Hand / wrist strap for K-3

How would you fix genuine Pentax handstrap (Pentax 85101 DSLR Leather Hand Strap PTX85101) to K-3 camera body (with RRS L-bracket)?

Any way you can. I bought one of those, then discovered that not only do they not come with directions, but also no one knows how they're "supposed" to be attached. Then I bought a Camdapter and love it.


I do not use an L-bracket, however.

Try OP/TECH. They have one you can put just about anyplace. It uses a plastic connector with one end that attaches to the camera by a cord. The wrist loop connects to it.

The peak design option works well using quick release string fobs. They attach wherever there's a hole.

I still have one. It was on my K10D most of the time, along with my regular strap. Since going to my K-3, I have moved on to just an Optech which is easy to substitute a wrist strap for their longer strap.

You're 100% correct about the lack of instructions. I couldn't believe it when I opened the box, especially since it is not very intuitive. I finally found enough pictures on the web to get it done. Did I do it correctly??? Who knows, but it never came off unless I took it off. It was also not very good with the battery grip. It limited the ability to switch hand position to the grip for portrait photos. On the other hand, the hand grip/strap accessory for my PZ-1p was a model of good design and ergonomics.

U don't use that Brand , but instead made my own for my three bodies. Just a Nylon strap and the appropriate buckles......DIY but very handy.

This is what concerns me: narrow nylon strap attached only to one fixing point (at camera body or at L-bracket). That way I believe sooner or later K-3 + AF540FGZ + DA* glass choose hard conrete landing. I try to find out how to fix a camera at two points (let it be nylon then).
