Last year, I sold all of my Canon gear and bought a Fuji X-T1. I also recently picked up the Sony a6300, and while I love my new mirrorless cameras, one of the only things I really miss about owning a DSLR was the abundance of choice when it comes to hand straps. I’m clumsy and have a humorous issue with hand-eye coordination, so having the added safety of a hand strap is something the I’d been looking for since the switch.
When I spoke to some reps for companies that made camera hand straps they explained that since the cameras varied so much in size and shape, and the mirrorless cameras were so small, it was difficult to create a product that fit the small grips. But now, Spider Holster has created a solution with their new SpiderLight Hand Strap for mirrorless cameras. They launched a Kickstarter project today, so if you’ve been looking for a hand strap for your mirrorless, be sure to enter to win one below!

More About the SpiderLight Handstrap
The SpiderLight is an adaptable hand strap made especially for mirrorless cameras, and is attached by ‘smart adapters’. The kit comes with four different adapters designed to be compatible with specific cameras: The Fuji X-T1, Olympus OM-D E-M1, E-M5, E-M1; Sony A7 and A7II; Panasonic Lumix GH4, GX8; select Nikon DSLR’s, etc.
The actual strap comes in various colors and is made of a light, flexible material, is S-curved to fit the shape of your hand, and is designed so that your hand is in the in the proper shooting position. The connector on the bottom is universal, and is made of a thin strip which allows for adjustment to the size of your hand. It connects to work seamlessly with a tripod quick-release plate and gives you access to all the camera’s controls. The SpiderLIGHT Hand Strap also comes with its own hardware in case you want to attach the strap by itself.
The expected retail price will be $40, but you can support their Kickstarter and choose from 13 package/bundle options.
