Intro2020 Press Release
Introducing Cotton Carrier - a revolutionary way to carry your camera!
The Cotton Carrier Camera System allows you to carry one or two cameras of any size and weight. All the strain and pain placed on a photographer’s neck and shoulder is completely eliminated with the camera “locked” securely into place, but instantly available. Perfect for all kinds of photographers, the Cotton Carrier camera slings, camera vests and camera holsters will appeal to news photographers, sports photographers, wedding photographers and “active” photographers including mountain bikers, mountain climbers and snow boarders. Travel photographers who are typically out and about all day benefit from the freedom from any fatigue created across the neck and shoulders. Whether novice or pro, young or old, male or female, this broad spectrum of customers have enjoyed the Cotton Carrier’s ability to allow them to have both hands free, with no swinging camera dangling off their neck.
The Cotton Carrier Camera Vests & Side Camera Holster are manufactured in 1680 Denier Polypropylene material and all 9 Cotton Carrier products carry a lifetime warantee.
All products are available immediately with Suggested Retail Prices as follows:
Cotton Carrier Vest for 1 camera: £139.00 inc VAT
Cotton Carrier Vest and Holster for 2 cameras: £169.99 inc VAT
Accessories from £46.00 inc VAT
“Attending photography shows, I am always thrilled to put a Cotton Carrier onto a person and watch their face light up as I place my heavy Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 100 - 400 mm lens onto the Camera Vest,” says Grant Vetter’s, Advertising & Marketing Director at Cotton Carrier. “I can’t feel the weight of the camera,” is the common reaction from most people. With most cameras and lenses weighing 4 to 12 pounds, this cumbersome weight is evenly distributed around the torso unnoticeably, not the neck. The weight distribution is so effective that many photographers with neck or back injuries have been able to comfortably pursue their passion for photography. Cotton Carrier’s patented mounting system utilizes a hard anodized aluminium hub that attaches to the bottom of your camera. By simply sliding the camera into the receptacle on the Camera Vest camera bag or the Carry-Lite Belt camera sling system, the camera is “locked” into place for secure camera carrying. A Universal Tripod Adapter Plate is available which enables photographers to use their Arca-Swiss compatible (Kirk, RRS, Wimberly) or Manfrotto tripods, allowing them to move straight from the Cotton Carrier to their tripod in an instant.
