Ok think I need A hand strap for my 5D2 and 7D since I do a lot of shooting on the fly and move about using the camera in one hand while getting about. Which hand strap do you guy recommend ? Both bodies have the battery grip not sure if that makes a difference .

I have the Vello strap. I didn't have a battery grip when I bought it. But, it works just fine with the grip. I just took the plastic mount off. It was much cheaper than the Canon and it's very comfortable. JMO

I've had the Canon E1 on my 7D since I got it in Jan. 2011. It's comfortable to use and been thru alot of abuse. So when I got the 6D -- I bought another one. Both cameras have battery grips. I've never had any other hand straps so I don't have anything to compare to. Hope this helps.

I bought into the hype of this strap and while I agree that it looks great, I prefer the Canon strap for comfort.

A lot of people seem to like the Markins strap.

All my 5 Canon and 1 Nikon cameras have the Canon E1 hand strap attached to them. Canon has since replaced the E1 with the E2 hand strap which comes with an anchor that screws into the tripod screw hole at the bottom of the camera. (The anchor screw is very handy for ungripped cameras but redundant for gripped cameras.)

I have the Canon WS-20 wrist strap and really like it. Easy to slip into and out of.
