    Grip?

    I have one very similar to this. Its cheap and it works.

    ...nevermind i cant post links. Search amazon for a 7$ "camera grip".

    I would like to see one with a thinner aluminum bottom though.

    you want it to carry it for you? :ugh:

    its a hand strap, it does its duty just fine. Only improvement is making a better way of holding both the hand strap and neck strap


    though I never actually use the neck strap :o

    No but I want to be able to use it without having to keep my hand perfectly perpendicular to the camera. Its annoying as hell. Plus, if you have it tight enough to actually keep it on, after you take your hand out enough times, it starts to pull the rubber off the back of the memory door.

    The better option for me was the piece of shit thing we sell at work that I picked up for $3. It actually works, lets me have my hand at more of an angle, and clips tight so you can simply un-clip it to take it off.

    However, the real solution for me was just a cameraslinger. Having a camera permanently attached to my hand with no easy option to get it out of the way when I dont need it doesnt exactly work with me and the way I cover things. The cameraslinger does.
