Our latest trip was coming up fast and I couldn’t wait to try out the newest piece of travel gear in my photography arsenal.
I couldn’t think of a better place to test out the Deekec Camera Clip than a full week walking around Disney World and Orlando, snapping photos and shooting video, all with the comfort of being able to clip my Sony a6300 onto my backpack strap.
At $23.99, the Deekec Camera clip comes in considerably less expensive than it’s twin-brother, Peak Design’s Capture Camera Clip.
Yes, I know, Peak Design was the first to come out with this clip design, but hey, when you’re on a budget, you look for what works, and the Deekec Camera Clip did NOT disappoint.
This little beast is made is solid metal, the only plastic piece being the side blue release button.
The arrow in above left photo points to the solid metal piece that keeps your camera from meeting the concrete. The photo on the right shows the solid metal plate that attaches directly to the camera and keeps the camera steadily in place while on the base.
At first, I was worried about clipping my thousand dollar Sony, but after an hour or so, the full metal construction gave me confidence and peace of mine that it wouldn’t fall out. Hell, I even ran with it clipped, and the camera stayed in place.
I give this product 5/5 stars in quality, construction, ease of use, dependability, size and looks. It not only saved my neck from being rubbed raw by Sony’s rubber-textured camera strap, but it was comfortable to carry and didn’t break the bank.
