Cotton Carrier 801 CHS overview

  • 1Description

The Cotton Carrier Hand Strap allows you to comfortably carry a DSLR in your hand and also connect it to a tripod via the included Arca-Swiss style quick-release plate. This quick-release plate attaches to the base of your DSLR via its 1/4"-20 threaded hole and can be easily clamped directly to a tripod. You can choose to attach another optional quick-release plate to the hand strap as well.

The Hand Strap features a touch-fastener strap which lets you quickly tighten or loosen your hand against the camera's body. For protection from scratches, a detachable rubber gasket on the hand strap lies between the quick-release plate and your camera. The Hand Strap is compatible with most DSLRs and tripods.

Can be configured with or without the rubber gasket to fit most cameras
Touch fastener strap for grip adjustment
Also compatible with most QR plates

    Cotton Carrier 801 CHS reviews

    Cotton Carrier Hand Strap is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 71.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from great if you don't like neckstraps this is a great accessory of you don't like using a neck strap. you will need to take more care but it gives you a nice tight grip on the body of your camera. I found I had to shift how I was hitting the shutter release but that was fairly easy to get used to. You may find this a more difficult adjustment to make to your grip etc. It did not come with instructions and the website offered ambiguous instructions, which was a bit of a drag although it is fairly straightforward to install. there was a one part left over that I'm not sure how to use. A metal key ring type thing which makes me slightly uneasy. I'm still getting used to it but am I'm happy with it and I think it will become a standard part of my rig over time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from hate neckstraps? then you will love this I do a lot of macro photography and I've always disliked having a neckstrap on the camera. It just got in the way. I shoot with a Canon 5d mark 2 and this hand strap gives me a feeling of security when I'm shooting handheld. I'm still able to use the camera controls yet the camera is still held firm in my grip. And the quick-release plate allows me to mount my camera to my tripod when I want to shoot that way. No swinging neck strap to catch on objects or, gasp, hang un-noticed in front of the lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hand Tight Use it on a Nikon D-7000. When I'm not using my Black Rapid shoulder strap i wanted a bit more secure grip on my camera. It gives a bit more of a mental confidence that I won't be as likely to drop it. Only negative thing is when my hand is in the grip its a bit difficult to adjust your exposure compensation button. Takes a little getting use to using the shutter release as well. But all that said I feel a little more confident about not dropping my camera with the strap on and will continue to adjust to it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Idea and Comfortable Handstrap I purchased one of these to try on a heavier dslr because I use Arca Swiss style tripod heads and I do not want to keep buying expensive plates for my cameras. It works very well and I will be ordering more. The strap feels comfortable in my hand and on my tripod I can hold the camera by the strap to make adjustments. Why has this not been thought of before?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best way to go, save your neck If you have neck or shoulder problems this is by far the best solution. I have used one on my Canon 50D for 4 years and have had no problems with it. Just bought 2 more for my new 70D & the old Rebel. I also use my cameras with the Cotton Carrier harness system. Very well made product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this strap I have 3 of these and I really like them. They are well built and comfortable on your hand. These straps make me feel more secure about holding my cameras. I am glad B&H has these! I didn't need the camera hubs that come with the other strap kit for $40. I have extra hubs from other Cotton Carrier systems which you should check out too! This stap comes with an Arca Swiss base plate which is made out of strong aluminum. So whatcha waiting for? Gettcha one!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Strap Works very well. It's easy to install. The only mildly annoying (but expected) thing is that the plate is not compatible with the Giotto's locking head, but I installed it on my plate and it works awesome.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it. The first one of these I got was included in a package deal with the waist sling. I used the waist sling right off, and didn't get around to putting this hand strap on until a couple of weeks later, but as soon as I did, I liked it. Haven't used the waist thing since the first time, but now this hand strap is permanantely attached to my camera, and I even ordered another one for my other camera. I'm pretty much a sniper.... tons of handheld shots with a large (80-400) lens, and although it's not nirvana, it does provide some significant support to my hand while I'm trying to hold the camera up and balance everything. To me, it just feels good around my hand. The one thought that kept coming back to me, though, again & again, was that the connecting straps weren't positioned right. The whole thing sat too far forward and didn't allow the freedom of mevement I needed to run the shutter button and dials on my Nikons. I kept thinking of how I could modify or make my own that would sit right on my hand. The second one I bought, though was a new design that instead of being basically a square pad, was more ergonomically designed, and appears to be more friendly with freedom of finger movement for the controls, but honestly, I haven't used it enough yet to see how it feels as far as where it sits on the back of my hand. Initial impressions are that it will be at least as good as the older style, and probably much better. For the price, I wouldn't let that question stop me from buying another one. I have four SLR's, and having one of these on every one of them wouldn't be out of the question. As an added note, When taking time photos with the camera on a tripod, or other situations, these straps really don't seem to be in the way. I also have quick connect rings on these cameras so I can attach a strap when needed. Never noticed any inconvenience to the way I use my cameras, even with the extra hardware.
