I use a Vello. Don't know if it's leather, but it's comfortable,seems durable... and inexpensive.

I use the Canon E2 and also the ones that came with the Cotton carrier harness (external link). The latter are not leather, but I like them better than the Canon as it keeps my hand steadier.

I have also bought "genuine" Canon E2 straps from online that quickly fell apart. My wife immediately detected that they were counterfeit by the shoddy stitching.

A lot of people like Herringborne, but I didn't like mine after 2 months use. I prefer the OEM E1 strap.

Markins also makes a highly desirable one.

You'll hear alot of people recommend Herringbone, but from what I've seen it's inferior to the Markins. The Markins is quite abit more expensive, but very easy to recommend if you can afford it.

didn’t know Markins made one will have to look it up thanks..
well looked them up but it seems if you are using a grip like the canon bg6 with the 5D2 you have to get a plate? guess if you have no grip you get type 1 with plate and if you use a grip with your camera you get type2 with no plate is this plate not needed with the grip on your camera this is with the herringbone . but noticed the same thing on the Markins site so i am confused . are you guys using your camera bodies without grips ?
Or better yet if you use your body with canon grip which plate if any do you use?

Grips have a strap loop...you don't need the plate.

Thanks for the information now to order one..you guys say the Markins is better than the rest why? I do like the look of the herringbone with the black leather and red stripe running thru it goes with the Red stripe on the lens ...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the Herringbone has some sort of button that can get loose and/or affect the functionality of the strap, requiring a small mod (probably very cheap and simple). Markins just has the buckle release and no button to bother with. Very simple hand strap, high quality. Depends on what you want to spend I guess. Both good products.

I recommend the Camdapter hand strap! Both my cameras sport them.
