very useful for tired hands
Let me start by saying i own this strap, but i did not buy it here. i used this strap all the time when i started out, my finger muscles were not ready to hold an SLR for 6 hours straight at a wedding, and they were cramping up. An event shooter with a camera hanging around his neck is ridiculous, you need two hands to bring camera up, it bumps your chest, etc. i never use a camera with the supplied strap around my neck. using this i could let my camera hang on my wrist when i wasnt shooting, and all i had to do was grip the camera to pick it back up for shooting. Eventually my finger muscles grew accustomed and I didn't need this any more. Fast forward 3 years, I cut the tip off my right middle finger. It was BAD. There was a big bandage. Pressure hurt my finger. I couldn't hold my camera! I go into my closet, find my trusty old wrist strap and bang, I am using my camera pain free, without putting pressure on my finger. The finger healed, I took it off. So, for the price, worth owning.
Works for me.
Wish it had a cam lock for fast adjustment. I don't run the strap through the loop on the camera (only through loop on plate provided) because it was not comfortable. I use this hand strap more like a padded wrist strap that rides on my wrist, and it is more secure on my wrist than riding on top of my hand. When adjusted properly, it makes my camera feel solid in my hand. Ultimately, it works for me and I like it.
Good fit for my Nex 5N
I have had my Nex 5N for about 4 months now. I never use the included neck strap and was holding the camera like I would my iphone. I have been shopping for a hand strap for a while but most I've tried were too big for the Nex 5N. This one is on the smallish side and a good fit.
4-star because the price was higher than competitor's.
Great Strap, well built!
I'm using these on Nikon cameras, not as pictured but as a hand-strap. Easily convertable by changing the way the strap attaches. Works GREAT! I love that the screw socket for adding a tripod mount is positioned to be in the center of the camera.
