I've seen several requests around the web for info on using a grip strap the the CoolPix 990. The CoolPix has a strap tunnel that presents a challenge for mounting a strap, but I've worked out an easy way to do the trick.

I hope the illustration above is clear enough. I apologize for not showing the strap attached to the camera, but I'll have to shoot that using 35mm later on. The nylon cable tie loop is inserted to run through the strap tunnel and the "head" of the tie keeps it from pulling through. If you don't have a cable tie, use some nylon cord tied in a loop and use the knot to prevent prevent the loop from pulling through.

I use the Zing Action Strap. Op/Tech also makes a neoprene grip strap and both can be found for about $20 US. Nikon also makes a grip strap, but it's significantly more expensive.

Please let me know if you have questions. I know some folks have started using cat/dog collars for CP990 straps, but I think this will be much more comfortable and secure.
