Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Camera

Camera:
"I think the concept is great, but PD didn't resolve ease of use - quick access to the camera."
_
"It actually requires two hands to free the camera from the clip, which isn't easy when you need to reach across your body with one hand, while holding the release in the other."
_
"One wrong move, and your camera is lost."
_
"If you're really scared, the camera plate includes safety belt loops... again, on all four sides."
_
"Regardless of how i tried to carry it, it was never easy to quickly take out my camera, get a quick shot, and keep up with the rest of my group."
_
"There is nothing more frustrating than spending 3 seconds too long fumbling with your camera, and miss that PERFECT shot."
_
"I wanted something to secure my camera on belt harness when I was out hiking, so my hands could be free and the camera would get decent support."
_
"This camera clip is convenient and easy to use, especially, for long distance walk."
_
"Neck strap may be less of an issue, but then with a heavy lens attached to the camera, it weighs too much to be carried comfortably."
_
"The best camera is the one in your hand."
_
"- It's sturdy- It's elegant and good looking ;-)- It attaches well to different cameras (gopros, point-and-shoot, SLR's)CONS=====- The locking mechanism is a bit too convenient especially if you attach sideways on your belt."

Clip

Clip:
"It actually requires two hands to free the camera from the clip, which isn't easy when you need to reach across your body with one hand, while holding the release in the other."
_
"I see myself using the clip but unfortunately it has not replaced my Spider Holster for many reasons."
_
"Having a belt I think is the best option for using this clip, although a backpack shoulder strap might be effective as well (a single shoulder strap however is awkward).The reason a neck strap is ineffective, and why using this clip with a belt is better, is because:#1."
_
"Tried to use this with my D800 and AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f 2.8G ED VR II and AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f 2.8G ED, but the clip didn't work too well for my needs."
_
"Is the clip uncomfortable?"
_
"The bottom end of the clip does press into my hip, which does get a little uncomfortable."
_
"The clip is sturdy and well built."
_
"This camera clip is convenient and easy to use, especially, for long distance walk."
_
"As you may see in demo videos it looks easy to clip and unclip, but in reality it is not."
_
"PROS=====- It's convenient and can attach to pretty much anything and in any way (upways + sideways)- The plate can attach any way to the clip as well since it's a square."
_
"Having a belt I think is the best option for using this clip, although a backpack shoulder strap might be effective as well (a single shoulder strap however is awkward).The reason a neck strap is ineffective, and why using this clip with a belt is better, is because:#1."

Design

Design:
"The design of the knobs isn't the greatest."
_
"After this complaint went up I recieved contact from Peak design tating there had been a glitch in the system."
_
"Another thing that has to be mentioned is, peak design did take full responsibility for the problems and fixed them promptly which is to thier credit."
_
"The QR plate of Capture Clip is compatible with such QR clamps with the detente pin and my original QR plate (which came with the ball head) is not compatible with the PD Capture clip design."
_
"Peak Design was more than happy to exchange the item but I decided to keep it and just work out the kinks."
_
"Not hard to assume this is a defective return Peak Design reshipped without an inspection."
_
"Beautifully craft, solid design, simplicity to use."
_
"I would have made a video review for this item except the folks at Peak Design had already done an excellent job of it."
_
"This Peak Design Capture fits very well.1."

Lens

Lens:
"On the thinner shoulder strap, the camera flopped around a bit, and when I put the sternum strap around the lens as recommended but then I found the camera to be digging into my chest so I just let it flop around as I skied and it was fine."
_
"I used this with an EOS T2i + battery pack and 80-200 L lens (the setup was pretty heavy)."
_
"I like being able to change lenses while having the camera clipped in."
_
"I walked for about 2 miles with this on...the best two miles I've had while with the camera lens combo."
_
"I used the clip with an EOS 60D and 24-105 lens and had no problems whatsoever even after I'd attached my handstrap (which was also easily done).The camera felt secure and at no point was I worried about anything working loose."

Quality

Quality:
"My original complaints were about build quality, ease of attachment detachment, and a few other things."
_
"The build quality is pretty mediocre for an $80 device."
_
"If you want your camera accessible instantly, secured and out of the way for pretty much any activity I can think of, and don't mind the above stuff, this is a great, well built, quality device that you can have confidence in."
_
"I believe it is alumninum, but good quality thick aluminum.5."
_
"My original complaints were about build quality, ease of attachment detachment, and a few other things."

Strap

Strap:
"It's actually pretty hard to use and get adjusted correctly to straps or belts."
_
"So using my belt was out of the question, and using the strap I had on me wouldn't work too well for I need."
_
"Having a belt I think is the best option for using this clip, although a backpack shoulder strap might be effective as well (a single shoulder strap however is awkward).The reason a neck strap is ineffective, and why using this clip with a belt is better, is because:#1."
_
"The only problem I had was that I couldn't get it to close on the shoulder strap of my daypack (Osprey Manta 36)."
_
"But with my camera bag should strap or my belt for my pants it wasn't working too well."
_
"However this discomfort is minimal compared to using a shoulder strap, where I would wind up with a sore neck, and a sore hip from walking funny to keep the camera from bouncing around."
_
"So honestly best option would be to have a Yeti Black Rapid Strap for dual camera strap instead of using a clip system in my opinion at least for me."
_
"I can also attach the clip to the strap of my backpack such that if I decide to bring two cameras, one in my hand and the other attached to the shoulder strap, both will be easily accessible."
_
"Having a belt I think is the best option for using this clip, although a backpack shoulder strap might be effective as well (a single shoulder strap however is awkward).The reason a neck strap is ineffective, and why using this clip with a belt is better, is because:#1."
_
"This device is great, I have taken over 10,000 photos with the Canon Rebel T2i and this system is much more effective than wearing a neck strap."
