Capture POV Camera Clip
Capture® POV Camera Clip is the most versatile action camera mount ever created.

The Capture POV (Point of View) Camera Clip lets you mount GoPro®, Sony® ActionCam, Contour® and other action cameras directly on a backpack or strap. With an ultra-light, streamlined design, and quick release button with safety lock, this also works well with point-and-shoot cameras.

The aluminium and glass-reinforced nylon construction of the Capture POV Camera Clip makes it incredibly strong and durable.

Capture Clip in the jungle

Posted on Updated on

Wildlife photographer Roger Hooper is passionate about both wildlife and the environment and through his photography communicates the extraordinary aspects of our planet and the frailty of the world around us.

His work has also been published in these books: Art in the Wild and Dotted Plains – Spotted Game.

Roger works closely with the WWF – World Wildlife Fund – and has regular exhibitions entitled ‘Art in the Wild‘ at the gallery@Oxo, Oxo Tower Wharf, Southbank, London, SE1 9PH, in support of the WWF.

His next exhibition at the gallery@Oxo will be from Friday 9 August to 1 September 2013 – having been to see a couple of his exhibitions I highly recommend making a visit to see his fabulous images.

Roger takes his trusty Think Tank Photo Airport TakeOff to ferry his gear around on his travels.

Having both wheels and a backpack is essential for Roger to work across the varied terrain, from the smooth airport terminal floors to the plains of Africa and beyond.

However, when trekking into the jungles and across other tough terrain, the Shapeshifter provides him with a great lightweight solution for carrying his gear.

In addition to this the Peak Design Capture Clip & Plate has become an essential addition to Roger’s equipment.

Roger Hooper - Capture Camera System-1a

Clipped firmly onto his Shapshifter Peak Design Capture Clip & Plate leaves both hands free for trekking and has proved to be invaluable when climbing up to the tree tops, holding his 500mm lens on the Canon 1DX body securely in position and leaving both hands free to climb!
