I’ve never liked a thin camera strap, or one that connected to a camera’s built-in eyelets, so I was justified but very wrong in not expecting much from Peak Design’s updated Leash.
The Leash is the first camera strap that’s not a mission to cinch and loosen. The built-in adjusters are a revelation in ease of use, and the low-profile Anchor Mount, which is included, negates my second concern above. The variety of configurations cover every preference and go far beyond what other straps can offer, and Peak Design’s famous anchors mean compatibility and easy switching up with the rest of their line.
Murdered out is the photographer default, but think twice, because the “ash” colorway is gorgeous, while still not drawing too much attention.
While the Leash is a welcome evolution of a well-supported category, Peak’s updated Cuff may as well be a new invention, because this is leagues beyond the garbage that kept you from putting your Wiimote through a TV screen.
There’s so little joy in the world right now- take this opportunity to enjoy small moments of brilliance, like the ability to wear your camera’s wrist strap as a bracelet (that actually looks good), when you seamlessly switch over to your Leash.
The Cuff can be used loose or taut, and will tighten up during a drop, possibly saving your camera in the process.
