I love this
on May 22, 2013
I bought 4 of these for 3 of my cameras. Prior to this, I've also bought a similar product. That was sort of TOO long. I called that long because it extended over the battery door. At the time of buying that, I thought that was normal. However, upon receiving this, I saw that the product doesn't need to be that long, that is, long enough to partially cover the battery door. In other word, to change battery while having the hand strap on, you must first remove it.
It's not a deal breaking thing for me. But it would be nice it isn't that long, and this one fits that perfectly. I also like the padding. The padding is pretty soft, and the leather (synthetic or real I can't tell) is also soft too. The string is long enough to cover most sizes of the human hand. The good thing about having a hand strap like this is that you don't have to wear your camera around your neck. You'll definitely feel much better and LIGHTER too. I walk around with a 5DM3 and Nikon D800, both of which with their respective 70-200mm lens, and feel they're much lighter had them been around my neck instead. To me, that's the main reason why I prefer a hand strap instead of a neck strap. And this hand strap is the best there is given its prices.
