Press Release: New b-grip items


Contact: Jeff Seidel • Phone: (410)-374-3250, • E-mail:


Hampstead, Maryland – June 21, 2017 – OmegaBrandess is pleased to introduce the new Flexy Strap, an ultra-compact camera neck strap and wrist strap all in one.  The Flexy Strap is compact and extremely comfortable thanks to the thick and soft Neoprene neck pad.  The strap cord is made using a proprietary technology allowing an elastic effect.  The result is the strap extends when carrying a camera around the neck and shortens when using as a wrist strap.  The Neoprene pad incorporates a magnetic button that allows the conversion to a very comfortable and secure wrist strap.  The minimalist elegant Italian design is the perfect solution for the photographer on the go who needs both comfort and requires minimal storage space when not in use.  Made in Italy; Retail price $39.99


Also announced is the b-grip EVO Plus Belt and Backpack Camera Holster Set.  B-grip EVO is the innovative system for carrying a DSLR Camera on your hip. A universal carrying system in which your DSLR does not depend on laces, neck straps or a bag…

Made with the highest quality materials EVO guarantees comfort, safety and on the fly availability of your DSLR. This translates into a purely pleasurable photographic experience in every condition of use.

The camera is directly connected to the body allowing a freedom of movement and availability which has never been achieved before. The camera does not swing continuously into the body when you are moving around. Its small form factor makes b-grip EVO unobtrusive and always available for an unsurpassed ease of use. EVO will accommodate most configurations including flash, Zoom lens and a battery grip. EVO supports a weight up to 17.64 lbs. and adapts to the needs of professional and recreational photographers alike.

Included with the b-grip EVO Plus is the b-grip Backpack Strap.  The Backpack Strap quickly and easily attaches your b-grip and camera to vertically oriented straps and other closed circuit straps that you normally would not be able to attach your b-grip to. Great for backpacks, the b-grip Backpack Strap is sure to keep your DSLR conveniently ready to shoot at all times.   Made in Italy; Retail price $47.99.

Last Day in Sin City for WPPI


Today is the last day of the WPPI Expo and we are a little sad that it is ending, but excited that we met some very awesome folks this week. We look forward to keeping in touch with you and sharing ideas!

We hope that if you were able to attend WPPI this year – you had a fantastic time, learned some new techniques, made some new professional contacts and possibly met new friends! Who knows, maybe even won a little $$ in Vegas?!

If you stopped by our Booth 1414THANK YOU!  We hope you won something fabulous from spinning the Wheel of Prizes – We hope we were helpful if you had questions!

If you were not there this year, but wished you were…

♦♦ make a plan and make it happen in 2018 ♦♦   You will be glad you did. Promise.

The Morning After….

You and your neighbor Bart shared more than just a couple cold ones on National Drink Beer Day yesterday. That is why the day after National Drink Beer Day is very appropriately – National Coffee Day! And since you spent all of your readily available cash on said cold beer last night, you were very pleased to find that most places were handing out free small or medium coffees to their customers this morning. Which you needed. Bad. But making 5 stops to 5 different coffee joints was a little bit much. Just sayin. Glad your headache is better though.


Now you are seriously re-thinking the entire skydiving adventure trip. Good – I mean what were you thinking? Call Bart tonight and suggest White Water Rafting. I like it! MUCH closer to the ground….you can swim, right? Of course the GoPro will still work – but again, you will need BOTH hands free to use the oars (or to hold on for dear life). And you still have one more day to get those hands-free mounting accessories for the GoPro camera! Just Click Here to order online. Did I mention shipping is FREE within the continental US?

Much Better Idea!!!

Memorial Day, which is observed every year on the last Monday of May, originated as Decoration Day after the American Civil War in 1868 when the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of Union veterans founded in Decatur, Illinois, established it as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. By the 20th century, competing Union and Confederate holiday traditions, celebrated on different days, had merged, and Memorial Day eventually extended to honor all Americans who died while in the military service.

Not valid on prior purchases, limited to in-stock quantities.  Offer is subject to change without notice at the discretion of OmegaBrandess.
