Unlike a camera strap, Capture keeps your camera rigidly stable while hiking, biking or moving around the studio. Unlike a camera bag, Capture keeps your camera instantly accessible with the click of a button.

Your camera locks into the clip, where it is held rigidly and securely – simply press the lockable quick-release button to remove. Capture holds well over 90kg, making it strong enough for the heaviest of pro camera/lens combinations. This third version of Capture (Peak Design product number CP-BK-3, replacing the previous version CCC-2.0S) has been updated and improved. Capture v3 is way smaller and lighter than v2: 20% narrower, 20% lower profile, 30% lighter. It has an all-metal build with ultra-smooth machined/anodized finish for increased durability, and comfy ergonomic design. Capture attaches to any strap or belt up to 6.4cm wide and 2.2cm thick. Capture v3 is now also available in Silver as well as Black. By popular request a second version of Capture with Clip Only (no camera plate) will soon be available too. Ideal for those only in need of an additional clip: perhaps you have multiple backpacks or bags that you’re looking to outfit with Capture clips, or maybe you’re looking to give yourself the convenience of instantly switching between shoulder strap and belt carry. Capture Clip Only will also come in both Black and Silver. (February 2018)
