    Bear with me as i try to explain the kidn of strap I want;

    Most DSLR's come with the standard neck strap that attach from the left and right top corners of a camera.

    What Im looking for is to run a "hand" strap, on that attaches at the top right and bottom right of the camera body. Allowing you to strap the camera to your right hand.

    Many studio photographers use them, and cameras like the D3, and D3x with built in grips have the loop that allow you to attach a strap in such a manner.

    Im trying to do this with a D90 and wondering what my options are, if there even are any. I hate wearing the strap around my neck, but its nice to have something keeping the camera snug in your hand especially with heavier lenses shooting handheld.

    I dont have a MB-D80 battery grip for the D90 yet, though looking at pictures of it in detail dont look like it has the built in fastening loop that I would need.

    Any ideas?


    i think the D200's came with them in the box?
