Opteka also provides a threaded tripod mount to the bottom of the plate so you don't even have to take it off for tripod work, although I use this feature sparingly because it's not all that robust. If I'm shooting with a tripod a lot, I simply unscrew the bottom plate and let the Opteka grip hang at the side of the camera, then re-screw it when I remove the tripod. Easy, fast and secure.Read more ›
Now, after all these years I finally purchased one and I can't believe the difference...
Okay, much safer than hand carrying - but this is the secondary part - the important difference is the feel, and the sensitivity in the trigger-finger. While normally the fingers merely occupied holding the camera, you have now the weight different distributed and your fingers free for the actual important and sensitive task to push buttons, turn the wheel etc. A must-feel-experience!
I can't believe the difference! I just ordered the second one for another camera....
To go more in detail - my cameras are quite heavy and most of them have a battery grip. This makes the distance between tripod mount and upper strap attachment perfect for this hand strap. On most of my cameras I have about 4+ inches, adequate to have the strap snug around my hand - firm and comfortable at the right length. If I try the strap on a smaller camera with only about 2+ inches height, or without battery grip, the handling appears rather odd.
Therefore, if you have a larger camera, or use a battery grip, the opteka strap does amazing things for you. If your camera does not have a battery grip, you might not absolutely share my exhitement for it.
Either way, it is definitelly worth trying, considering the relative low price.
The quality appears okay and the looks is good. The leather part is actually some type of nylon or artificial leather - let's see how long this is holding up under heavy pro use.
Highly recommendable! Great price!
It takes a lot of hand shaking out of shooting and will definitelly help to get sharper pictures.
All in all, a solid product well worth the money. Honestly, it even looks better (and more comfortable) than the other handstraps that are 3x as much. I use mine with my Nikon D80, and it works greak (and no additional "vertical" grip required to fit/feel great).

The one difference is about 1" to 2" of strap length, meaning that Opteka removed about 1" to 2" off the total length of the strap (my guess is that it was cheaper). This is relevant if, like me, you prefer to install the hand grip without the plastic doohickey on the bottom. I have an L-plate on the bottom of my Canon 60D and an L-plate on the bottom of my Canon 5D Mark II. Rather than use the plastic bottom piece, I connect the strap directly to my L-plates. When I do this, the OLD strap is long enough for me to double-up the strap on the top buckle so that it will not become undone (and subsequently drop my camera). The NEW strap is too short to add this protection, and thus I have no safety backup. I tried the new strap on both the 60D and 5D Mark II with the same results.
I contacted Opteka about this, and they basically told me that the shorter strap is not a design flaw because they changed the specs. Well... they get 1-star for this design change.
This strap is inexpensive and is produced in China. There are other brands selling the EXACT same strap under different brand names. Just do a search on Amazon and several will appear, and they are exactly the same thing for less money. If you want this strap, you will save money by rolling the dice with another brand.
If you have an L-bracket on the bottom of your camera, you do NOT want this strap (FYI, I use Really Right Stuff L-brackets).Read more ›
