    Camera Clip/Lanyard

    I just got hold a D2000 strobe, INON AD mount and grip for my Fiji F11, and now Camera isn't as light as it use to be.

    What type lanyards or clips do people use to secure their camera when not taking picture (like when ascending or decending)

    Any clip lanyard that snugs up tight to the D-ring when you don't need it, and, when unclipped, has enough lengh to be usable, is the correct clip/lanyard for you. Try it.
    Basicly any other them work fine. Don't let the marketing sway you.

    Cetacea makes a pretty nice coiled-lanyard with a plastic buckle and metal clip that would probably work for you and does keep the camera close to you, but can be released while still secure for when you want to take pictures.

    3/4 of the Earth are covered by water and 1/4 by land. Clearly God intended us to spend 3 times as much time fishing and diving than mowing the lawn. - Wiz

    Avoid clips and lanyards. I attached a snap-bolt with caveline and clip it to my left-shoulder D-ring...a simple solution that is not an entanglement hazard.

    Yes! You're GOING TO DIE if you use a clip and a lanyard in the water!

    yes...yes you are. A horrible, lingering, suffocating death. And none will mourn your passing. Why?

    Because you USED A CLIP.

    I use this one clipped to my Rig chest strap. Mine is black with a brass snap bolt. It works great and has never gotten tangled. When freediving, I use it as a lanyard by slipping the coil over my wrist.

    Coil lanyard with a bolt snap on one end and whatever attachment works best for your rig on the other. My rig:

    If coil lanyards killed, there would be a LOT of dead photographers out there.

    Coil lanyard is really the best way to go for any camera with a strobe.
