Hi,

I thinking of getting a hand strap. However, i'm considering between two different hand straps. One is the original Canon while another is the Matin one. Can someone tell me which would be a better choice ??

Canon


Or

Matin



Thanks,
Mark

for me, i'm thinking of buying a hand strap because i don't want to always hang it around my neck and most of the time while snapping pics, i always twirl up the neck strap and wrap it around my hand and it sometimes obstructs me. ;)

whaha.. just bought a battery grip and the hand strap. however, i feel that original canon hand strap very difficult to adjust the aperture dial. but no choice cuz already bought it. :(

Personally, I initially got a handstrap with my Nikon D50, and like the feeling of having the camera tied to my hands. however, the neckstrap has to be connected differently, such that the camera hangs sideways. After a while, I just stop using the handstrap. I still prefer the neckstrap, cause it allows me to easily change filters, lenses with 2 hands with the cam body hung from my neck. Neckstrap allows me to keep both my hands free.

One CSer in past stated that using handstrap lightens load from wrist, so less handshake..
I found that tat's true to a certain extent, but hand tends to get 'stuck' in strap, less versatile.. I'm using a Matin, but neckstrap still attached for whenever i need it.. :)
