Default Hand strap

Does anyone have a recommendation for a hand strap for the FZ35. If I don't have the strap around my neck I usually find myself wrapping it around my wrist several times. It's kind of awkward. I saw this on Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/Opteka-Profess.../dp/B00166EUI0

Looking for more suggestions.

Walmart has a nice fanny pack in the sports section for $10 thats quite roomy for this camera and has 2 water bottle side pouches perfect for the TCONN-17 and hood cover. I'd look into one and the camera can easily be accessed using the pouch rather than having to carry it.

Just a an idea Clint

My main concern is to keep the camera from dropping out of my hand while holding it. Even the small wrist "strap" I had with my Canon secured it from falling. I find wrapping the neck strap or letting dangle is awkward and sometimes gets in the way of the shot. Looking for something like what Greg suggested. As for carrying the camera, I'm leaning towards the MRock Grand Canyon. I hope to get my LT-55 lens today. The T-Conn 17 was back ordered in all the places I looked at so I decided on the LT-55.

I agree Clint, I see what you mean. I'm always wrapping the strap around my neck when photographing over water etc. A nice wrist strap would be easier in certain cases as such.

I'll have to get a wrist strap myself.

Great idea, hope I can find one of these locally at the camera shops. Need it when I do video.
