Overall, I’m simple. I am not a fan of the nice, yet terribly expensive wrist straps we have reviewed here. I like my photography accessories to work while not being expensive and prefer to invest more money into my camera and lenses instead of frilly extras.

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.

Review: Peak Design Leash and Cuff

Leash & Cuff

Peak Design returned to Kickstarter with their latest project and guess what? They did it again with the same crowd funding that started it all. They set out to raise a measly $10,000 and walked away with $215,000 worth of pre-orders for their new campaign.

I’ve worn it, depended on it and put it through its paces. These are my thoughts on the company’s second endeavor.
