hi I’m P and I’m Adam and these are cameras drives and this is our new camera strap slide we’re going to tell you why this is the best camera strap that’s ever been made but first we’re going to show you why other camera straps don’t quite cut the mustard the fact that these are given away with every camera ever sold is the reason why peak design exists as a company these hurt nobody with a DSLR really needs any more help looking like a tourist sometimes you want to strap sometimes you don’t have to try to undo one of these never try to undo one of these ever try to do one of these I let’s take a look at the other common type of strap sling straps work like this you screw a connector into your tripod socket which then glides freely up and down a stationary strap slung across one shoulder what’s good about these is they keep the weight of the camera off of your neck and put it onto your shoulder for this drawbacks two for one they take up the tripod socket the strap in the pad are supposed to stay put but they don’t and things get worse when you start walking around they’re great at getting your camera off your neck but they turn your cannon do a loose cannon it’s easy to sit around and talk about the problems with existing products the hard part is designing the Sun this is sly slide can be a lot of things like a sling strap or a shoulder strap or an extra it’s a strap that plays nicely with your tripod and one that helps you take smooth video it can be worn tight or loose up big people or little ones it can hold this kind of camera like this or this kind of camera like this slide connects like this and removes like this all with one hand and super strong the bottom of slide editing perfect that’s smooth stitch lists and sealants but it needed to be padded too how did we do it tubular webbing on a patent pennant we put grips on the topside tube so that if you want to use it as a shoulder strap you can do so comfortable every single part of slide is designed to do a specific job and do it well like all peak design products we designed slide with everything you need and nothing you don’t slide isn’t really a neck strap or a sling strap it’s a new kind of strap it’s started by looking at the best of what’s been done before we then incorporated tons of customer feedback and we applied our own expertise as product designers we’re proud of what slide has become and we know that you are going to pump you

    Video says other slings are out of control when walking. I would have like to see more explanation or demo on why the slide wouldn't be the same when walking with it as a sling. I see the same issues. Nothing can stay stationary unless you clip it like the capture clip. If a strap can keep a camera stationary while I'll hike, bend over to pick up my kid, etc., then there would be no business for the capture clip. The capture pro is still the only thing on my wish list.

    You say the other straps don't stay put on the shoulder 
    It would be no different to yours coming off the shoulder 
    or is yours magic
    Plus I have herd of quite a few people with the side 
    where the camera fell to the ground because your  little round disk
    came out of its keeper
    Your design looks great but needs a better securing mechanism

    Wish you gave the option of purchasing the Slide with either the Swiss ARCA, or the RC2 plate. I have an RC2 mount, but if I purchased the EXTRA mount from you guys, the strap climbs to a ridiculous price…and I still get stuck (paying) for a Swiss ARCA plate which will not be used. Bummer! I'm stuck drilling holes to modify my existing RC2 plate to retrofit with your clips. 🙁

    So the important question is, have you guys fixed the popular set back for this strap? I was one of those people who actually research if this was good or not, but I've also read some feedbacks where the latch would just come off completely and not lock your dslr in place to fall off.

    So, I usually (almost always) hike with my camera and long lens, that means i carry my backpack with me all the time as well, I am using RS-5 (cargo from blackrapid), it is comfortable and works really well, problem with cargo is that it is bulky from the top, and the way i do it is that i wear my camera first and the backpack over it, so there is always a conflict of straps, but the camera still slide well on the strap………..hence, i was looking for a new thinner strap( CURVE, CROSS SHOT, AND SLIDE SL-2) and was wondering since in peak design the camera doesn't float on the strap (in blackrapid the connect R smoothly glides over the strap, without shifting the position of the strap(not always)), will it it be hard to use peak design slide with backpack? will the motion of camera will be free with backpack over it? of should i change the way i carry both? i really don't want to ditch sling type straps coz i find them really comfortable for a long hike…

    Was looking into a leather strap to add some aesthetic look and feel and padding to reduce more of the stress for prolonged carry.

    When you place the camera on a tripod like he does at the 2:19 mark, it looks like the strap no longer remains a loop that would stay on your body. Or do the two ends of the strap clip together so that you don't have to find a place to put the strap while taking the picture?

    I tried this strap , it's not a bad design (no pun). However, after a few days the padded part started to get ugly creases on it. Also the ring that you use to adjust the length felt a little cheap.

    I just sent mine back…worst experience I've had with a strap.

    How is it that straps have become so technical and a genuine pain in the ass to use?!

    I tried to get the little string thingy through the lugs on my camera and they were too thick. Then I put the d-rings on and that just exaggerated the problems. I also had the Clutch to attempt to use both but NoGo.

    I think the most painful part was getting it back in the package! LoL

    I ordered one of the ridiculously expensive leather straps and had it inboxed and on the camera in 5 minutes and haven't had to adjust anything.

    i find it comfortable on the shoulder for long periods on foot with camera. But, the current anchor while it is proving to be more secure and reliable than the older version, it really should be made even better — perhaps use a metal wire covered with the same outer part of the current version. A fexible metal woven wire would give much more piece of mind for the expensive gear the anchor will hold. Either do that or include a $1000 part labor coverage caused by the anchor breaking. It's a nice design, but that weakest link(the anchor) has got a lot depending on it. Make it stronger

    I think it was a little misleading to say the black rapid just swings your camera about. the locking clips keep The camera from flailing or being in the way. I love my black rapid 30L, but this was taking unnecessary shots at rapid, especially because it's very misleading to say that your camera will flail when attached to it. the locking clips work very well.

    Conversely I do hate that it goes into the tripod socket.

    What do I do with the strap if I want to take the camera off sometimes and carry it by hand for quick, spontaneous shooting; then reattach to the strap for maybe walking to another location or because there isn't much action going on? Do the anchors clip together so I can keep the strap on my shoulder, ready for use, or do I have to take off the strap and stash it somewhere when I'm not using it?

    It's a bit misleading when you described the sling straps (Blackrapid in your example).

    A. Blackrapid has an optional arca swiss tripod mount. I guess they just didn't include it because not everyone really needs to put their cameras on a tripod that frequent. But hey, still appreciate you guys giving it out on your strap.

    B. Well the strap that doesn't stay on your shoulder means you are not using the strap properly. And in any case, they have the sports version of it. Your strap actually slips as well (even after turning it around to the grip side)

    C. Cameras on my hip doesn't move around on a Blackrapid strap because they can be locked in one place. That's why your camera in your video swings freely. If there's one issue here is it scrapes the paint out of your camera from scratching to much in your jeans/belt. Which yep, does happen with your strap, unless I adjust it higher than my hip – which is completely uncomfortable.

    I just want you guys to be more honest especially when you're trying to step on another product that actually works. I bought your strap for neck strap reasons. And since I am not shooting concert gigs anymore, I dropped Blackrapid and started using PD.

    I have two of these including your latest version with the small tripod mount for the anchors. I was really happy with these until yesterday. The small mount had come unthreaded and my Nikon D750, 35-70mm f/2.8, and Godox Xpro trigger all came crashing the the ground. Lucky for me Nikon makes cameras and lenses that can take a hit. The trigger was fine. Now I'm debating selling my Peak Design Slide straps or just trashing them.

    I'll be looking for a solid camera strap if anyone has any recommendations. Went from telling people how great this strap is to from now on I will be warning photographers about this.

    This video couldn't be more accurate. After years of various strap, slings, harnesses and what no, I followed a lot of praise for this strap on various FB photography forums and bought a Slide Lite for my Fuji X-T2. I couldn't be happier with this strap! Comfortable, easy to put on and remove (a big thing for me), looks great, works great. It makes doing video and photography work for my channel here, and other task so much easier and less fidgetty. Thanks for such a great strap! I've been telling all my friends to use it, and will probably review it on my channel soon. Love you guys!

    Completely ridiculous product. It does exactly the wrong and the bad of all others. Is this humour ? Joke ? Funny to make me smile ? I laugh alot ! Better idea. Take a Blackrapid, simply adapt an Arca Swiss to it and add a second smaller strap for fixing the out of control that you are talking about and then you have the best product on the market. Yours has little round plastic and small rope that I don't like at all and the price is as the product itself…completely ridiculous.

    dear peak, or design, i do have a comment. your strap is to short. i am six foot and 1 inch. im also a big guy (not fat) your slide is to short for my frame and height. most other brands design for 4 foot tall people. the Nikon strap is so short i have the camera under my chin. please fix this issue i have, and keep it cheap cause im not rich. i promise to wear your strap on each of my youtube video and brag about my custom peakdesign strap to all my followers..

    Зачем эти мощные красивые ремни если камера цепляется на тоненькие шнурочки. Бред.

    Again. Who's idea was it to make the swiss arca plate hex nut removable only with a hexagonal tool? Whoever was it….

    Very nice product guys but i have an idea .Lets say you holding 2 cameras with your strap as shoulder strap so you must make a small strap that would connect the 2 straps behind photographers back so will fall down.That would make you product prefect plus you already have a wrist strap

    Me encantan estas correas (strap). Son magníficas.
    Tengo una Nikon D7100 y con ella va muy bien.
