San Francisco, CA—JOBY introduced two adaptable camera straps: the UltraFit hand strap with UltraPlate, which is designed to allow photographers to seamlessly transition from handheld shooting to capturing composed shots on a tripod; and the DSLR wrist strap.
“As we always aim to achieve with all JOBY products, our new UltraFit hand strap with UltraPlate and DSLR wrist strap enable professional and enthusiast photographers to utilize their gear in an even greater way,” said Michael Jue, director, Product Design and Management. “The products’ ergonomic designs provide lightweight comfort without compromising camera security.”
UltraFit Hand Strap with UltraPlate. This is a useful combination of a streamlined hand strap and universal quick-release plate. Photographers can keep the hand strap attached to their camera while mounting it to a tripod or even using another camera strap. The hand strap is compatible with standard and pro DSLRs with or without a battery grip. The UltraFit hand strap with UltraPlate is also geared for shooting with a tripod. The UltraPlate features a universal tripod quick-release plate with built-in Arca-Swiss compatibility and two additional 1/4”-20 screw mounts.
Photographers can attach all types of accessories to the UltraPlate without removing the hand strap, including JOBY’s Ultra Fit sling strap or other camera straps, flash brackets and other tripod quick-release plates found on all leading tripod brands. The baseplate design makes the JOBY UltraFit hand strap with UltraPlate compatible with all camera tripods and camera straps. Also featured is JOBY’s UltraFit Layered-Pad Technology, developed to provide lightweight support without the bulk. The thin strap pad conforms to the shape of one’s hand and will not interfere with use of the camera’s controls. The UltraPlate’s design also provides easy access to a camera’s battery door. $49.95.
DSLR Wrist Strap. A cinching wrist strap for DSLRs or mirrorless/CSCs to prevent accidental dropping, the strap weighs less than a half ounce and is JOBY’s minimalist solution to keeping cameras safe and secure. Employing a strongly braided cord with a soft-to-touch finish, the strap will automatically tighten around the wrist if the camera is dropped. The wrist strap connects to a DSLR or mirrorless/CSC via a universal shoulder lug attachment and comes in one adjustable size to fit most wrists and in two colors: charcoal and neon green. $14.95. joby.com
