About

This camera plate fundamentally changes the way you photograph.

The CP.01 gives you the greatest freedom ever in the composition of your pictures and keeps your camera right where you want it. In front, on your hip, behind your back. Just grab it and you are ready to shoot.

The CP.01 is made to fit any DSLR or mirrorless camera.
The CP.01 is made to fit any DSLR or mirrorless camera.

We are photographers and DoP/Cameramen. In our 25 years of professional experience we have often been annoyed by simple things that restrict our creative workflow. A permanently slipping cam, an uncomfortable carrying position, or straps that continuously block our view on the controls.

Annoyed by this?
Annoyed by this?

That's why we sat down and completely rethought how you carry a camera. The result is the SPINN CP.01 camery carrying system – an extension for every DSLR & DSLM, that feels incredibly good from the first moment.

Stay in perfect touch with your camera and select your favorite position. It now rests bombproof – without swinging or slipping. In the crucial moment, you will intuitively grab it.

From a smaller set up with a wide-angle lens to a video setup with optical viewfinder, your camera always hangs perfectly.
From a smaller set up with a wide-angle lens to a video setup with optical viewfinder, your camera always hangs perfectly.

Enjoy the freedom when composing pictures, while all controls of your cam are freely accessible without tangling with your strap – no matter if your shooting in landscape or portrait format.

Walking or cycling – no more annoying hinderances. The camera is part of your body and is still fully accessible anytime. 

The SPINN CP.01 shifts your cameras center of gravity from top to base. The distance of the eyelets leads to a perfect balance – carrying the camera will be incredibly easy.

The SPINN CP.01 is more than just a carrying system. It also effortlessly connects your camera to most tripods thanks to its already integrated Arca-Swiss compatibility.

The CP.01 perfectly supports cameraman and women. It is the only camera carrying system that let you professionally work with an optical viewfinder in the video mode.

Before we decided to present our system to the public, we wanted to see the SPINN CP.01 in a professional working environment again.

The renowned beauty, portrait and sports photographer Peter Lueders shares his impressions about the SPINN CP.01 camera carrying system. Peter worked with the CP.01 camera plate at a model shooting in the studio and on location in New York. 

THE SPINN CP.01 is made to perfectly fit any DSLR or mirrorless camera through its reversable and slightly asymmetric design.

Features: 1) Recessed strap eyelets /// 2) Slip-proof rubber pads /// 3) Four attachment slots /// 4) Quick release tripod support with Arca-Swiss compatibility /// 5) Smooth edges for maximum comfort and perfect looks /// 6) Hidden features for future accessories /// Full protection of the camera base, no disruption of tilt-swivel displays

Specifications: overall length: 115 mm (4.5") /// width: 38 mm/32 mm (1.5"/1.25") /// weigth: 50 grams (1.75 oz) /// adjustment grid: (in shooting direction) stepless, (sideways) 4.5 mm (0.17") /// CNC-machined from full aluminium and black anodized.

If you think that the SPINN CP.01 is just right for you, then have a look at our different kits. If you order several items together with friends, it will be cheaper because we save efforts.

You can choose the color of your strap after the campaign in our survey.

Together with the extra long SPINN Heavy Duty Camera Strap, our system offers unprecedented comfort when carrying professional cameras. Of course you can also use any other strap together with the SPINN CP.01.

This strap intentionally waives the so-called "comfort features" of others straps. It's ultra-light, feels great on your clothes and keeps your camera in a perfect position.

This strap can handle any camera. Lightweight and reduced to what counts. Finely crafted by hand and tested to a maximum load of 75 kg (165 lbs). 

Features: Skin-friendly & smooth touch /// No stiff components scratching the camera body or yourself. Specifications: usable overall length: 140 cm (55") /// width: 38 mm (1.5") /// weigth: 44 grams (1.55 oz) /// maximum load: 75 Kg (165 lbs) /// Made of durable polyester yarn, triple stitched

We will manufacture the camera strap for you in Germany and offer it in different colors. In beautiful black, stylish olive-green, pink and sunflower-yellow.

We started with a very clear vision into the development of the SPINN CP.01. CAD-supported, we first produced very rudimentary functional samples on the 3D printer, which were also immediately satisfactory, at least in the basic functions. 

Just a small excerpt from the designs, components and sketches that have been created...

Afterwards we analysed and measured all relevant DSLR and DSLM cameras - which was the beginning of the issues. Because functionality is just one thing, the finished product needs to be comfortable and a perfect match for a wide range of very different cameras. 

CAD designs - above: the first design with an almost final form factor, below: the final design with which we have started the CNC machining.

When we look at the product development today, we sometimes have to smile a bit. It has been a very long testing process but we have come up with a plate that is flexible and can be used on all DSLR and mirrorless cameras. Many professional photographers and cameramen from our community have helped us – with their equipment and their experiences. Many thanks for that!

After the SPINN CP.01 has proven in many hours on a wide variety of cameras that it does exactly what we expect it to do, we are ready to make it a reality for you. All the products shown in our campaign have been made here in our facilities - with passionate craftsmen and -women, with engineers from the automotive industry and us – a team of product developers, professional photographers and cameramen who have been doing their jobs for many years.

Risks and challenges

We have founded our company in 2014 and are familiar with manufacturing and trade, as well as international shipping procedures with regard to carrier selection and customs formalities. We can therefore guarantee that we have calculated this project with sufficient accuracy and that we will not be faced with any unforeseeable costs.
The SPINN CP.01 also has the advantage that there is only a manageable number of participants in the production of the camera plate, the strap and the accessories. We know some of them for many years, others enjoy a long lasting good reputation and have proven to be very reliable in the previous processes.
However, we would like to point out that every project can be delayed. In most cases, this is caused by delayed or incorrectly delivered components. And also the dispatch of the rewards to all persons participating does not run smoothly in the planned time.
We know all this, and we can handle it. In general, we are committed to doing everything in our power to deliver your SPINN camera plate on time and to inform you about all further processes in regular campaign updates.
