Wrist strap for zx-l

Anyone know if there is a wrist strap available for the zx-l or how to rig one for it?

Many different wrist straps will fit this camera, Jonathan. Check around some of the more popular mail order stores, such as B&H...

wrist strap

Make sure you use a wider strap, not one intended for a smaller point & shoot camera with the tiny string through the camera lug.

Another alternative is to simply make your own strap. For my K10D, I found a strap from an older camera that was the perfect width for the camera lug. I then cut the strap long enough to wrap through the camera lug and around my wrist, overlapping by an inch about a half inch from the camera lug. I sewed the overlapping sections together repeatedly with heavy-duty thread. Afterwards, I covered the sewn area with about an inch of black electrical shrink-wrap tubing (for cosmetics only), carefully applying heat to shrink the tubing to fit the strap tightly. The end result looks like a a commercially made wrist strap.

The only disadvantage of my strap is that it isn't removable (other than cutting it off). This is not big deal for me since I only use a wrist strap. If you need a removable option, replace the sewn area with one of those little devices used to adjust the length of a strap. You may be able to salvage one off the old strap you used for this project.
