Works Great

I have this strap on 3 different cameras. I bought my first one to keep the camera secure when not using a neck strap.

I have this strap on 3 different cameras. I bought my first one to keep the camera secure when not using a neck strap. What I found out is that it's even better at taking the load off your hand during a prolonged walk. You don't have to grip the camera much, so your hand can relax. With your palm pointed down the strap rests on the back of your hand. I find the wrist/arm muscles that support the camera this way don't tire as easily as the hand/wrist muscles that support the camera without the strap. Good for taking a load off during a walk-around. The strap does take some effort to install the first time you do it. For non-pro camera bodies, the instructions are found with the battery grip instructions and are not included in the hand strap packaging.

Nice product, impossible to attach

Ordered expecting this to be a better solution than the bulky neck strap that comes with the Rebel XSi. Will not attach unless you are using a battery grip.

A great change from a neck strap !

By

from The Colony, TX.  -  Photo Enthusiast

I had used a neck strap for SO MANY yrs. and I got tired of it. So changing over to the hand strap really helped. I have used the hand strap by itself & also with the neck strap & also with a "sling/swing" shoulder strap set-up. Either one of those 3 set-ups you use, the hand strap just gives you a more secure feeling when handling your Dslr ! I have mine on a Canon 50d with a Canon extended battery grip and it works great !

Got to have one

If you are tired of wearing a neck strap this is the item to have. It will never come off your hand if used right.

great item with battery grip

By

from Jacksonville, Florida  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

If you have a battery grip, you might really want to think about this. I love that I have one and came with metal buckle "link" that alowed me to use my neck strap at the same time.

It is nice to have

By

from OMAN  -  Professional

I wanted a strap that does not tangle or swing while I mount the camera on tripod. It is a nice strap, but if you want to handhold your camera while walking, it may be better to have a neck strap. This one does not come in my way when using my camera on tripod..

LOVE using my hand strap

By

from Austin, TX  -  Pro Photographer

I loved this strap and find myself using it more and more. It was difficult to attach but now that I have gotten the hang of it it's not so bad.

Everyone needs one...

By

from Hamilton, OH  -  Semi-pro Photographer

A great addition for someone with a grip. It really allows the hand to relax which is very important when shooting for more than an hour.

i like this product

By

from Huntington New York  -  Photo Enthusiast

i don't use a neck strap but the spider holster and the canon E-1 hand strap comes in very handy ( no pun intended). the hand strap helps me secure my camera when i remove it from the spider holster.
