Here is a product review video of the Nordic Flash Floating Camera Strap for your digital Waterproof camera. I am using a Samsung HMX here but it works also on Your Underwater GoPro/Panasonic Lumix/Nikon COOLPIX AW110/Canon PowerShot D20/Fujifilm FinePix/Olympus Tough/Sony.

This is a handy thing to have if your going to use your camera while fishing on the lake, swimming in the Ocean and even in your backyard pool. Here is the cool thing about it - it is a 2 pack. That means you get two floats for the price of one.

At the end of the video I show me using both floats on the camera. Being in the pool industry I know one thing about water - it will destroy everything eventually - especially salt water. So if you are using this a year from now and the plastic or strap has been weakened by constantly being in water and it snaps while you are swimming in Lake Baikal in Siberia Russia your camera will sink 1,637 Meters or 5,369 feet (deepest lake on Earth). But wait, you had two floats holding your camera so all is well Comrade ;)

That is one of the major complaints I was reading about these floating straps - but the Nordic Flash solves this problem by giving you two floating straps. Very nice.

The Nordic Strap is very comfortable while on your wrist and the strap has good slack so you can shot videos or photos while the camera is strapped on. The color is bright enough to see from very far away and it floats very well with the camera attached if it were to come off your wrist. But it fits on your wrist very snug.

Did I mention it is a 2 pack? Excellent product.

Oh, I received this product for free for a review on my YouTube Channel - but I thought I should post a review here also.

I bought this to ensure my Sony Action Cam doesn't drown in Bermuda. It did its job.

I went and looped it through itself and then to the end of my retractable camera rod, tossed it into the Atlantic Ocean, and there it is!....floating! It's lightweight, portable, easy to attach and easy to wrap around the wrist. It's soft, has no smell, and can be seen far off into the distance.

A MUST HAVE FOR UNDERWATER CAMERAS.

I ordered this Nordic Flash for my GoPro Here3+ Black edition. As soon as I received it I was eager to give it a try. I attached it to what I think will be the heaviest configuration that I use to see it if would work. I fastened it to my Hero3+, Battery BacPac, GoPro 3-way mount in the waterproof case and dumped it into my swimming pool. This configuration weighed a whopping 14.6 ounces, well above the 7 or 8 ounces recommended by the manufacturer. One float was able to suspended this in the water for well over 1/2 hour. It would have gone longer, but I took it out of the water after 1/2 hr. If I was in the open ocean I think I would be safe and attach 2 floats to this rig, but I feel confident that I could rescue my GoPro with only the single float attached.

I 100% recommend this camera saving device, you can't go wrong! I have $450.00 worth of equipment attached to this Nordic Flash float. It sure would be painful to lose it all in the water!

I used this camera float on my new Nikon COOLPIX AW120. It worked great! The strap fit easily on my wrist, but I didn't have to worry about it slipping off. The float easily kept my camera from sinking both in the ocean and in the pool. The bring yellow color was easy to spot in the water as at least half of the float stayed above the surface of the water. The float dried very quickly once out of the water. It never became saturated or water logged. I would definitely recommend this camera float. So glad I purchased this one over the others I researched/considered!

This is a nice product and quality is great. The floats are well made, light and feel comfortable on the wrist. The yellow color is bright and they are large enough that I think they will be very easy to spot floating in the water if my camera should get away from me.

Update: My camera actually did get away from me on my recent trip to the Caribbean, far away from me while stand up paddle boarding in choppy water and I was able to easily see the float bobbing in the choppy surf. I had my GoPro suction cupped to the bottom of my board and it came loose. The float actually supported the camera and the suction cup mount without trouble (I had tested it in the pool beforehand). Also, the strap is large enough that if you have it around your wrist it is snug and comfortable, but the lanyard allows you to comfortably hold the camera in your hand. Worked great for snorkeling.
I am very pleased with this product.

First of all, let me say a bit about Henrik. He is on the ball and if you need your straps sooner than Amazon will deliver he can take care of you. Seriously great customer service!

Second, the straps really do work well for my camera - a simple point and shoot that weighs about 4.5 oz. I tested them in a full bucket and they floated the camera just fine. Against all the other options I looked at -- Chums, Olympus, and Nikon -- these seemed to be the best for the price of two.

I'm glad I ordered these.

For many years, my passion was underwater photography. At the time I gave it up for health reasons a few years ago, my main rig was a DSLR in a cast aluminum underwater housing. For a backup, I took a compact Canon G-10 camera in a Canon underwater housing. Fortunately I never had to use the backup, but I did dive with it occasionally, and it was also great for snorkeling. The Canon rig had a slight negative buoyancy, so the floating camera straps would have ensured that it would float to the surface if it came loose from my hand or I had to release it.

I imagine, though, that most people who buy the camera floats will use them on waterproof compact cameras that need no waterproof housing, and they appear to be ideal for that purpose. They look to be well made and durable enough to last. They're easy to attach to a camera, and with the quick release, they can be popped loose in a second if need be. With a heavier camera, it might be necessary to attach both floats, although I've seen a few underwater cameras, and I think one float would be sufficient in many cases (but use both for added peace of mind, if you like). And with the bright yellow color, if your camera is floating on the surface, it should be easy to spot.

 This is a must have for anyone who uses a camera in the water. If you get hit by a big wave or someone knocks into you and your camera drops in the water, good luck finding it. That is why this camera float is so great and innovative. When you put this on the camera, it will float if you drop or lose it in the water. It is also very brightly colored for easy spotting.

Watch my review video for a more in-depth look at the product.

Great quality, fast shipping. Performs as needed and appears to be of solid construction. The first float I had, the stitching came apart where the camera hooks to the float. A lot of good that does to save your camera from sinking. This float has two rows of stitching at this connection. Float held my Nikon perfectly.

Hi,
This camera float seems great. Since it is winter, I haven't actually tried it yet in water. The item shipped promptly with an enclosed note from the manufacturer. Later I received an email from the manufacturer to make sure that I was happy with my purchase. This company stands behind their products.
