    Excellent Camera Wrist Strap?

    I've spent some time looking at the various wrist straps on offer for the Fuji X100 series and the amount you can purchase is a bit boggling.

    I'm leaning toward the Peak Design version: http://amzn.eu/4leEod3

    Canvas, so in warmed weather, less likely to become uncomfortable, like leather can do and has reasonable reviews.

    However, before I opt for the PD, does anyone have any others they'd recommend?

    Have a look at Footprint. As far as I can tell they donít have a website but I have purchased from them via EBay.
    Excellent quality English saddle leather in a variety of colours and a range of colours of stitching.
    Iíve had a couple on my cameras for a couple of years and have had a lot of positive comments.

    I use Peak Design stuff, including the wrist strap. Very good gear, and nicely interchangeable between cameras.

    Please Note: It is possible that Griswold may know nothing whatsoever about horology. It's even possible that he has never even owned a watch. It is also highly possible the he has a strange imagination. His wife insists he would be far better off paying more attention to taking his medication on time.

    Cheers chaps.

    Footprint looks like a good cost effective, handmade, solution.

    However, the PD stuff seems to have the edge, as Griswold has mentioned, due to ease of interchange and I also like the fact it is canvas.

    Cheers Tony.

    Looks like I found the solution before asking; just wanted to check that I wasnít missing any better options.

    Just ordered a Peak Design wrist strap from Amazon based on the advice in this thread - thank you all !

    I was especially thrilled by the concept of the ďanchorsĒ so the strap can be interchanged on different cameras !

    Just a heads up for anyone else thinking of ordering.

    When I posted the link above, the Amazon price was just below £30 (£29.95 iirc).

    They only had a few left and now they've done the annoying thing that can happen on Amazon when stocks are low, they've upped the price! They are now listing the same strap for £64.40 via a reseller.

    My advice would be to find another seller (they are on eBay, new, from UK sellers for £28-29) or buy direct from PD (USD $29.95).

    Whow !!! I guess I was extremely lucky then - I managed to get it for just below £30 + shipping !
