I bought this to use with my Sanyo Xacti VPC-E2 Digital Camcorder and 8 MP Digital Camera (Blue). The strap is sufficiently buoyant that even with the camera attached it still floats at the surface. If I wanted to play with my daughter I could take the thing off my wrist and set it off to the side. When I wanted to take some pictures a few minutes later it was still there, floating patiently, waiting for me. (Wish I could say the same for my daughter but she's 11 months old and sinks like a rock.)

The strap also has a quick disconnect feature. It allows you to easily disconnect the camera and supplied short cord from the wrist strap. However, it is very diffucult to reconnect it without help. (It's easy to uncouple but difficult to reconnect with one hand.)

UPDATE: It's a year later and I just got back from a beach/pool vacation. The wrist strap and Sanyo camera are still working fine. With continued use I've come to appreciate the bright yellow color of this wrist strap. It not only makes it easy to spot my camera floating in the pool but also in my suitcase or sitting someplace in the hotel room. Saddly, my daughter, now almost two, still sinks like a rock unless she's wearing her Swimways Soft Swimmies (Colors May Vary).

All kidding aside, for < $10 this is a "must have" addition for any waterproof camera.

UPDATE: Another 2 1/2 years have gone by and we're packing to head to the beach.

I bought this strap for my Pentax W60 so that I could feel a little bit better about taking the camera white water rafting regularly. The waterproof camera is amazing and being able to strap it on with a floating strap is even better! It was nice having my camera out to catch the wildlife along the river without having to take it out of case. It did indeed float with my camera attached when I tested it out on a relatively calm portion of river. I'm very glad I bought this strap.

I bought this for my Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS2 and my trip to the Carribean.

I almost didn't get a floating strap, but I'm glad I did. In the ocean, there is so much going on, and I was glad that this had a wrist strap that could securely hold the camera on my wrist. When they dropped us in the deep water on our snorkeling tour, I was glad I didn't have to worry about my camera because waves were knocking me around and I was still adjusting my snorkel gear, etc.

In the calm waters, I tested to make sure my Lumix camera would float, and it did with this strap.

I think it's worth a few bucks to make sure your camera doesn't sink to the bottom of the ocean.

First time out with my new waterproof Pentax camera and I didn't want to take any chances of losing it while snorkeling. Thought this strap would be just the answer. Easy to attach to the camera and easy to get on and off my wrist. even thought I never tested to see just how long or far I'd allow it to get away from me. It sure gave me extra extra confidence that I wouldn't and didn't lose it. Good product.

We have used this strap in the pool with our Canon D10. Snaps right on the camera perfectly. It's not too cumbersome, fits around my smaller wrist and works perfectly. The camera was always floating whenever we put it down to play around in the pool, even when the kids would create quite a few waves in the water. The pictures submitted by Tom D. portray accurately how ours worked with the D10 attached. We trust it and will be taking it with us when we snorkel in Hawaii for our vacation this year!

I have two of these, the first one was purchased for my Pentax WG2 camera, but I bought the second one for my GoPro. Best floating must strap I've found.

Edit: I now have three of these, as a purchased another GoPro-ish camera, and this worked (and continues to work) so well for my first GoPro-ish camera. I couldn't find this specific strap with Amazon Prime shipping, so I purchased another similar product (Vivitar floating camera strap), and I returned it after opening it. The Pentax strap is much higher quality of materials and construction, and the Vivitar strap was way too big to be wrist strap (no, it wasn't a neck strap). The Pentax model is just a vastly superior product.

One thing to note though -- this is no longer shipped under the "Pentax" namebrand as advertised and pictured. Since Ricoh bought out Pentax, it has been co-branding some Pentax products, but others it changed the Pentax namebrand to Ricoh. For example, the Pentax WG line of waterproof cameras is now branded as Ricoh. When my third strap arrived, I was not overly surprised to see that the Pentax logo had been replaced with Ricoh. I hope this alleviates confusion by anyone who doesn't know that Ricoh now owns Pentax.

Tip: I use these wrist straps mostly as camera floats when kayak fishing in saltwater. Some of the 1-star reviews have a point -- the spring on the tension adjustment will rust, especially after using it in saltwater. After each trip, just give the entire strap (and your cameras for that matter) a good rinsing in tap water, let it air dry, and then put just a drop of any type of oil/lube you have on hand on the spring and it won't rust. I frequently use fishing reel lube because that's readily available in my tackle box. My first strap did start to rust, but seeing that, I do the above process each time and the other two (and the original one after cleaning out the rust) don't rust anymore. Hope this helps.
