Wrist Strap for KP

Any recommendations for a nice looking and comfortable wrist strap for my KP? I am not really looking to do a neck strap...the KP is my light weight, DA limited rig.

I liked the Peak Design Clutch (though they also make a lighter version called the cuff, it doesn't look as cushy as the Clutch) with my K-30.

For me the Cotton carrier hand strap is the best, I use that with my K5.

gordy's camera straps

Highly recommended. I use one on my K-1.

I like to use the one that comes with the camera because I can use it as hand strap or neck strap. With a hand only strap, the flexibility does not exist.

Not the best looking maybe, but I use Op-Tech wrist straps.
They're made in the USA, if that matters.
The steel colored one is going on my silver KP when it arrives.

Same here. I use mine on my K-S2 when it's in the and out of my camera bag. When i want to change to a full strap it's a quick switch to the Peak Design Slide. Also the attachment plate doubles as an arcai swiss plate so its quick and easy on and off a tripod as well.

I've had Lance wrist straps on my K30 and K5ll for a while now, and love them. I had an Optech neoprene wrist strap on my K30, and liked it quite a bit as well. Just make sure the one you choose is strong enough to put up with whatever you're going to put it through.

Me too, I have them on both my cameras. I find neck straps are inclined to get caught on something and anyway the body and lens are too heavy to hang around my neck.YMMV

I use the Joby with my K-5II and HD DA Ltds as well. Excellent for the purpose. Spiderpro makes two dynamite hand straps as well. Expensive but worth it. I tried one on my friends Nikon D-810. Best strap I have ever used.

I use either Lance Lug Wrist Straps or Gordy's leather straps on film cameras (except my LX, which has its original neck strap).

The Lance is the most comfortable wrist strap I've used.

I just put a Joby on my K-S2 I love it the camera feels secure while the around my wrist is loose enough and small enough to be comfortable unless the camera comes out of my hand at that time the strap tightens around my wrist. Works like but does not look like a hangmans noose. The strap slides smoothly thru the Y

see Lance Camera Straps | Classic Lug Wrist

Nice soft and strong strap......Goes easily with camera into a small bag opening.... I dangle a K-1 and DFA150-450 off my wrist with it at times.



or for some real class

http://www.artisan-n-artist.com/product_detail.php?id=53 Have one of these on my K3.... passes the DFA 150-450 dangle test as well!

However, the lance strap would pass the "wildly swing the camera and DFA" to defend one self against a certain death attack .... the best.

I'd put the Artisan on the KP myself.... small, classy and secure.

Op-Tech. Cheap, modular. Use connectors with strap or sling.
