What's a good wrist strap for X-E1 preferably easy to release?

Op/Tech indeed

The quick release aspect looks good but those plastic connectors don't inspire confidence of security.


I use the same optech connector and both the string and plastic connector are more than adequate. The connector is the same sort of thing that you would find on a backpack or similar device. They just don't come loose or apart unless you want them to.

The connectors also come in packs of 4, and can be fastened to conventional straps. Enabling quick change between wrist or neck or shoulder straps. The same string fastener is kept on the camera, swooping to the alternative straps made easy.

By now, I have a whole system around the Op/Tech offerings, including large, padded neck strap, a sling, a backpack-attachment system , as well as mini-QD loops for a very compact, minimalist solution. I use it on a largish D7000 as well as on my X-E1. There is nothing flimsy about it at all, and the quick-connects are very convenient in the field. Highly recommended.
