Handstrap Recommendations for the 450D?
Feb 24, 2009

I've never been comfortable with a neckstrap. They do seem to be more tolerable slung over the shoulder, but sooner or later, I'm going to pick up the camera and the neckstrap is going to snag on something and rip the camera from my hands. It has almost happened twice already.

What I would like to have is a handstrap, like this one:

The problems with this one is that they do not list a product for the 450D (but it would probably fit) and the price - $70 (US). Am I just too cheap or what? $39 for the adaptor and $31 for the strap just seems too high to me.

Anybody know of any alternatives out there that do not require the battery grip to work?

TIA!
