Wrist Straps

Discussion in 'Open Gear Talk' started by Bill Gordon, Sep 24, 2010.

  1. I am toying with the wrist strap concepts and first I was wondering if anyone uses them here and if so...what do you feel about the O ring or string attachment as shown on the site..gordy's camera straps
    This is not an advertisement but a question

    I use the optech CAM strap. I don't think they sell the non-QD version anymore, however, it actually has a thicker/wider webbing at the attachment point than the QD version.

    I never used one with my film cameras.... but I do find its a MUST with my digital's... If one doesn't come in the box as an included accessory, I immediately attach one.

    attachment.php?attachmentid=167.jpg Almost essential for compacts if carrying in the hand for any length of time I find, I use a Gordy as shown here, good quality and fair price. I went for the O ring as I thought is offered more security but I'm sure the string is fine especially on smaller lighter cameras.

    I have used Gordy's straps for years on all of my cameras.

    The string is very strong, I used to have a video I took of my swinging my a700 (with a grip and CZ 135mm f1.8) around and around . The string is strong period.

    With my smaller cameras I just use a simple little Olympus wrist strap with a cinch, anything else is overkill in my opinion...
