I loved this strap! I had such a bad experience with the Zeikos floating strap. In fact, I wrote a very helpful review on it...be sure to read it before deciding on a strap for your camera. Hopefully, you will choose the Olympus strap instead. I chose the Zeikos..twice, and it defected on me...twice. You do get what you paid for and even though the Olympus was only a few bucks more, it was well worth it. It does what you expect it to...floats, holds firm, keeps your camera safe, plus I liked the cute design. The only problem...lol...all my guy friends would like to throw it around the pool just to see it bob and have fun with it. This is definitely the best floaty strap out there! A good buy!

This product does what it claims. I own a Sony TX5 waterproof camera (love that too) and I feel safe using it kayaking. However, I have small wrists and wish it tightened down just a bit more. BEWARE using sunscreen and bug spray: I ended up with a colorful "tattoo" from the paint wearing off the inside of the float strap onto my arm. I was using spray on Coppertone and Deet bug spray. Must be a toxic combo for this product.

I have to start this review by saying that the vendor (Beach Camera) was outstanding!!!! I can't believe how quickly the item traveled across the country! And with free shipping, this is cheap insurance for my camera since I often use it in and around water.

As for the wrist strap itself - it looks to be well made and I like the visibility it has in the water. I think it will do the job, but, one caution - I have small hands and wrists and this strap cannot adjust small enough to prevent it from easily slipping off my wrist. I got creative and have a modified fix, but if I were using it while snorkeling or in white water, I would still attach a safety cord to it. Also, the little clippy thing that is supposed to allow you to release the camera from the wrist strap easily, is very stiff; I haven't been able to get it to release yet. I'm guessing I will eventually find a way to release it and will be able to soften it up a bit.

All that said, I would definitely buy from Beach Camera again, and, even given the short-comings of the product, would likely, all things considered, choose this product over other similar products.

Bought this for a trip to Australia. It worked well to keep my camera safe while we were snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef- it is big enough to float the Tough line of point and shoot cameras.

Unfortunately, that was also the downside. It's HUGE- there's no way you could use it as a regular camera strap. The picture really doesn't do it justice. It's just so big. Even while snorkeling, it was quite bulky, and can't be made small enough for the average woman to wear it on her wrist. I'm of pretty average build and I had to push it almost to my elbow to make it secure. Someone very slender or a child would probably be able to fit it on their upper arm. It fit more snugly on my boyfriend's wrist, but it's still crazy bulky- you're definitely aware you have it on at all times. Good for keeping the camera safe, not great for casual fun in the surf.

I recommend it with the caveat that you should only be expecting to use it when you're actually in/on the water- for land activities, you will definitely want a different strap to keep the camera more secure and your arm comfortable.

I beleive its the same as the orange Olympus float strape, it just has the fancy Island theme on It. The clip seems to be very durable and strong and not easy at all to come apart when pulled. Price was $6.99 and free shipping so I realy couldn't pass It up. I'm useing the strap with an FujiFilm Finpix WP, I was going to op for a cheaper brand that Is sold here, but after reading alot of mix reveiws I decided to spend the extra dollar or two and get a reputable brand.

It looks just like the photo. It's a bit bulky though and so I will only use it on occasion. It does do what it is meant to though and is easy to spot though due to is size it isn't going to fall off your arm. Unless you have really small wrists.

It has a toggle lock though which makes it easy to take the band off when you don't need it.

I love the pattern, it serves it's function perfectly.
A side note: the little plastic dohickey that tightens and loosens the strap rattles when you pick it up. I am unable to hear it's rattle, and neither can my partner, but our dog goes absolutly bonkers. Running around barking, almost hysterical every time I pick it up. It doesn't detract from the item, it is only ever picked up and packed when in the house and like I said, I really can't hear it. But an interesting side note. I'd still have purchased it if I had known this before hand, but maybe this will explain your dog's actions!

I really like this camera float. I used it with my Panasonic TS10 underwater point and shoot camera. This float did the job and was very cute while doing it. I also used it while sightseeing because the camera felt more secure on my wrist. Great product!
