Good item, not the same brand.
on November 1, 2012
This is a review of the 3 item bundle (DualGRIP Steady Shot Wrist Strap for Canon cameras, Microfiber cleaning cloth and Airbrush) sold by Accessory Genie.
The first thing I noticed upon receiving this item, as other reviewers have noted, is that this is NOT a DualGRIP brand product, but rather Vivitar. That being said, I am still very happy with this product. It seems sturdy enough since I have used it so far, the material is comfortable and doesn't bother my hand when I have it tightened up to grip the camera. Probably the worst flaw I have seen so far is that the strap which attaches to the top of the camera body can get in the way sometimes; you'll have to find a way to tuck it beneath your hand or cut the strap off where you don't need it.
Having previously only used a neck strap, it is a comfortable grip and takes the weight of the camera off your neck. Though, it can be a pain if you are going to need your hands for other purposes than shooting.
As another reviewer mentioned, the wrist strap is rather large, so if you have smaller wrists it may be a little loose on you. I have small wrists and it is loose on me, however it still functions as intended and I am able to release my grip on the camera, and still have it snugly attached to my hand.
- Comfortable material.
- Gives you a firm grip to the camera.
- Safety wrist strap so you don't have to always grip the camera, you can relax when not shooting.
- Item is not the same brand as labelled (not a product flaw, but tsk tsk seller).
- Wrist strap is rather large if you have smaller wrists.
- The strap connecting to the top of the camera body can get in the way.
