p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Best Handstrap?


I'm trying to find a good handstrap for when I shoot my D3. Love the camera, but when I shot Canon 1D series I had a strap on the thing and my hand didn't fatigue nearly as fast.

What do you guys have experience with and recommend?

I use the Canon E-1 hand strap. Used it on my D300 and now the D700. Fits better than the Nikon for my hand. Not sure how well it will work with the D3.

CAmdapter is awesome. Adorama and Band H sells them too.

Way better than Canon's flimsy (by comparison) E1.

For D800 there is nothing better than the Markins P800U specially design just for it.
This design wrap around the bottom plate of the D800 and is slim and only 43 gm.

The Really Right Stuff BD800 only comes next.

Follow by Sirui TY-D800 (no picture yet) but very similar to the TY-D700 as shown.

Than follow by Camdapter ACRA XT which is very basic.

Forget about the Canon E-1 or E-2 which is very plasticky and expensive, might as well get the Matin Multi Camera Grip-10 or 20 which cost half as much and look very similar.

For me I got a Markins P800U alloy plate and use the leather hand grip from the Matin Multi Camera Grip-20 for less than the price of the Nikon AH-4 Leather Grip with a plastic plate.
