While walking and holding my camera the remote cord slip from my hand to the ground. Do you have a trick to tie the other end of the remote to the camera that would be easy to untied once you need it?

Just a thought..........attach an elastic band to the camera strap, near the bracket. Slip the remote through the elastic band, it should stay where it is put and is ready for use.

I'm most likely to use the remote when shooting tripod-mounted, so I've been meaning to use some velcro so that I can attach the remote to an upper tripod leg section. The band around the strap is a pretty good idea except that I usually remove the strap when I'm not shooting handheld (gotta love the quick-release connectors on the OpTech straps).

One thing I just found, that plastic pressure ring with the tools that is provided by the tripod manufacturer there a space to put the wire of the remote and after that tie the end of the remote with an elastic above that ring.

I use velcro for everything, including for the lens cap to stick to my camera back. If you place it on the ground, you're gonna walk away and forget it. Put velcro on your remote and it'll stay in place. The new velcros aren't that rough on the rough side.

Thank you Sandi, they sell some at Lee Valley in 30 feets roll for the garden, i don't know if it's the right kind to use.
