Well, we missed this kickstarter project for the “Capture” camera attachment system that turned out to be a huge success like the CineSkates system we showed you last week – this one was a humongous success – just look at the numbers below! Plus, they've gotten coverage on Gizmodo, and more.

  1. Nice one. I like the versatility. If I’m already wearing a backpack I can just clip the camera to the shoulder strap. Also convincing: the ability to change lenses with two hands if the clip is up front on your belt.
    I’ll probably preorder one.

  2. Very cool! I can see this very useful for a photo journalist or any still photog. However, purely from a video DSLR application, this wouldn’t work because of it’s proprietary baseplate.

    1. I agree : I already own several identical quick release plates, and this would not allow me to use them… Maybe in a next release ?

  3. Echoing the above comment – yet another quick release plate. I’m already married to two quick release systems I don’t need another. Also…. the demo neglected to show just how impractical it is to have a camera hanging from a backpack strap. The second camera in a small, over-the-shoulder, messenger-style bag (Lowpro makes one) works best for me.

  4. Agreeed.. If they could make one that would use other manufactures base plates like manfroto or that would make it work for me. Seems like this is more for photo guys than video guys.

  5. I love mine. Downside is the baseplate, you can use the Capture plate with RRS, Arca-Swiss, Wimberley and several other companies QR systems, but you cant use their plates with the capture.

    So I bought a basic QR mount w/ 1/4 holes on the bottom to mount to my manfrotto plate. Once you tighten it once you never touch it again and it’s really solid. RRS plates are killer. Great if you do run-n-gun type gigs like me, I shoot primes and switch cameras instead of lenses, so I pop a camera off my hip and onto my rig and vice-versa, quick and easy to do 1-handed. Night and day from dropping everything to switch cameras.

  6. This is one of good product idea which is useful and can benefit. Not like lock circle cap.
