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 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:
