When we first reported on the CamCuff, it was still just a Kickstarter. After receiving full funding, the company reached out to us about a review unit. As a refresher, the CamCuff is a wrist strap put out by Wanderlust–and they’re targeting it at the fashionable crowd. This is evident in the black leather and the studs that seem to match lots of the punk rock attitude and outfits currently out there.
We’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now, and we’re genuinely impressed with the build quality and the comfort level that the CamCuff gives. And even though I’m a personal sucker for beautiful and fashionable straps, we have to say that this one looks perfect for the person looking to join a biker gang or maybe even about to walk into a BDSM club.
There’s a new KickStarter rearing its fashionably stud covered head for photograpers, and its called the CamCuff. It’s essentially two parts: a snazzy new leather cuff that can match your 1968 Black Leather Bomber Jacket that you managed to get out of Beacon’s Closet, and a strap that attaches to your camera. This was designed for people who prefer wrist straps and don’t like having to wrap their camera strap around this wrist a couple of times over and over again (which has been a preferred method for me until I started playing with more wrist straps.) But when not in use, it can double as a fashionable accessory for a night out or in case you want to end up on the Sartorialist.
We’re not sure if this is the same Wanderlust that has developed the pinwide, but if they are then they’re already very experienced in the photo world.
Head on over to the Kickstarter page and check out the video of them dropping weights and stress testing this thing.
