Wrist Strap for Canon EOS 5D III
« on: April 19, 2014, 12:30:31 PM »
Hello,

I have a 5D III and nearly always have the battery grips (BG-E11) attached. I can't seem to find any wrist straps that can be used with the battery grip attached.

Do you guys know of any?

Many thanks, Ben :)

Found an answer. The Canon E2 wrist strap DOES fit the Canon 5D II with BG-E11 attached.

The E2 is a hand strap, not a wrist strap.  If you're looking for a wrist strap, where the camera dangles free from a loop around your wrist, Op-Tech makes one. 

A hand strap wraps around the back of your hand for some extra support while shooting, and also makes it more secure to hold/carry the camera one-handed.  With the battery grip, you don't need the tripod socket attachment that comes with the E2, since the battery grip provides the lower lug for the strap.
