[Misc] Wrist Strap Nikon D7000 [Solved]

Just received a D7000 and am over the moon so far.

I have a camera bag, but prefer to use a wrist strap over a neck strap for the actual camera. The one I cannibalized from an old Canon P&S to use on my now old Panasonic P&S is not strong enough to support a DSLR and lens.

So I am seeking recommendations for a quality wrist strap that is not too involved - I've seen the ones with the velcro wrist cuffs and that's more than i need. I also do not want the hand straps that attach to an eyelet and the tripod mount.

i just need a reasonably strong wrist strap that will attach to my camera and rescue it if/when i somehow lose my grip.

ETA: Should have looked here first:

Sometimes there are great deals to be had on ebay.

You may also want to take a look at this. »www.blackrapid.com/ They make a great shoulder strap that keeps the camera near your hip instead of the middle of your chest. I use one and it's great. They also have some nice wrist straps that may fit the bill.

I wound up buying this wrist strap:

Thanks for the Black Rapid link - those across the body straps look really good. I'm just not a fan of neck straps, so those are a real alternative.

Good choice for your needs. Crumpler is a good brand so you'll get years of use out of it.
