    Did not want to purchase a battery/grip for my 7D since the body is large enough to grip by itself (was not the case with my 20D). Wanted to add the Canon hand strap but for some reason they don't make one that will attach without a grip. It's easy to insert you hand into this strap, one quick pull of the cinch strap and it's not going to fall off your hand. A quick pull of the release and it's off easily. The mount on the bottom is well made, does NOT interfere with the battery compartment at all, and you can connect your tripod to that part as well (don't need to pull off part of the hand grip to put on your tripod.

    I currently use a RS WS-1 for women, which is great, but I was feeling that with my turbo battery and camera bag, I had too many straps. I wanted to try a hand grip. This grip seems well made and sturdy, but it's not for me. It felt big on my hand despite the adjustments. The adjustments made it tight, but it still felt big for a woman's small/medium hand. Also, it inhibited my range of motion and made it difficult and uncomfortable to reach the Nikon focus ring on a D700. I would not recommend it for women, I can't speak for how it might feel and work on a bigger hand.

      Comments about Pentax DSLR Leather Hand Strap:

      upon removing it from the package there was no instructions so it took a little while to figure it out but once I did I found it to be better than another that I recently bought at about the same cost. It is comfortable and it does very well strap on to my hand even with 24-70mm f/2.8 lens attact to my Nikon D7100.

          Very well made and great fit and feel. But, if you have the battery pack you will not be able to use this. Too bad because it is so nice of an accessory for the K-3/5/7!

                Comments about Pentax DSLR Leather Hand Strap:

                I chose this hand strap based on good reviews and the description given in the product spec. It is supposed to be compatible with all Pentax SLRs and does in fact fit my Pentax K5 but does NOT fit the battery grip D-BG4. I was disappointed that there was no mention of this incompatibility in the product description on the B&H website. I researched further and the only place I found the information was on pentaxwebstore.com. That said, I would have kept the strap if it had fit the battery grip because it is a quality product, but unfortunately I have had to return it.

                        Use this on my Nikon D7000 w/md11 batt. grip...just insert your hand and tighten down strap...very secure and comfortable.
                        The build quality is as good as Nikons hand strap and at a reasonable price.

                          Comments about Pentax DSLR Leather Hand Strap:

                          I bought this hand strap because I had one on a Mamiya 645 and found it very useful. I read other reviews with cons concerning size, fit and lack of directions. I wear a men's large glove and this strap fits perfectly. It places my hand is exactly the correct position for holding the camera and I can reach all of the controls except the 4-way and OK button. However, I have fingers on my left hand that took over that function quite easily. With this strap the camera feels like an extension of my arm and hand. I can carry the camera without any chance of dropping it and it is always ready, just point and snap if that is your style.
                          As for directions: The screw goes in the tripod receiver, the small web strap where the neck strap attached on the right side of the camera. Then the snap wraps over that strap and snaps. Thread the wide web strap through the double metal rings, also the leather tab. Finally loop the plastic end of the wide webbing back over the top of the right hand ring and through the left hand ring. Put your hand through the loop made by the wide webbing and the leather strap and grab the camera. Pull the plastic tab to your left to tighten then back over your hand and attach the velcro to the velcro. To take it off pull the velcro loose and pull on the leather tab.

                          Using it on a Pentax K10 with battery grip. Fits my large-glove-size hand and allows a firm connection with the camera. Need to search internet for instructions on how to attach to camera correctly to make sure you have the loops going the correct way. Once you find that, it's all good.

                              I tried two others before finding this: the B-Grip Hand Strap and the Zing SLR Action Strap. To me this gives the best hand, wrist support…by far. I liked it so much that I bought another one. Now I carry two D300 bodies on a Spider Holster with these straps attached. One of the bodies has the battery grip as well.

                              The bad: no instructions. I found it fairly simple to attach but had to put my hand in a couple of different ways before figuring out how to do it properly. I put up a series of pictures in my flickr account: caprae is the name to look for.

                              It is nice in that it has a tab you pull to loosen it. From what I can tell this is the way the Nikon wrist strap works.

                                This is really easy to attach. I love how fast it is to get my hand in and out while still not having to worry about it falling off my hand. It's really comfortable and is very adjustable. I like how it has a tripod mount as well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

                                The only con is that it doesn't come with instructions on how to install it. Once I figured that out, I felt much more secure carrying around an expensive camera in my hand.

                                  Comments about Pentax DSLR Leather Hand Strap:

                                  The strap does not adjust well to my hand (my hand is not large) and makes accessing some of the controls awkward. It seems to be well made but for the money, would have expected a better design that fits better with my Pentax camera. I would not by the product again nor recommend it.

                                      Other reviewers are right that the lack of instructions forces you to take a few minutes to figure out how to attach it. No bid deal. Fits great on my D5100, does not interfere with articulated screen in any way.

                                      Much preferred to the neck strap especially with some of the heavier lenses.

                                      Just installed it, so no long-term durability experience, but it appears well constructed.

                                      Recommended.

                                      No instructions with package, no instructions on the internet, no pictures and no youtube videos to show you how to attach the hand strap. By the time you figure out how to attach the stap you arrive at the inescapeable conclusion that it was not worth the time to figure out how to attach the strap. By the time I finally got my hand in the strap it was uncomfortable and attempting to adjust the strap just made the situation worse. Move on to something else and forget about this strap, it's a royal pain in the alpha sam sam.

                                        wonder why I waited so long before to buy such a item ! Soooo much easier than the regular strap. The camera is always ready, just lift you hand and shoot ! Only down point, a little small, strap to short, for people with extra large hands but I have not seen any bigger sizes in other brands / models
