 Hello Kickstarters and Friends of the Lens Loop,

     It's been an incredibly exciting, trying, and rewarding several months since we first launched the Lens Loop this summer. 

     By now, I hope that you've all gotten your straps and have been enjoying using a simpler, smarter camera sling. 

1. Please share your thoughts and experiences about the Lens Loop

    I've learned about some of my favorite camera accessories from amateur reviews in the photo communities that I participate in online.

    A number of you are members of online photo communities, including Flickr, Dpreview, FredMiranda, the brand-specific forums, etc.

    Now that you've had a chance to use the Lens Loop, please take a minute to share your thoughts on it with those communities. It would be a huge help towards helping Lens Loop become a sustainable company.

2. The XL Lens Loop

    By popular demand, I'm having an extra-large version of the Lens Loop made. These will be made from Black Webbing and Antiqued Brass hardware with an additional 18 inches of material over what we use in the regular Lens Loop. The Classic XL is available for pre-orders at $45

    I'm placing an order for 50 units from the factory and should be shipping out in the second week of December. 

    At this point, the production run will be limited to these 50 units, although if there is enough interest, I can certainly make it a regularly stocked item.

3. Lens Cap Holder Adapters

   I'm still waiting on my Lens Cap Holder. I've spoken to Mark, and a new one was mailed out to me on Monday 11/7. I have two designs for an adapter ready to go with the manufacturer and they are standing by to begin production. As soon as I have a chance to test the two side by side and am satisfied with how they work, I'll release the order to the factory. 

    In the meantime, if you were a Kickstarter for both the Lens Loop and Lens Cap Holder, please complete the form below, and I'll mail you an adapter to use both together once they are ready.

 
 
As always, thank you very much for your support, 
and happy shooting!

    I love my Lens Loop! It is comfortable and easy to use – much better than a typical neck strap!

    The Lens Loop has improved my shooting experience immensely! This is the strap that should be included in the box with every camera purchase… Thanks again for creating this amazingly simple, yet indispensible product to market for photographers!

    Wow, thanks for creating an adapter and then offering it at no cost to those that kickstarted both projects! That is awsome! Very commendable. :-)

    Thanks for the clarification of using the Lens Loop and the Lens Cap Holder together. I have both and was a little puzzled since I found Lens Loop from my support of the Lens Cap Holder and the promise the two would work together. I was almost to the point of cutting/modding my holder to make it work but am thrilled there will be a more considered and designed option for doing so.

    Absolutely love this strap. It is the first sling strap that I’ve used that actually worked having already tried some of the more expensive solutions out there and frustrated with constantly having to readjust the padding on the shoulder and trying to use bumpers which simply don’t work. This is perfect for one camera. Still not sure what to do with two though. One other thing which would be useful would be the addition of a pass through so that the screw can be attached to the can or lens and a tripod as well. I’m using one from another strap I already owned and it works well but is a little bulky
