Recomend me strap for my E-620

I want a better strap for my E-620 that I can take off when I have the camera on a tripod. I dont use the battery grip I have much at all.

So what do you suggest.

Re: Recomend me strap for my E-620

I have used a variety of Op Tech straps on all my cameras and I find they perform very well and are good value. There is a wide range of straps and quick release clips available and you will certainly find something suitable for an E620.

I use the side grip and a rapid sport quick release on tripod fitting which comes with strap.

Re: Recomend me strap for my E-620

I've used Tamrac straps for years now.
Good value and they come with wee pockets on either side intended to keep spare
memory cards in. I have a 50p in one (handy for tightening the baseplate screw)
And a 8gb SDHC card in the other.

Re: Recomend me strap for my E-620

Sorry I use an Olympus hand grip on my camera and also use a Blackrapid RS Sport strap with a quick release tripod attachment with an attachment point to allow the strap to be connected or disconnected quickly if you need to mount the camera on a tripod.

Re: Recomend me strap for my E-620

Yet another vote for OpTech. The pro-loop system allows you to remove the neoprene centre section quickly and leave just a short strap for tripod work. With the centre section fitted the strap is very comfortable even with the 50-200 fitted.

I use similar with the Quick Strap (Black Rapid copy) but some Black Rapid & home made fittings.
