What are you guys using for a hand strap on a T2i with a battery pack ?
Friend of mine shoots with a Nikon and when I try his generic model on my T2i the bottom section of his bracket interferes with the battery grip
I picked up a different one at Henrys Camera and found it to be too tight and restrictive
I find I'm forever adjusting something on the camera so ease of removal and how quick will be a prime consideration
Thanks in advance

I picked up one of these cheap ones. The part that screws in the bottom slides to the left/right as needed. I have really enjoyed having it so far. I don't have a battery grip on my camera however.

I use a Canon E1 hand strap that attaches to the strap lug on the bottom of my grip, no screw on bracket needed.

I had a strap that sounds similiar to what you describe
Too small , couldn't hardly get my hand in it
Wonder if its the same one ?
Thanks

Using the Herringbone Hand Strap. I love it. It comes with a mounting bracket for non-gripped cameras (e.g. mine) or just the strap if you plan to use the strap lug on your grip. They are a bit expensive, though. You'll also have to order it on ebay.

Really big long thread on the subject:

I've gone thru this thread
Herringbone sounds like the way I'll go
Do you know if anybody stocks this in US or Canada ?
Thanks
