I ordered the Cinch camera strap the morning that I got the email on December 26th, 2011. I’ve wanted a Luma Labs sling ever since they first came out.
Thoughts after using it over the last 4 months:
- Easy to use
The one thing that I don’t like:
No swivel. While simple and stable are great, there are times when I need to use my tripod and I have to take it off. However, putting it back on again requires me to undo the buckle strap from the tripod mount, attach the mount back to the camera and re-thread the strap, otherwise I have a lot of twists in the strap. A swivel or quick release would solve the issue.
It’s not a big deal. It functions beautifully 95% of the time.
It strikes me that a swivel or quick release was probably in the works had not Black Rapid been issued their patent.
Definite fan of it and I’ve already convinced two others to purchase it.
