High Quality Strap for Your Point and Shoot Camera
on October 21, 2009
Why doesn't every camera come with a strap like this? Actually, my original Canon S80 did, but, sadly, we don't see this style very prevalent amongst today's cameras. In fact, if you do some checking, you might find, as I did, that this is one of the ONLY handstraps for a point and shoot camera that contains the all important slider piece which allows you to tighten the strap onto your wrist so that the strap (and the camera) doesn't slide off your hand at the first moment you aren't paying attention.
Once you use a design like this, you'll scratch your head in incredulity as to why it is not "standard issue" for all wrist straps. The problem with the wrist strap, of course, is that it slides off your hand almost as easily as it slides on, with the potential result being a dropped camera. With the inclusion of the 1 cent slider on the strap, you are able to slide the strap on and then more securely affix the strap to your wrist, making for a better shooting experience and a great deal more measure of security.
Grab one or two of these while they are still available. Why four stars instead of five? Well, because (and I'm being picky here) the strap is not flat (it uses a standard round rope-style format). The flat style is a bit more comfortable over the long term, and hence, the deduction of one star. However, the ability to secure strap to your hand with the slider is a much more important factor. Highly recommended.
