great idea!

Once in a while, you buy little inexpensive accessories that change your (photo) life in better. This grip is incredible light, very well made and it distribute the camera weight evenly. If you need a fast access to your camera or to a second body and you want to give some relief to your neck this is a smart solution.

Not exactly what I was looking for

By

from Tampa, FL  -  Professional

I was looking for something to help carry an extra body. Using this holder for a pro size body (Nikon D3S) doesn't work very well.

Nice camera holder

By

Nice helper for weddings, no pressure on the shoulder carring the heavy 70-200 2.8 lens, just leave it on my belt ...

The leash was defective

By

from Washington DC  -  Photo Enthusiast

When I bought this the leash was defective, Adorama is a great store and they tried to help me, but they don't sell the leash separate and they wanted me to send the whole thing back. I guess they could of opened one up and sent me the leash and then got a refund the manufacturer. Anyhow I needed to use it right now and I used it without the leash, but the whole time I worried that I would drop my camera. I haven't used it again, the manufacturer should sell the leash separate so if you have more than one camera you can use it on the other camera without taking it off the camera it's on.

Solid attachment to body

By

from Atlanta Metro  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is easy to use and fits snug to the body. Use of straps to hold a camera causes the camera to swing. When outdoors climbing around brush, rocks I do not concern myself with my camera swinging hitting objects. When I am crawling under limbs or brush to get in to position it does not hit the ground. It stays on my hip, or I put it in front of me or behind me. It is not as quick to grab a shot as using a Black Rapid strap, however it is not swinging banging in to items.

LOVE THIS THING!

By

from MD  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Straps suck. End of story. The b-grip allows you to carry your camera on your belt. However I suggest it being a second belt. Not the one for your pants. It is very secure. It is very awkward at first. But in about 10 minutes you can figure out how it works best for you. Get a second belt to use this with. This will allow you to move it around your waist as you need. At times like in a crowd it is good to have it directly in front, when walking it is best at the side. And when making adjustments to lights etc..etc... it is good to have it in the back out of the way. You cant move it like that with it stuck between 2 belt loops. And when buying a belt for it. Try to get one that fills the belt slots. One that is narrower will let it twist a bit. It is not a bad thing. but takes a extra second to locate the release lever. It is strong. I carry a gripped 50D with a 24-70 2.8, and at times a 70-200 2.8 with no fear of it falling out. Your first try I will bet you will not be able to take the camera off the clip. It is a 2-in-1 move process. Once you know how to do it it is second nature. But the 2-move keeps it from falling out by accident. I have never had it even hint at falling out. So much so I took off the safty cord/clip. The down sides.... It is a 2 handed operation to take it off AND put it on. One hand for the camera, one hand for the clip lever. There is no way to do either with only one hand. So any quick grab shots when you happen to have stuff in one hand will never happen. And... the mount for the camera does like to come loose. I keep a set of mini pliers in my bag to install and remove the mount. It does not need so be super tight. But it does need to be about 1/4 turn tighter than I can do by hand to not worry about it coming off. I love this thing! I just wish they sold extra mounts to keep on other bodies so I don't have to move the one all the time.

Well worth the price

By

from Atlanta Metro  -  Photo Enthusiast

While out in the brush crawling around the camera is not swinging around me. This keeps hands free to get into position, such as climbing, jumping running and the like. It is then easy to pop the camera off the holder making the shot. Because the camera is not swinging around the body one can squat down, without the camera hitting the ground.

Great great product

By

from Redonod Beach, Ca  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This product is great! I've used it for 9 full days of shooting and it worked very well. The camera is stable and doesn't swing around as it would with a strap. The B-Grip also provides a stable support if I take the whole rig off and set it down. I was able to shoot, move large equipment and then shoot again just by swinging the grip/camera around out of the way. My only qualms are that I wish it has build a little heavier duty for the price and I haven't figured out a good safety hand strap yet. It's very useful and the first one that I've seen of it's kind. It does look a little dorky... but hey we're photographers what do you expect.

What an AWESOME idea!

By

from Helena, MT  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is the best idea ever! I hate camera straps so the B-Grip was just the ticket for me! Easy access to my camera at a moments notice! VERY functional and built well! I can finally "wear" my DSLR!

JOHN S  I have the belt for this as well. It is a very sturdy nylon belt with a secure locking buckle system. I have used this while hiking with a telephoto zoom lens on the camera. Very stable. Easy release of camera for taking pictures.
