p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · recommend a wrist strap for m4/3?


I've gotten used to the wrist strap I have on my Canon 7D. Easy to walk around with it 'attached' to my hand and feeling secure. I've searched around on line for a similar thing that might work best for my Oly EPL5. I'm not finding a lot of ideas. Anyone here use a hand strap they like? Here's about the only one I see in the style I'm after:

I use the 'Camdapter' strap on my smaller cameras (X100). It allows a secure hold without having to actually grip the camera.

Here's the strap on my E-M1. I tie the top of the strap to the camera tightly with a loop of cord or a tie-wrap to keep the strap close against the camera body, That helps keep the camera higher against m hand, which allows to loosen my finger's grip on the body with the camera slipping away.

Hi Michael, wondering what adapter you're using with the nikon lens and does it work well.

Last night, ordered a simple fotodiox. A nikon 'f' adapter.

Stan. Sorry to hijack this with an off topic question.

One thing I can say is that I've just started shooting with an m5ll and use a shoulder strap wrapped around my wrist. Lowepro right now, but also last night ordered a think tank shoulder strap that I hope is better for this small body.

I do have a wrist strap on my ricoh gr, but I can slip that into a pocket if i need both hands. I can't do that with the m5. So i just hang it off a shoulder when necessary.

good luck finding the right solution for you.

I have a couple - one cheaper no-name one from back when cheap adapters were still $50 on eBay, and a Voigtländer that I bought used here on FM for about $100. The Voigtländer is nicer, but the photos end up looking same.

thanks for the ideas, you all. That looks like a nice one alright, Michael. May have to put that on my Amazon wish list. Somehow, when I do that, things miraculously show up as gifts!

The Peak Design "Clutch" looks good although I have not used one:

I prefer the regular neck strap or Black Rapid-style shoulder strap (I use both interchangeably) for a very simple reason - changing lenses (which I do very often) is both quicker and safer - as it's impossible for your camera to slip off your hands and fall to the ground! That's peace of mind to me.
