Another consideration is the size of the connecting ribbon cord to the camcorder or camera. This braided cord is substantial, about 3/8" x 1/8", not a weak link in the strap assembly. The negative side of this is its size is just big enough not to fit through my camera's strap loop. I have cut down a plastic electrical cable loop to use as an interface between the camera's loop and the braided cord. The plastic cable loop has holes for a screw that I used to attach the cord. The cable loop is white so I dyed it black with fabric dye. Functions well and looks very good.
Overall, the strap provides a good, non-slip feel. It's elastic wristband is comfortable and has a sliding, plastic adjustment to tighten the strap for smaller wrists.
During warmer weather the strap makes my wrist sweat. The inside of the strap gets wet, but dries quickly. I have used this camera a lot during warm weather, sweated a lot onto it, but it doesn't stink. I could wash it.
The look is very utilitarian. The photo is accurate.
My only concern is the plastic clip that attaches the neoprene wrist strap to the lanyard portion secured to the camera. It looks sturdy enough, and hasn't given any indication that it's going to come loose, but given how easy it is to get your hand into and out of the wrist strap, it seems like the inclusion of this clip doesn't add enough value to the product to justify the loss of peace of mind.
If you were going to be switching between a neck strap and this wrist strap, the plastic clip would probably make that process quick and easy, but if, like me, you're only interested in securing your camera with a wrist strap, the clip feels unnecessary.
The strap material is elastic neoprene. You can close down the strap to make it tighter around your wrist but I really don't see the need to adjust as it's already comfortably tight enough.
I also considered getting one of those slr grips that screws into the tripod socket and wraps around the top of your hand but when I thought about it, for the camera to be safe from accidents you always had to have it glued to your hand whereas with this wrist strap, you can hold the camera in a more free and loose kind of way with the peace of mind of knowing that the strap will save your camera from a fall if your hand decides to let go.
Price is good. I wish it came in more exciting colors and wild prints though.
Update: There's a difference between a "handstrap" and a "wriststrap".Read more ›
The wrist strap feels secure and fit snugly around my wrist.The clasp, which is of the kind commonly found on bags and packs these days, feels secure. The advantage is that it allows you to quickly detach the wrist strap if you have need to. The disadvantage is that it would be possible - not easily so - to accidentally release the clasp.
The elastic loop that is supposed to thread through the eyelet of the camera is a bear, very difficult to get through. It is about 3/16ths of an inch wide. I bought a wrist strap so I could alternate with the neck strap. Not with this one. There isn't room on my LX5 for both loops, which definitely limits the usefulness to me.
Unless your camera has large eyelets or you want to use only the hand strap, I suggest you scrutinize this model closely and also consider the alternatives.

It works perfect. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it can make your wrist feel warm and sweaty in the summer time. Other than that, I would strongly recommend it.Published 6 days ago by GG
