The magnetic clips that you install onto your rucksack straps are simple to use, taking only seconds to set up - and don't worry, the clips work via elastic cords to keep in place meaning there's no damage caused to the rucksack! The magnetic clasps attached to the SNAPSNAP strap itself are as equally simple to use, and they too are adjustable with a simple rotating lock. Once installed the strap holds the weight of the equipment with ease and the magnetic clips hold tight, even with the longest lenses and battery packs attached!
Possibly the best part of this new strap system is how quickly you are able to start shooting at just a moments notice - perfect for capturing the more unexpected moments! The magnetic clasps will instantly come free when the camera is lifted up to take a photo; meaning that the SNAPSNAP strap is just as fast as a regular strap but with none of the discomfort.
Anyone that has spent time wandering with a camera round their neck will be used to the familiar bounce back and forth that comes with the motion of walking, which can be detrimental to the cameras health as it knocks against you and any nearby objects! I have found that when using the SNAPSNAP strap this has also been greatly reduced, which also adds to the comfort and puts me more at ease when moving around with the camera.
The strap has more than met my expectations and I'm excited to be collaborating with Carsten and his team on this exciting new product.
With a few tweaks planned for the final design before launching SNAPSNAP on Kickstarter this October, I am looking forward to seeing this ingenious new strap system succeed and also finding out what the SNAPSNAP team has planned next!
