Hi all...just received on of the fire-sale EOS-M's. Just playing around with it on the couch after un-boxing it, and I'm liking it so far.

One question I have is this: Are there any aftermarket strap attachments that work on the EOS-M's "buttons". The straps I regularly use are slightly wider than the stock Canon neck strap (Tamrac quick-release type). I saw a picture of one on DPReview forums, but the OP didn't respond to inquiries as to where they came from.

Anyone have any ideas?

I use OP/TECH-straps. I took those connectors from the original strap and installed same system connectors as I use in my other gadgets. Then I have these:

Thanks for the pic, but unfortunately, all of the Tamrac straps that I have are the opposite: the part that attaches to the camera is the other half of the buckle (so you can't mix Tamrac and OpTech), and the webbing on it is wider than the Canon webbing. I'm happy with my straps, so I'd like to find something that works with my straps.

I'm wondering if there are any aftermarket connectors like Canon's, but that would allow a wider strap.

Don't know which size is the Tamrac's buckle, but OpTech has the both sides.

You can ask them if their UniLoop female connector can match with Tamrac male connector.
