New Distributor for Peak Design

Posted on Updated on

Snapperstuff is excited to announce that we are the NEW DISTRIBUTOR for PEAK DESIGN®.

Who are Peak Design®?

The mission of Peak Design is to enable photographers and outdoor/adventure enthusiasts to better capture the beautiful world around them. We will do this by designing and building innovative, thoughtfully composed, ultra-durable products that are easy to use and versatile. Right now our aim is to help people better transport and physically manage their cameras, but as time goes on we will continue to tackle other ubiquitous pain points that photographers and outdoorsy people face. We believe that wherever you go and whatever physical activity you do, your camera should be right there with you.

What’s their product range?

Peak Design has developed the Capture® Camera Clip System – which they launched through Kickstarter (and they are the 2nd most funded project in Kickstarter’s history!).

WHAT IS CAPTURE®?

The Capture® Camera Clip System rigidly holds your camera to any strap or belt, keeping it secure and accessible during any physical activity. Take your DSLR Camera everywhere. Capture® is an aluminum clip that will forever change the way you shoot. It lets you carry your DSLR camera, with lens attached, directly on any backpack strap or belt. This eliminates the need for a neck strap, sling, holster or bulky camera bag. Capture® holds your camera rigidly, allowing you to be physically active without your camera swinging and swaying.
