In this short video, he walks us through settings for capturing the ultimate panning shot. Curious? Have a look and give it a try.

Joe works with numerous camera and strap brands — but more than likely, you’ll find an F1 living on his Leica.

Ben Staley: Adventure & Art

Featured Video Play Icon

Ben Staley is an Emmy-winning DP/Producer, gifted photographer, and hardcore adventurer (sometimes for pay, sometimes for play).

Adventure & Art, Ben’s new YouTube channel, features (as you may have guessed) liberal helpings of both photography and adventure — a recipe Ben is uniquely qualified to serve up (he films Deadliest Catch for gosh sake).

The majority of the series focuses on pretty deep topics — like inspiration, motivation, credibility and purpose — but there’s a little bit of gear talk as well.

Speaking of gear — keep your eyes peeled for Ben’s Leica M6, peppered throughout the episodes. There’s a camera that’s seen some action.

“This is my favorite camera that I’ve ever had.” — Ben Staley, on the Leica M6

Ben’s got a couple of Simplr straps, but the one that graces his favorite rangefinder camera happens to be an M1a. Oh, If that strap could talk…

The Phoblographer Hates Highly Recommends our M1a

Chris Gampat the Phoblographer reviews the M1a Mirrorless Camera Strap

It’s not often you read a review that starts with the word “fugly” … and concludes with this:

“In terms of functionality, the Simplr M1a Mirrorless Camera Strap has to be one of the best straps from a small American manufacturer on the market. I’m pleasantly surprised despite how simple and deceiving it looks. Can it use some more Patina? Heck yes. But does it serve its purpose? It more than does; and I’d even recommend this strap be used with full frame DSLRs.

Best of all for a lot of you folks: they’re only $42 on the Simplr website. If you don’t care about Patina the way that I do, then I strongly suggest that this is THE SINGLE BEST strap that you can upgrade to.”
