I bought htis accessory because I do not fancy pretty much the neckstrap. I hate to feel my neck aching after a while due to the weight of my 10D plus battery grip and lens. I rather to carry it in my hand instead. So I thought this handstrap would give me the extra safety feel I was needing.

After receiving it I noticed it is only intended to be used with "grand cameras" , like the EOS 1 series (film or digital) or to those other series cameras that already have a battery grip attached to them. Fortunately that's my case in which I always carry my 10D with its BG-ED3. I tell this since a 10D, 20D, DRebel or 350D body does not have a strap eyelet on its base. Only their compatible battery grip has it.

So be aware that this nice, safe and comfortable accessory could not be attached to your prosumer camera if you don't have the corresponding BG.

My opinion will probably differ from other reviewers.

This strap works well IF you have the extended battery pack installed on the camera.

As to be expected, it is quality and would be handy for those who like to keep their camera in their hand ready for action shots.

Personally, I went back to the neck strap because, if using the hand strap, the camera is tied to your hand and that hand is unusable for much of anything else without putting the camera down. If you're out roaming around, the neck strap frees your hands up, reducing your fear of dropping the camera, eliminates the possibility of setting it down for a second and having it disappear and, with the neck strap, the camera is readily available.

I have to give it a 5 star due to the fact that it does exactly what it was designed to do and quality made.

I wouldn't be without this. When I first bought the 20d it was my first digital SLR and I spent a few weeks adding and removing the battery grip and this strap. In the end I settled for using both and wouldn't have it any other way. With the battery grip and hand strap in place I find the camera much more secure and comfortable to hold. That's all there is to it, that's what it does and it does it well.

On the down side, and it's a small and transient down side, actually fitting it to the camera and getting it adjusted to the exact right length for your hand is a bit fiddly and you'd sort of expect it to be insecure. I think the trick, security wise, is to make sure the bottom strap goes through the center buckle first, then it is locked in by the top strap which is already held securely at the junction with the neck strap (if used). I also don't like the attachment to the neck strap, I don't like having a fairly sharp edged piece of metal where it can rub against the chasis of the camera in normal use.

I use this on a 20d which typically has a 24-200 or 80-400 lens attached. You can only use this if you also use the battery grip, or buy a third party plate which attaches to the tripod mount and provides the lower mounting location. But since I always use the battery grip I don't have an issue.

If Canon read this, you could do with a better solution for the attachment and adjustment on an accessory of this price, you normally pay close attention to detail and it's a bit lacking here.

I use my 30D very often. I never felt a need to buy the accessory battery grip, as it added weight, and made the package larger, while the standard battery offers plenty of capacity.

That changed when I used a 30D with the battery grip, and hand strap installed. You need the battery grip in order to mount the hand strap, and the difference in grip feel, and hand fatigue is incredible. With the grip/strap combo installed, I can "one hand" the camera in secure fashion all day long, and feel far more secure than with the standard body sporting a neck strap.

I resisted the additional size of the battery grip since day one, but since the hand strap will only work if the battery grip is installed, I bought it, and have no regrets. The combination is unbeatable for utility and comfort.

I originally bought this for my 20D with the BG-E2 batterygrip and when it arrived found that no instructions on how to safely attach it were included. After a bit of googeling I found those (in the MKIIN manual downloadable from Canons web site) and it felt pretty secure. It certainly helps when you are using larger lenses and its good value for the money. I have now upgraded to a MKIIN and have moved the strap to that body. If you find it hard to use the main dial you have probably tightened the strap too much.

I owned the Canon EOS 1-d, which I sold to obtain the "latest-greatest" EOS 1-d Mark II. My first model(1-d)came with this handstrap, and I found it to be VERY, VERY useful, and incrediby imporant me, being an action-sports photogropher-

Imagine my dismay and anoyance at discovering that this item which was so useful and,(IMHO)absolutely necessary as my wonderful handstrap (WHICH WAS INCLUDED in the previous model)..... had been left out of the "newer and so much improved" version.

I've called and emailed Canon repeatedly(WHICH I STRONGLY SUGGEST ANY/EVERYONE DO)trying to bring attention to this issue, which, to me, is unexpected, and a completly unacceptable discrepancy.

Then consider the 30 plus dollars that Canon is TRYING to charge for it, and well here I go, off to my old fateful Amazon to GET ME ONE !! Actually, its from Adorama, and only about 20 bucks, instead.

As for my review of the strap itself, if you haven't yet gathered; Considering the cameras weight, and me constantly running up and down dirt hills chasing motocross racers and the like, I found it literally, indespensible!

Highly recomended !!
