    Panasonic GH2 - wrist strap?

    I recently picked up a 2nd GH2 body and would like to use a wrist strap on this body. Any recommendations? I am leaning toward a Gordy's wrist strap with string attachment. Any one using the Gordy's wrist strap on their GH2? Would there be a better alternative?

    Thanks!

    This is what I use on both my GH-2 and E-PL2......I like it because it has a quick release if you don't want to be encumbered by it.

    Gordy's straps are nice too.....

    i use the black pen leather wrist strap that comes with the mini leather pen bag. it does say pen on it but i dont care. matches very nicely with the silver and black details. it also comes with a nice black leather neck strap too....but i havent had the guts to hang it off my neck because of the rivet problems with the older gh1's.

    I use a Gariz leather wrist strap - a little short, but works perfectly with the Pen when used for the left hand.

    Cheers

    On my GH2 I use Luigi's wrist strap which are a little wider and softer than Gordy's. I use Gordy's on my G9.

    Here's where you can see what Luigi has to offer:

    Here's a couple pictures with Luigi's wrist strap on my GH2:

    Looks like a RRS L plate, I also have one.

    A second question is what is the bubble level that is in the hot shoe? And, how well does it work?

    I don't have a Gariz wrist strap but can speak to the overall quality of their products being excellent .

    That is a Flat Circular Bubble Level (Approx $5) from Amazon. Fits very snug so no problem with falling out.

    It's great for use on a monopod or a tripod.... especially on tripods when using a ballhead and taking landscapes and pano pics.

    Here's a link:
