I picked up this strap in LA last summer & instantly loved it. Even with heavy bodies and lenses, I can drop my arm to my side and maintain a secure hold of the camera with a relaxed grip.You need to adjust it somewhat loosely or you will restrict the mobility of your index finger. After a year of use though, the strap totally loosened and dropped my expensive gear to the ground. Fortunately I was shooting football and my camera fell upon soft grass.As a failsafe I fed the strap back through the adjuster a second time. See the attached photos. It works well with both standard and gripped bodies.Hope this is helpful.Anthony

Like most, I wanted this grip to replace the Nikon strap with the rubber-like backing which annoyingly grips the neck. The strap itself was inexpensive but was far better quality than I expected, it is made in Japan which was also unexpected.

I strapped it to my D90 and adjusted it for fit within 5 minutes, super easy to attach. It fits well and keeps the camera secure, however once I started actually using the camera, I had to do some re-adjusting.

The problem is that my "trigger finger" movement is hampered by the top strap. Imagine tightening your existing neck strap downwards while trying to press the shutter and you get the idea. My only solution was to loosen the strap enough so that it didn't get in the way as much and I got used to it.

At first it felt like the strap was really loose (as if I could drop the camera) but after a few days of use, the loose feeling doesn't bother me so much. It's not possible to make this strap snug and comfortably press the shutter. I have medium-sized hands and by design I don't think it can be improved much due to where the strap goes on the top mount of most DSLRs.

It's still better than the neck strap IMO. I rarely walk around for long periods with a DSLR anyway. One other thing to note is that you have to unscrew the bottom mounting plate to charge the battery.

            Limits ability to change controls of your camera. Only good for hanging on your hand but if it's too tight you can't change controls.

            Well made and inexpensive. I chose this over the Nikon-branded grip strap because of price and am pleased with the purchase. I use it on my Nikon D7100 w/Battery Pack and it still has a large range of motion for loosening/cinching. I would have liked a secondary eyelet on the top strap so that I could still attach my neck strap to the top of the camera.

                Comments about Hakuba LH Camera Grip Hand Strap:

                The strap has a tendency to loosen up with use causing you to adjust it frequently but not to the point of dropping the camera. The base plate may need to be modified slightly to use on cameras with flip out screens. All in all for the price it functions ok.

                I really like these. I bought two more, one for each camera this time. I wore out my other one. But it got good use. I like the security it gives me when hand holding the cameras, walking along knowing it won't slip out of my hands. I actually prefer these over shoulder straps. I would recommend them for sure.

                  This alleviates that fear of dropping your expensive DSLR go away, with out using a neck strap which for me always seems to get in the way of my shots. Attaching requires a little more focus than it should, but that still isnt as bad as adjusting it. Its a pain to adjust, but once adjusted it is a great product.

                      The grip hand strap takes some getting used to, especially if you are used to wrap the long strap around your wrist normally. I might need to give it some more time, but at the moment, I am not 100% convinced that I will use it all the time.

                          Comments about Hakuba LH Camera Grip Hand Strap:

                          I purchased this grip after reading so many great reviews of it. It seemed like the best carry option for my Panasonic G5.

                          I was wrong. I installed/adjusted it as per the instructions and it was a terrible fit. One of the problems is the plate that attaches to the bottom of the camera. It has a small lip that does not let me open the rear articulating LCD screen of my G5! I tried mounting this hand strap on the left side, but then the bottom plate stuck out too far.

                          I decided to re-install it back to the right side (despite the rear LCD screen being trapped) just to see how well the actual srap feels. I would have been willing to file down the metal lip if the strap felt secure, but it didn't.

                          If you tighten the bottom tightning knob, the entire bottom plate bends causing a gap near the strap end. Also, if you tighten the actual strap too much, you will have trouble inserting your hand into the strap. If you loosen it up a bit, it will slip from your hands instantly.

                          I tried it on a bigger camera (my Nikon D200). It was an equally uncomfortable grip (too tight or slightly loose causing the camera to slip from my hand. The outer portion of the strap that surrounds your hand does not entirely make contact with your hand. You can feel the thin nlyon strap around your hand under the nice looking wider portion of the strap. Also, the bottom attachment plate covers the battery door of my D200. If I were to try to remove the battery from my D200 (like if I wanted to charge it for example) I would have to unscrew the tightning knob and remove the attachment plate. That is way too much work just to change a simple battery. I had the same problem when I tried mounting it on my Canon T3i.

                          I tried mounting this hand strap on an even bigger camera (my old D1X, and it was just as bad.

                          I have no idea what camera this strap was meant for, but I can say with all certainty that it does not fit well with a Panasonic G5, a Nikon D200, a Nikon D1x or a Canon T3i.

                          I immediately wanted to return this product, but if you add what I paid for shipping originally and what it would cost me to send it back, it would cost more than if I kept it.

                          B&H was very good about issuing me a return number, but I decided to keep it as, again, it would cost me more in shipping than what I paid for the strap.

                          I am so disapointed with this strap that I won't even consider giving it away to anyone as I truly believe it is dangerous for your equipment. It is way too easy for your camera to slip out of your hands with this strap. For now it will remain in its original packaging as a reminder for me to really do my homework before spending any money no matter how little.

                          Bought this product to eliminate the neck strap. It gives a steady, firm grip when shooting, and alleviates fatigue when carrying the camera. It works as it should and was easy to install. I have used it with the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 with teleconverter, my heaviest lens combo, and it handled it just fine. Seems to be well made, and should last a good, long time. The only draw back is that it must be removed from the bottom of camera to change batteries, but that is not a big deal...it does not have to be completely removed...just unscrew the part that screws into the tripod mount on bottom of camera to access battery compartment. Bottom line, it does exactly what I purchased it to do. Very satisfied with product...and of course with B&H's great service and delivery of product.

                            I like this hand strap, but it took me a couple uses to get the strap right. After that is works well.

                            The design is not very convenient. Strap is too long.

                              After trying a few different brands, I managed to find one that was both comfortable and secure. Just awesome.

                                I don't like anything around my neck so this hand strap is a great solution. It installs easy, I have easy access to the camera battery & memory cards & most importantly it is very comfortable!
