The Opteka GS-2 is a ergonomically designed padded grip strap made to fit most Digital SLR cameras. The GS-2 provides a secure, one hand grip to your DSLR camera, stabilizing your shot and alleviating fatigue during extended photo shoots. It attaches via the tripod mount. You may still use a tripod with the strap attached.

To have enough freedom to use the back-panel buttons, you need to set the strap pretty loose, which makes it hang awkwardly, but still secure enough that you can let go entirely and not worry about the camera falling off, but just barely.
I'm not a master of straps, so I was a little put off that there were no instructions or at least a diagram of how to weave the strap through the camera mounting point and back onto the plastic cinching gizmo. Ideally, there would be an explanation of how to find the proper fit and tightness as well.
The base screws securely into the tripod mount on the camera and has its own mount beneath, so you can leave the hand grip attached when you attach to a tripod, and in my case, I leave the quick-release plate for my tripod attached to the base of the hand grip by default.
I haven't been willing to commit to a Black Rapid type strap and found that when shooting, I tend to wind my camera strap into a makeshift hand grip anyway, so this is a step forward for sure.
It had been some time after receiving that I first tried the product, so it was too late to return. Interestingly though, it's been a couple of months and the glue is still wet. I don't know what glue it was that they used but my babies boogers would have been a much better adhesive.
This let me be one with the camera and manipulate its movement without worry. I can't say the same for the shoulder straps.
Highly recommended! Enjoy!
Only real (minor) "flaw" is the bottom rubberized bracket that screws into the camera body twists and turns a bit and gets awkwardly positioned because of a small lip it has (I think meant to prevent that but it's rather short and the bottom part ends up stuck under the body at an awkward angle, but it's rubberized so it bends rather than breaks which is nice).
Also it's somewhat blocking the battery slot at the bottom (d3100) but is easily moved away to allow swapping during shooting.
The side strap covers the door for memory card but really is only an issue when swapping/removing it as well and not a major issue since it too slides (bonus though if your door ever breaks and wont close this will hold it closed, mine's fine but I thought of this when I first installed it).
Overall I just leave this on the body all the time now and it's really 'handy' to use. (Yes pun intended, whats an amazon review without some humor after all).
I looked at a lot of these, in stores and online, before I purchased this one and I think it would be very difficult to find better quality at this price.
