Camdapter handstrap product
i've had the neck-strap that came with my G2 on it since i got it, but found i don't use it as a neck strap ever. i do however always end up wrapping it around my hand so that i don't feel like i'm going to lose the camera if someone bumps me or i stumble - however this was not ideal.
after the recent grand canyon trip, i knew it was time to get some sort of wrist strap for the camera.
i was just looking for a nice quality leather wrist strap when i came across the Camdapter Campstrap made for smaller point & shoot cameras: http://www.camdapter.com/handstrap/camstrap.html
this looked like exactly what i wanted - a better design than just a wrist strap, it actually compliments the grip of the camera and helps you hold/stabilize the rig rather than just securing it to you in case of a trip or bump. the company also makes products for larger professional cameras that look nice.
i measured my hand according to their instructions and ordered the "large". 2 days later it arrived at my door. the package included the Campstrap, 1 sheep full-color instructions in good ole eglish (not Engrish), a business card, and an allen wrench with leather tab on it for installing the Camstrap.
the product attaches and adjusts easily. i went out and shot a little just to get a feel for it, and i really like it. basically it allows you to feel like the camera is secure and not leaving your hand. you can also easily let go of the camera to open a car door or manipulate something you are shooting and it will dangle the camera very close to you, instead of a foot away like a typical wrist strap.
there's enough adjustability to let it be plenty loose so that you can reach all the controls and not feel totally constrained. the Camstrap doesn't interfere with changing the battery or SD card either.
my only complaint is that it does use up your tripod mount. their professional level products use an adapter that keeps tripod mounting capability, but i selected the Camstrap point & shoot model for it's simplicity and size since i don't use a tripod and i wanted something minimalist to match the micro 4/3rds style G2.
all in all seems like a great product. i believe all the versions are real leather, they are made in the USA, and it costs about the same as a nice traditional leather wrist strap but with a more clever design - what's not to like?
i'll post up in a few months how well it works when it gets more use in the field and to see how well it lasts.
