+1 on the OpTech wrist strap. I've been using it since I bought my camera. It's safe, and the foam rubber cuff is comfortable (and cheap).

About as minimalist as you can go, though no quick disconnect. Having said that, any current QD system will leave stuff dangling off your camera, so hardly "minimalist."

Gordy and his crew do beautiful work.

Just what I've been looking for. Been using a simple shoe string on a key ring cut to exact same size as the long version of the gordystrap. Gotta order one!

Made ne out of paracord. I'd have to take a pic but Google pulls up interesting results.

Not mine but I'm pretty sure this was the guy I got the idea from.

I have a no name neck strap with fastex type quick release connections that are of opposite types on each end so they can be connected into a shorter hand strap without the neck strap portion. My (RSS) L plate has a strap loop on the end by the battery door so if I make the strap connections very short, I can turn them into a hand grip when I am not using the neck strap.

+1 for the paracord DIY.

I was just planning on making one myself. Paracord, $2. Optech connectors (optional) $7.
