One More Chance to Get Capture for $50

2 comments

The Skinny:

For 24 hours only (starting this Friday at 12:00 AM PST), Capture will be available at $49.99 (limit one at that price).  That's $30 cheaper than you can get Capture any other day of the year.  Get it at peakdesignltd.com and be done with your holiday shopping.

The Fat:

Hello everyone,

Happy Thanksgiving!  I want to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday here in the US.  There is so much for me and my family to be thankful for this year, and I hope the same is true for all of the backers who helped make this year so amazing.

As most US backers are aware, the day after Thanksgiving is Black Friday, which is traditionally the biggest shopping day of the year for people in the states.  In my past, that's usually meant getting as far away as possible from a retail center.  Now that Peak Design (along with a tiny new person named Josephine) has consumed my day to day life, Black Friday takes on a whole new meaning.  We really believe that Capture is the perfect gift to give for anyone who loves taking pictures, and we want as many people as possible to have it in their stockings.

There's no question that the word of mouth advertising you have put forth is what's driven our sales after the kickstarter, and we figure that the best way to generate more of it is to let you get Capture at the lowest price we can afford.  Please spread the word!

I can't even tell you how excited I am to be working on the next generation of Capture accessories right now.  2012 is going to be filled with innovative releases which will build on the backbone of the Capture system and further refine it.  We remain dedicated to making the hobby, profession, and passion of photography simpler, more convenient, and more enjoyable.  If you like what we've done with Capture, I know you're going to like the direction we're headed.

If you have questions, you can always message me here on Kickstarter, or join the conversation on our facebook page.  There are already almost 2,000 active participants, and the number grows every day.

Thank you, and be well.

Peter

      Accessories. What you need to come up with is a rain-cover. Something that attaches to the back of capture. It should fold down small, but when needed it should stretch forward over the camera and then attach to teh back of capture from the other side, like a hood. Of course it should be flexible/stretchable enough to accomodate cameras in each position /forward, sideways etc). and fole small enough to be able to stay at the back of capture always, maybe fold back into its own small pouch. That would make capture complete

    If you can't swing $50 for a Capture unit, you can still help the project by pledging any amount you feel comfortable with. All pledges are much appreciated.

    Need extra plates for multiple cameras? Tack on $25/plate to your pledge for any reward you select. Keep in mind that the Bread and Butter reward already comes with 1 plate. Be careful here though...this reward alone will NOT get you a Capture unit...it's for extra plates only. Have a look at the Bread and Butter below if you're looking to pre order Capture.
