    I have a couple (from my slr kit), but our cameras are too small the hand won't fit right...

    The one I use fits on just the single neck-strap lug on the right side of the camera, with no connection to the tripod mount. This works very well on the PEN, and is independent of camera size (thus avoiding the problem Daniele (pharaviel) mentions.

    Unfortunately, I can't link you to anywhere to buy them, as mine is more or less homemade, modified from a camcorder hand strap.

    I REALLY like Gordy's camera straps (can you tell by the all caps and the bold?). They are well made, comfy and look great. They make the wrist strap in 3 standard sizes or you can get a custom sized one. On my G2 I have the extra long lug attachment version. They are definitely my favorites and I'm not sure I'd even consider a different type anymore.

    +1 for Gordy's... They're a bit like Domke I think - get one and you just won't bother looking elsewhere next time :smile:

    This is the Regular length with integral strap bumper on my GH2...

    Yeah, the Gordy's look good. :D But that's a wrist strap, not a hand strap... I personally prefer a hand strap, myself. Not sure about Chris.

    I'll try to get a picture taken of my rig with the handstrap. It's kinda tough though 'cause I don't have enough bodies and adapters to go around to take pictures of them. I'll have to swap things around to get a photo of the hand strap in use.

    I also have a gordys, they also make straps that attach to the tripod mount, if one is looking for a hand strap

    Thanks guys, the Gordy straps look lovely, I've found a stockist in the UK so for £14 I think I'll try that, to be honest it was probably a wrist strap I meant rather than hand strap anyway I didn't think about them being different things!

    Keep in mind if you order direct from Gordy's website prices are inclusive of worldwide shipping ;) dixeyk posted the link above...

    For an EP1/2 you might want to try the string-attachment, rather than the lug (the one in my GH2 is a lug-mount) - I'd imagine this would allow a bit more room for your hand on the grip.
