5.0 out of 5 stars Opteka GS-2 Ergonomic Stabilizing Hand Grip Strap, February 9, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Opteka GS-2 Genuine Leather Ergonomic Stabilizing Hand Grip Strap for Digital SLR Cameras (Electronics)
Five stars for effort in solving a very difficult task. I have tried several other hand grip straps, some at three times the cost this one. This strap does resolve the common failing of the others; if the strap is tight enough to provide safe grip, you can't reach the camera controls with comfort. The triangle design and the additional wrist band work well at both needs. And the unit is well made.
The trade-off: you must snap the wrist band quick-connect into place after your hand is inserted, a one-handed operation. This is not easy. Perhaps it will get easier with practice.
The bottom line is, this configuration, once in place, is comfortable, all buttons are easily and comfortably accessed (even on the small Lumix GX1), and most importantly, the camera is safely secured to your hand.
