Mounting Capture on a backpack strap (VIDEO)

Capture lets you secure your camera to any strap on any backpack. This opens up a vast array of camera carrying possibilities for hiking, downhill or cross-country skiing, backpacking, climbing, motorcycling, or simply strolling around town. Check out this video for some quick tips on shoulder strap positioning...

Some of our biggest tips:

  • Wear Capture on your left shoulder strap, just below your collarbone. This position provides ample support and easy access to the quick release button. Try moving Capture up and down on your shoulder strap to find out the position that is most comfortable for you.
  • Tighten your backpack straps and engage the sternum strap for more stability. It'll make it a lot easier to move around with your camera, and it's typically how modern backpacks are designed to be worn.
  • Backpacks that are fully packed and heavier will further increase the stability of your camera. If you're trying to figure out how to mount Capture to your bag, load your bag up first so you can get a feel for the weight distribution.
  • Cinch the sternum strap over your lens barrel for a super-secure hold. This is recommended for especially jarring activity like skiing or trail running. It will anchor the camera to your chest and keep the lens from bouncing.
