    I purchased two of the WS-20 wrist straps: One for my Canon Powershot G12 and one for my wife's slightly older G11. The strap fits both cameras perfectly and is great for keeping the camera in your hand and ready to shoot at all times, without the fear of it slipping or being bumped out of your hand. The strap is a little longer and wider than most would probably prefer for an on-the-go camera, but it is a sturdy, solid strap. Slimmer and lighter wrist straps did not instill the same confidence as this WS-20.

    The only feature this strap really lacks is the ability to cinch the strap tighter on your wrist; the opening is not adjustable, which may be a turn off for some.

    ..that's been discontinued. It doesn't seem very substantial. I was a bit disappointed with it, but I couldn't find one as nice as the Hakuba. I don't like neck straps, so hopefully I will find a wrist strap more to my liking.

      Comments about Canon WS-20 Wrist Strap:

      This is a nice wrist strap, although a little over-priced. Using it on a Canon SX50hs ultrazoom. It is very sturdy, designed primarily for dSLRs, but works well on an ultrazoom.

          I like the wrist strap when you don't want a strap around your neck. I use the wrist strap on both of my DSLR cameras.

              Comments about Canon WS-20 Wrist Strap:

              I prefer a wrist strap especially on a point and shoot. P&S cams are so small and light that it just doesn't feel right to hang it around my neck or over shoulder. Plus I have big hands and feel like I'm going to drop the g16 when in my hand. The wrist strap fits the bill for me and this one is made well as you would expect from Canon.

                    It's more compact than a shoulder strap. It's easier to handle as the strap wraps perfectly around my wrist. The material is comfortable to the skin which is a plus.

                            I could not find a comfortable grip on my Canon camcorder using the built in strap that would allow me to easily operate both the on/off button and the zoom without jostling the camera. I have found that I can get a better hold without using the built in strap, but that risked dropping the camcorder. Adding this WS-20 wrist strap solves the problem very nicely.

                              Great strap - not too long, not too short, (great) Canon quality, great price. A lot less in the way than the neck straps. Picked 2 up - one for the G15 and the other for the 6D. Works great with the 6D w/ grip in portrait and landscape. Quality seems like it will last a few camera upgrades.

                                      Purchased the wrist strap for my Canon G-12. I felt the regular neck strap just got in the way as I never really hung it around my neck. We spent 5 days in Arizona and walked around a ton and the little camera/strap combo worked great! Glad I bought it.

                                          I am most often clumsy and drop things. The last thing that I want to drop is my camera. The second to last thing I want to do is to wear a neck strap and be limited by motion. This solid strap provided the flexibility and mobility that I enjoy and kept my camera safely harnest to my wrist. A win, win.

                                            Comments about Canon WS-20 Wrist Strap:

                                            I purchased two of the WS-20 wrist straps: One for my Canon Powershot G12 and one for my wife's slightly older G11. The strap fits both cameras perfectly and is great for keeping the camera in your hand and ready to shoot at all times, without the fear of it slipping or being bumped out of your hand. The strap is a little longer and wider than most would probably prefer for an on-the-go camera, but it is a sturdy, solid strap. Slimmer and lighter wrist straps did not instill the same confidence as this WS-20.

                                            The only feature this strap really lacks is the ability to cinch the strap tighter on your wrist; the opening is not adjustable, which may be a turn off for some.

                                              I hung this strap on my G12. The camera isn't quite large enough to warrant a neck strap yet is too heavy for a flimsy wrist strap. This strap seems to fit the bill nicely. It is plenty strong, fits the hand well, and allows enough slack to swing up and shoot without additional adjustments. And it proudly bears the "Canon" name.

                                                Just a mm too wide to fit on the G1 X and I didn't want to force it. Works great for the 7D, though.

                                                    This is a great alternative for those in search of something more inconspicuous than Canon's (look at me) stock neck straps. I've been through numerous straps (neck/sling/wrist) in search of the one that suits me best, and this is the one. It is made with the same quality/durability of the stock straps. I've used it on my 5d Mark II for the past year with no problems. It's more than strong enough to simply let the camera hang in situations where two hands are needed. It cuts down on the bulk when placing my camera in my sling backpack. Most helpful of all, it forces the camera to be in your hands and at the ready at all times! I'm ordering a second for my backup camera now.

                                                      I wanted a wrist strap for my Canon G1X (the neck strap just gets in the way and just seems too much for that tiny little camera). However the problem was finding a wrist strap that was sturdy enough to support the weight of the camera without making me nervous about the thin nylon cord snapping under the pressure and BOOM there goes my $800 camera. This strap is great! It is very sturdy and well made. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because there is no slider to adjust the strap tighter on my wrist.
