Re: M5 hand strap -- possible?

I know Canon doesn't sell it. I said so way above. I'm hoping someone here has personal experience with a strap by some other manufacturer. Or, if one doesn't exist, how they modified or otherwise added to one of those with the too wide top strap so it would work with the M5. This type of info isn't likely to be found from a BW employee.


Actually, many of the "experts" are vendors of the equipment, or B&H employees trained by the vendors on their products.

You should not rule them out without as least giving them a tryout.  Their customer service is excellent.  I like the Black Rapid wrist straps that mount to the tripod mount better than that one.  I know nothing about that brand, but I know Black Rapid.

Re: M5 hand strap -- possible?

OK. I'll try.

BTW, The link you furnished shows exactly what my problem is.  Note the top part of the strap, it requires a slit-shaped lug to attach.

I don't see what you're talking about, but I have really bad eyes, so what I don't see doesn't mean anything.

 

Like I said, contact the product experts at B&H.  That's the first product I found.  Maybe they have something else..Their web site allows you to filter products as you browse, but the filters are not always perfect.

Re: M5 hand strap -- possible?

OK. I just got off the phone with BH. They have 6 pages of hand straps, none work -- all the same problem. So the person I spoike with suggested getting a triangular split ring as an interface connector. So I ordered that. Now I wait a week to see if it'll work.

Thanks for suggesting BH. It looks like if their solution isn't it, nothing is.
