Hampstead, MD—OmegaBrandess announced its exclusive distribution in the United States of the b-grip line of camera belt grips.
The b-grip is made by CPtech, a new company located in Bologna, Italy, that develops and manufactures camera accessories. Based on the experience of professional photographers, CPtech’s philosophy is to design and manufacture innovative, dynamic products that meet the needs of a photographic market in continuous evolution. The b-grip is one of their flagship products.
The universal grip is designed to provide a strong, safe support for a digital SLR. Its base attaches to the user’s belt, or to the belt provided, while the quick-release plate attaches to a camera’s tripod socket. A quick-release mechanism is provided for instant access to the camera when required. A safety system prevents accidental release of the camera, and an additional supplied safety cord can be deployed for extra peace of mind.
The b-grip’s broad base spreads the weight of the camera to make it comfortable to wear; unlike a conventional neck strap, the b-grip holds the camera firmly in place so it cannot swing about. With the b-grip, users can mount the camera either lens down or lens up; the lens-up position provides a “third hand” when changing lenses.
When using a backpack, the b-grip can be attached to the chest or waist straps, spreading the weight across the shoulder straps to make it easier to carry the camera for extended periods. It’s also said to be easier to see the rear LCD when reviewing images. Most important, reports OmegaBrandess, users “can eliminate the tedious procedure of removing the backpack, extracting the camera, taking the picture, replacing the camera, refitting the backpack. Now, with safe, instant access to your camera, you’re free to take pictures as you walk, with no delay.”
Manufactured in Europe, the b-grip is constructed from high-quality materials and comes with a dust and rain cover for additional protection. omegabrandess.com
