Peak Design Capture Pro V3 – I’ve had this a year now, and it’s one of the most useful pieces of camera gear I’ve bought. Copyright © 2019 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.

This morning I was musing on the mess I’d left on my desk when the urge to take some pictures overtook me.

I’ve not had that many spontaneous urges to take a picture in the past few months, so I indulged this one. The subjects were pretty mundane, (this bit of gear, a Peak Design Capture Pro V3, and my desk), but I like the results. I especially like the wear that’s showing on the finish of the Capture Pro, it’s a testament to the amount of use this thing gets.

Exactly what is it? It’s a device that fixes on a belt or strap, and combined with a special base-plate on my camera it allows me to securely (and quickly) fix, my camera to my belt or a strap on my backpack. Removing the camera is just a matter of pushing a button and sliding it off of the clip.

It’s so much better than a camera strap. The camera doesn’t bounce and swing around all over the place like it does on a neck or wrist strap, and it leaves my hands free. It’s great for when I’m hiking and backpacking — the camera is close to hand, but not in the way. Likewise, when I’m working in a church, I can walk around with the camera ready for use, but it’s unobtrusive. That means I can keep the camera with me even up at the altar rail — try doing that unobtrusively with a camera dangling around your neck! In turn that allows me to be in the right place to grab pictures like this …
