On article Accessory Review: Peak Design Slide Camera Sling strap (137 comments in total)

"Attaching the Slide took less time than any strap I have ever installed."
Wowie zowie. A compelling reason to buy yet another strap.

Despite which their Capture Clip is something that's actually worth buying and using. Providing you're wearing a backpack.

I'd suggest reading this.

Odd that DPR comes up with the idea of reviewing this camera a couple of days after TOP's article...

rsf3127: If you travel eith you stuff only to civilised places, maybe this or one of the Ona priducts may fit the bill. Anywhere else, I prefer my backpack with the opening hiden from bad intentioned hands.

A Big Roller is always an impressive way to tote your gear around in. Me, I'd tend to go for an even bigger Hummer.

Always wunnerful to see a new piece of photography luggage. After all, there are so few to chose from! Cool... awesome... must-have...

Just spotted the price. A phantastic bargain to boot...

alcaher: NASA sucks, they always waste alot of money and resources. Take all that money for better things to do here in our the planet.

Insane. Every problem on the beautiful planet we're fast destroying is a consequence of an epidemic of human over-population. Yet this never comes up in discussion of potential solutions.

Move to Mars? Utterly, profoundly, quite literally, insane.

Of course the reason no-one wants to discuss the population growth problem (which is relatively easy to solve compared to all the other possible "solutions") is that the current ruling economic model requires ever-increasing numbers of consumers. This will only be realised once it's too late. And it's almost too late now.

Yup... Another case of

Just what the world needs, some more photographic backpacks.
Fortunately it's impossible to get them right so we can look forward to an endless supply of new versions. And of course many colours haven't been tried yet.

WayneHuangPhoto: Tamrac spelled backwards is Carmat.

And for those who prefer train travel to hiking, re-arrange "tamrac" to give "Amtrac" (well, close anyway).
Alternatively those of us who prefer to drive rather than lugging around sacks full of photographic gear on foot, it's "Tarmac".

SeeRoy: Is this one unusable by spectacle wearers too? I almost got caught by the first version (aka "user test" release) - no dioptre adjustment; VF focus different depending on EVF or optical mode. But of course you can sell almost anything into this market so long as it's "different" and "new".*
Edit:
*I forgot to add or "retro".

And why wasn't that essential component included in the original version? My interpretation is somewhat cynical.

In reply to:

pkcpga: Just got off the phone with Fuji and they now are putting out a request for the OVF it seems the bright line bracket moves after you push the shutter button causing you to miss bracket your shot. They opened a ticket since the xpro 2's they had at the service center did the same thing as mine causing them to miss the top half of the coffee cup he was trying to photograph in OVF mode only. Hopefully Fuji can fix this quickly.

Doesn't it strike anyone that this sort of nonsense makes no sense at all in a contemporary piece of technology? Incorporating deficiencies of previous, antique, designs.

Wow. You could probably get work copy-writing for Fuji's advertising dept.

Gesture: Thanks for showing the hybrid viewfinder. BRAVO FUJI for trying to expand the viewfinder.

I didn't notice an "expanding" VF on the previous version which I tried. A couple of other faults though (see above.)

The company name's a misprint surely? There should be an "n" on the end of it.
