Hand straps are meant for the photographer that prefers to hold their camera in their hand and not get tangled up in a big, long neck strap. Cotton Carrier has had their hand strap out for a while, but today they’re announcing a version with an Arca Swiss Plate that goes into the camera’s tripod socket via a 1/4 20 screw.
The Cotton Carrier hand strap has adjustable velcro and the plate is made of anodized aluminum. In real life use, this will mean that you can put the camera right onto your tripod head without needing to take off the strap at all. That’s pretty darn nifty for sports photographers on the go.
The new Cotton Carrier Hand Strap goes for $19.95, there is still no word on a release date yet.
