Product Description

Pho-Reel™ Plus: More than hands-free mobility, it’s an assistant at your side all day.

The patent pending design provides hands-free mobility and comfort. No more neck pain from your camera strap. No more fear of the strap sliding from your shoulder. You can quickly move your camera into place, from side carry, to eye or tripod for shooting.  Optional accessory cases for lenses and filters slide into the harness. With the “Plus” version carry your tripod “hands free” or other camera gear in padded cases. Worn in pairs with Pho-Reel or another Pho-Reel Plus and now you can carry two cameras. Note: The price reflects a single Pho-Reel Plus strap.

Special features:

  • Asymmetrical padded shoulder strap distributes weight evenly.
  • The underside is lined with military-standard nylon mesh to promote wicking, dissipate body heat, and provide additional padding without adding weight.
  • Chest strap prevents shoulder strap from slipping.
  • Two foot (610mm) locking retractable vinyl coated steel cable allows ease of shooting either hand held or from tripod but avoids camera swing in retracted position while walking. 
    • Note: Cable actuates at the push of a button. ALWAYS hold the camera with a little tension when extending or retracting the cable. If the camera is unclipped from the reel, hold the Bozeman clip while retracting or extending the cable.
    • A clear poly-olefin shrink-tube is included for covering the stainless steel mounting barrel (upper portion) of the clip for those concerned about additional protection.
  • Your order includes one custom-sized base plate and mounting screw. Additional plate and screw are available for purchase. Please make sure you select your camera body.*
  • Cameras with battery grip require a side mounting clip that is wider and longer. Also, the side mounting clip is used for carrying by the lens ring for better balance of a camera with telephoto lens.
  • There are three attach & carry options:
    • Base plate mounted directly to camera body with provided screw/washer.
    • Base plate mounted either into the camera body or a telephoto lens ring using your tripod mount—making your camera always tripod ready.
    • Most camera’s strap bracket/ring will take our custom designed stainless steel clip
  • Harness has accessory loops front and back for carrying small accessories cases:
    • Extendable lens case by Photipherals
    • Large professional filters’ pouch by Photipherals is also convenient for stowing lens cap, phone, and keys.
  • Pho-Reel Plus comes with additional mounting clips and hanging straps with latching connectors giving you versatile carry options: small after-market camera bag and other Photipherals accessories and equipment.
    • Use only padded accessory cases or soft items on tether straps when carrying a camera on the reel to avoid the camera making hard contact.
    • PhorMat: waterproof ground cover
    • Pho-Pod: tripod case worn scabbard-style for quick access to your tripod
    • IonosGear: like having a portable clean-room for lens changing to prevent sensor dust
