Used when I must be in the field and mobile, or just want to have a Firm shooting grip. This Comfortable Grip Strap can be adjusted to Custom Fit your hand 3 different ways attaining a Tight, Solid grip on your FX or DX frame Nikon. It holds my D800E Perfectly WITH/WO battery grip and stays tight and comfortable the entire time it's on my hand. Perfect for being Ready for Action shots and Still Macros without a tripod. Made of Quality leather and good workmanship, this strap will endure day after day in the field Running for the Best shot. If you have a Large hand,, the Velcro strap which folds back over the adjustment buckle, may fall short of catching the Velcro pad on the backhand but I added a small piece of Velcro I had of the same width as an extension. Works Great!!!! Your hand should fit Fine! The attachment on the bottom of the camera has a 1/4"-20 socket at IT's bottom so you can mount it on a tripod without removing the strap. NICE!

Incompatibility: if you use any mounting plate,e.g. if you are using the Really right Stuff's camera mounting plate.You can either mount your camera mounting plate OR mounting this hand grip without the camera mounting plate, but not both. It's because these two do competing for the mounting space at the bottom of the camera. The above statement pertained to my Nikon D2X and D3s Pro Cameras. I am pretty sure people who bought the hand grip will experience the same thing the I am experiencing.

    Very comfortable and fits all hand sizes.
    I was worried it would not fit a female hand but it perfect.
    Little pricey but well made.

        I tried several others but wasn't happy. I decided to go for broke and spend the money on this and it was worth it. Very comfortable fit and soft leather.

          Comments about Nikon AH-4 Hand Grip Strap:

          I needed something to attach my D800 to my hand as traditional neck/shoulder straps aren't always the most convenient. This grip is by far the best that I have found and if it were sold at a reasonable price I likely would be pleased with my purchase. As it is, this grip is grossly overpriced. Nikon has a well earned reputation for the excellent performance of most of their high-end cameras. They have an equally well earned reputation for offering second rate equipment at their lower price points and for gouging loyal customers committed to the Nikon brand. Knowing this, I still bought it...

                Comments about Nikon AH-4 Hand Grip Strap:

                A valuable accessory when carrying your DSLR camera. Being an extension of your arm it lightens the weight of your camera. It is very secure, comfortable, especially after several days use, and quick to release. BUT combine it with a Back Rapid RS 7 curved shoulder strap you have the perfect combination needed for the enthusiastic camera traveller. You can quickly attach the RS 7 strap to the Nikon AH-4 Hand Grip Strap and release the AH-4 to free both hands. With both attached to the camera it makes it even lighter. I have just spent 4 weeks travelling the USA and Canada with a Nikon D600 with a 28-300mm lens and never felt uncomfortable.

                  Comments about Nikon AH-4 Hand Grip Strap:

                  I have tried a lot of hand grips none of which worked all that well (hard to adjust, did not stay attached to the tripod socket well, too large for small hands), ffinally decided to try the one from Nikon. Finally a hand grip that works with or without the motor drive, easy to adjust over a wide range of hand sizes (mine are small, partner's are very large and works very well for us both). Yes, it is pricier than others but the leather is high quality, attachment to the camera is simple and well designed, and the grip it self is easy to put on and take off and quickly adjustable. No complaints. Quality always costs a bit more.

This Comfortable Grip Strap can be adjusted to Custom Fit your hand 3 different ways attaining a Tight, Solid grip on your FX or DX frame Nikon. It holds my D800E Perfectly WITH/WO battery grip and stays tight and comfortable the entire time it's on my hand. Perfect for being Ready for Action shots and Still Macros without a tripod. Made of Quality leather and good workmanship, this strap will endure day after day in the field Running for the Best shot. If you have a Large hand,, the Velcro strap which folds back over the adjustment buckle, may fall short of catching the Velcro pad on the backhand but I added a small piece of Velcro I had of the same width as an extension. Works Great!!!! Your hand should fit Fine! The attachment on the bottom of the camera has a 1/4"-20 socket at IT's bottom so you can mount it on a tripod without removing the strap. NICE!

                                Owning only heavy 2.8 glass, this strap is an essential part of my shooting comfort! However, be aware it takes time to break it in. And it takes patience to learn how to adjust it to make it comfortable. One trick I found was to attach the top strap to a small, secure clip -- this does two things. 1) it makes it more adjustable (i.e. functional!) especially for people with bigger hands. 2) it makes it easy to take it off if you want to switch to an over-the-shoulder strap alone. I personally use this strap in combo with a Black Rapid RS7. I could not do without this strap!!

                                  Very good quality, but as I have big hands, it was not easy to get a comfortable fit. Got a new Blackrapid sling, so sticking with that for easy travel.

                                      Have used this on a Nikon D70 and D7000. It's gives great stability for 1 handed shooting. Adjustable to fit any size hand. Bought one for me and later gave one as a gift because they liked it so much as well.

                                      I've used the hand strap only once at this point, but found that the strap is comfortable and gives me a feeling of security, knowing that the camera really can't fly out of my hand under any circumstances. It was a little disconcerting to attach, since the diagrams that came with the product are not as explicit as they might have been and the photo in the catalogue isnot at all helpful.
