Recommend a good hand strap for G1X


I've ordered a G1X and it should be arriving in a few days.

I have arthritis in my fingers that causes me difficulty gripping some cameras ie. my 5DMKII and 7D. For now, I have been using a G10 on a neck strap.

Can you recommend a good hand strap that will prevent me from dropping the G1X if by chance, I loose my grip?

I do not want to carry the camera in a camera bag or on a neck strap if possible.

I have heard Gord(?) leather straps and a OP Tech neoprene strap that goes completely around one's wrist are very good.

Also, there is some person (forgot who) in Italy that makes custom camera everyready carry case and hand straps for the G1X?

Any advice or recommendations what works best for the G1X?

How do you carry the G1X?

Kind regards and thank you in advance.

Thank you.
