Customer Reviews

Voila, float immediately and was surprised by such a little strap can give so much buoyancy.
Rlam
The Pentax Optio Floating Wrist Strap is a "Life Vest for Cameras" The bright colors make it easy to spot and retrieve when accidents happen.
Gary Trotter
It's easy to slip on to your hand and tighten, and floats our camera perfectly when we didn't want to have it on our hand.

I bought this to use with my Sanyo Xacti VPC-E2 Digital Camcorder and 8 MP Digital Camera (Blue). The strap is sufficiently buoyant that even with the camera attached it still floats at the surface. If I wanted to play with my daughter I could take the thing off my wrist and set it off to the side. When I wanted to take some pictures a few minutes later it was still there, floating patiently, waiting for me. (Wish I could say the same for my daughter but she's 11 months old and sinks like a rock.)

The strap also has a quick disconnect feature. It allows you to easily disconnect the camera and supplied short cord from the wrist strap. However, it is very diffucult to reconnect it without help. (It's easy to uncouple but difficult to reconnect with one hand.)

UPDATE: It's a year later and I just got back from a beach/pool vacation. The wrist strap and Sanyo camera are still working fine. With continued use I've come to appreciate the bright yellow color of this wrist strap. It not only makes it easy to spot my camera floating in the pool but also in my suitcase or sitting someplace in the hotel room. Saddly, my daughter, now almost two, still sinks like a rock unless she's wearing her Swimways Soft Swimmies (Colors May Vary).

All kidding aside, for < $10 this is a "must have" addition for any waterproof camera.

UPDATE: Another 2 1/2 years have gone by and we're packing to head to the beach.

I bought this strap for my Pentax W60 so that I could feel a little bit better about taking the camera white water rafting regularly. The waterproof camera is amazing and being able to strap it on with a floating strap is even better! It was nice having my camera out to catch the wildlife along the river without having to take it out of case. It did indeed float with my camera attached when I tested it out on a relatively calm portion of river. I'm very glad I bought this strap.

I bought this for my Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS2 and my trip to the Carribean.

I almost didn't get a floating strap, but I'm glad I did. In the ocean, there is so much going on, and I was glad that this had a wrist strap that could securely hold the camera on my wrist. When they dropped us in the deep water on our snorkeling tour, I was glad I didn't have to worry about my camera because waves were knocking me around and I was still adjusting my snorkel gear, etc.

In the calm waters, I tested to make sure my Lumix camera would float, and it did with this strap.

I think it's worth a few bucks to make sure your camera doesn't sink to the bottom of the ocean.

First time out with my new waterproof Pentax camera and I didn't want to take any chances of losing it while snorkeling. Thought this strap would be just the answer. Easy to attach to the camera and easy to get on and off my wrist. even thought I never tested to see just how long or far I'd allow it to get away from me. It sure gave me extra extra confidence that I wouldn't and didn't lose it. Good product.

We have used this strap in the pool with our Canon D10. Snaps right on the camera perfectly. It's not too cumbersome, fits around my smaller wrist and works perfectly. The camera was always floating whenever we put it down to play around in the pool, even when the kids would create quite a few waves in the water. The pictures submitted by Tom D. portray accurately how ours worked with the D10 attached. We trust it and will be taking it with us when we snorkel in Hawaii for our vacation this year!

The Pentax Floating Wrist Strap lives up to its description. Very good quality for the price. It definitely has enough flotation for the Pentax "W" series of waterproof cameras.

I bought this strap to keep my new canon DC10 afloat. It fits into a jacket pocket and a camera bag without being detached, and while I haven't float tested it yet, I'm pretty sure it has enough buoyancy to keep my camera on the surface of the water. Fits snugly on the wrist when tightened, but when loose functions like a any other strap, but more bulky.

The Strap floated the Lumix DMC TS2. I could not get the clip to detach unintentionally. Even so, I used the wrist cord supplied with the camera as well.

Very nice product.
