After the great success of their Kickstarter campaign for their Everyday Messenger bag, Peak Design returns with 4 new bags in their Everyday range. The concept of the Peak Design Everyday Bag seems to be quite simple, really. Expandable, functional and tough camera bags that adapt to the needs and active lifestyles of shooters and muggles alike. Their original Everyday Messenger bag, with its custom made hardware and origami-inspired FlexFold dividers proved to be quite a hit with Kickstarter backers. Now, they are back with another crowdfunding campaign already funded almost 4 times over, and still with a month and a half to go. You can pre-order the Everyday Bags for the prices below. However, Peak Designed has reintroduced limited early bird prices, so you can even knock off another 10 bucks off the price while the early bird offer lasts. The Peak Design campaigns have been very well received by backers on Kickstarter. They certainly have earned the trust of their consumers, offer a lifetime warranty on their products, and are now the most funded active campaign on Kickstarter, so they may be worth a look! Do you own any other Peak Design products? What do you think of them? Let us know in the comments below.Read more
I know, it looks like a bulky version of that elegant Jedi weapon—the lightsabre—but it is a quite genius piece of gear. Everybody who works as a one man band knows the unpleasant situation of having to change a lens while holding another one and the camera body, too. That’s where the CaptureLens comes into its own! Peak Design, a well-known manufacturer of camera accessories—some of them successfully funded via kickstarter—has just released a very useful piece of equipment: the CaptureLens. Announced in summer 2015, it’s now ready for delivery. The idea is to have a lens mount which is capable of having two lenses attached to it at the same time handy—one on the top, one on the bottom. If you want to change lenses, use both of your hands to detach the lens from your camera body, as per usual. Then, attach the lens to one side of the Capture Lens Clip and rotate the whole thing. The now top faced lens is ready to detach with easy one hand operation, and you can attach it to your camera body. Job done! The set consists of two pieces, the CaptureLens and the Lens Kit, which is available for various lens mounts, such as Canon EF, Nikon F or Sony E/EF mount. The CaptureLens device is compatible with the existing clip system by Peak Design, so you can switch back and forth between a broad range of mounting options. The clip part can be attached to any strap up to 3’’ (7 cm), and it is compatible with other Peak Design clips such as the Capture Camera Clip system. Another neat feature is the rotating 4-way locking swivel which ensures a freely rotating device as well as four lock positions for securing your unused lens. Check out the video below. It becomes very simple to understand how it works when watching it in action. Also, make sure to check their product page for more info. I think it’s an ingenious piece of gear—though it might look a little weird on your belt. What is your opinion of such a device?Read more
