and a grippy side to ensure a steady shot when desired. The thick, seatbelt-style webbed nylon strap is sturdy enough to hold even the heaviest set-ups and comfortable at the same time, thanks to hidden interior padding. The Clutch strap is an upgraded hand strap, with a carabiner style quick-adjusting strap. Both feature the brand's signature Anchor Links, which can be used with most any camera synch, allowing the user the ability to detach straps at a moments notice—similar to those used by TannerGoods on their SLR camera strap.
