Works very well, easy to see.
R. Stewart
It is very good, however, I wish it was a little smaller, or could be tightened because it is too big to stay around my wrist.
J. Zammit
Worked great and it had no problem floating the Olympus TG-2 camera.

I took this with me on a sailing / snorkeling trip to the Virgin Islands recently. It easily attached to the Olympus Stylus Tough 8000 and kept it afloat when I took it into the water. I read the other reviews that said the strap would not keep the 1030sw afloat in fresh water. So I tested the strap with the 8000 in a bucket of tap water. It floated just fine.

The flotation is not strong. So I would expect a strong current (as in white water rafting or kayaking) could pull it under for some period of time. But I had no trouble snorkeling or swimming with it in the waves and low surf.

The quick release on the strap is handy if you attach the floating strap onto, or in addition to the strap that comes with the camera. This allows you to easily detach the floating strap and stuff the camera into your pocket without a big red pillow hanging out of your pants or shirt. This leaves the camera's original wrist strap attached so you can still use that when on dry land.

The floating strap is too big for my wrist (I'm 5'll", 160 lbs). But I easily slid it up to my biceps where it stayed put (the strap has an adjustable button) and allowed me to swim with both hands free.

The floating strap is very lightweight, takes up little room when packing, dries quickly, and held up well in the salt water and sun of the Caribbean.

Overall it worked very well and kept me from worrying about dropping the camera into water that exceeded the 33 ft. maximum depth on the 8000.

This strap is a perfect companion to the Canon D-10 waterproof camera. I have tested the buoyancy of the strap in an 8 foot deep pool with a large amount heavy agitation (other swimmers and the pool pump cycling)...it took about 5 second from the time of release to the time is broke the surface...The bright red color is a nice bright contrast making it easier to see. A small investment to save a great camera...well worth the purchase price...

I was a little apprehensive about buying this thing after reading so many mixed reviews about whether it actually floats or not. I decided to get it rather than getting another brand because I have the olympus stylus tough camera (which rocks, btw) and I figured if the product olympus advertises on its own website as an accessory for that camera failed and I lost the camera because of that failure I'd have a pretty good beef with Olympus. Well, I've taken the camera on numerous trips-- snorkeling in Hawaii, cave diving in Mexico, all sorts of pools, sandy water, choppy water, murky water...all no problem! My float did the job well and kept my camera floating at all times. The stylus tough camera is really cool, you can take it anywhere (throw it in the sand, snow, whatever), I take it skiing a lot and I leave the floatation wrist strap on in the snow just in case the camera gets buried. While it doesn't "float" in the snow, it's so bright it does ensure that the camera doesn't get lost in the snow.

Recently, however, the tiny piece that connects the flotation strap to the camera broke (the string part that attaches to the camera and that you connect the float strap to). I looked at the Olympus website to see if I could buy that tiny piece rather than having to buy a whole new float-strap. I didn't see it advertised on the website so I called Olympus up to tell them about my problem. They don't sell that tiny piece separate from the wrist strap (which is lame, the flotation device is just fine, just the little 2 cent connector piece is broken). The woman asked me if I bought the accessory from them, I couldn't remember and she asked for my phone number to look it up. They didn't have me listed which is when I remembered I bought it from Amazon instead. So what did they do with me?

I have been a fan of the Stylus Tough series. I had a 770 SW then bought a 1030 SW -- I use them for skiing, snorkeling and kayaking. I bought this "float" strap and tested it before going out in my kayak. It seemed to have just enough flotation to support the camera. While out on a river with gentle current I tossed the camera to a friend in a kayak about 8 feet away. The camera with float attached hit the water, hung just below the surface for a moment and then, bizarrely, sank! The water was murky and there was enough of a current the camera was lost. I contacted Olympus, complaining that calling this item a float was misleading to say the least. They would not replace the camera but only offered a small discount on a replacement. They should be honest and call it something else -- either it floats or it doesn't and it my case it didn't

This works ok, it made it so my camera didnt sink to the bottom of a lake :). The only problem I noticed is that it works kind of like a sponge. If it fills up with air, it floats. If it is squeezed under water, it will suck in the water and (slowly) sink. I would think with the godawful size that it wouldn't be just a sponge.

Bring it back above water, squeeze the water out, and let it fill with air, and it works again. Pretty goofy the way it works, but it's better than nothing.

Just received the float band from Amazon directly and I am disappointed. It came in Olympus packaging that looked a little strange (poor printing) and the item does not look like the one in the photos. Mine has no Olympus logos on it and it has only 4 segments to the float band instead of 5 in the pictures and looks a little rough and ready. It also has a little fabric hook on the back - not sure what it is for?

I would have sent it back except I was going on vacation and figured for the money a copy float band will do just as well as an original float band - provided it floats that is!

Uploaded a video of the item I received and re3member this was from Amazon directly and not from another supplier or even fulfilled by amazon.
