Straps and Hand Grips for Fujifilm Cameras
Fujifilm produces three different types of camera strap designed for the hand, the neck and the wrist. The best strap for you is purely down to personal preference and the situation you'll be shooting in.
Neck and shoulder camera straps
A popular choice for professionals or someone who will be carrying around a camera for extended shoot, as this type of strap can offer a lot of support. The material of a shoulder strap can make a difference to the feel and look of the strap. Leather is a popular choice, usually in black or tan, with a padded section to rest comfortably on the neck or shoulder. Canvas straps are a durable option, or waterproof neoprene. They can range from slender, rope like straps to wide, eye-catching designs. The thinner the strap, the more likely it is to dig into your shoulder or hurt your neck, so for longer shoots a thicker or padded strap is recommended.
Ergonomically designed hand grips can give you extra options when it comes to shooting. Usually plastic, these handles screw into your camera where a tripod would usually go. These can improve steadiness and add extra angles to your shorts. They are also good if you have to shoot over the heads of crowds. The pistol grip is a popular design.
Wrist straps are great if you have a small point-and-shoot camera. However, you can also get thicker straps that also hold heavy DSLRs. These are great when you are on holiday and want your camera close to hand, but aren't constantly snapping away. Most come with an adjustable toggle that allows you to keep the camera tight to your wrist, to avoid it accidentally slipping off.
Most Fujifilm camera straps are usually black, though a wider range of colours are available. Straps range from small lightweight, nylon straps for point-and-shoot cameras, to large, bulker padded straps for professional photographers.
