      Comments about Floating Wrist Strap (Orange):

      After losing my Nikon AW100 in the lake, I bought a Nikon AW110 and this wriststrap before going to the ocean. Used it while snorkeling and in the pool. Worked just like it was supposed to and I came home with my camera! I only wished it came with a regular wrist strap to attach when not around water.

        Comments about Floating Wrist Strap (Orange):

        I have a strap on my waterproof PaS. I use it for shallow scuba or snorkel. I have been usding it with a strap, but worry when I need two hands that it might slip away. This solves it all. The strap is comfortable and I can easily use the camera while it is attached, in fact, it keeps the camera at ready. I I do drop it, the strap keeps it on the surface and is very easy to spot. I looked at several products for this task and this is the best solution.

          It Floats!

          By Busterbs

          from Tampa, FL

          Comments about Floating Wrist Strap (Orange):

          I haven't had any real world opportunities to test it out, but threw it in the pool and it floated. Connector and string seem well made and I like the quick disconnect feature as the hole in the camera isn't the easiest to thread.

          Fish Stole Camera

              Comments about Floating Wrist Strap (Orange):

              While snorkling in Bora Bora, taking pictures with nearby docile reef sharks, the camera got loose; I thought the camera was safe, since the strap kept the camera from sinking to the bottom. However, one of the reef sharks seemed to mistake the floation strap for a fish, and bit it and took it away. Never did recover the camera.

              Would recommend using this in addition to the small strap that comes with the camera, rather than using just the floatation strap alone.

                Tested the strap before snorkeling and it worked as described. Felt much better swimming with this strap due to the ability to be tightened. It worked great.

                    Bought this to use with Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS5 digital camera which is water proof; since I knew I'd be using it around water, kayaking, boating, etc., I felt that a floating strap would be wise; strap is high quality and very effective!

                    I purchased a Nikon AW120 and bought this strap to use when I am around water. Since the camera will sink faster than I can swim, I figured it was a good idea to have a floating wrist strap. I has a quick release so its easy to put on or off the camera.

                          Luckily, I didn't have to test whether or not this would keep my camera afloat (I assume it would) because you can tighten the wrist strap to fit snugly around your wrist. It worked great for hours of snorkeling, and when using my camera on dry land, it easily unsnapped and left you with a "regular" wrist strap. I also love the bright color and think the price is very reasonable.

                                Quick and easy to use. Keeps the camera floating without the need to hold the camera. The color makes it easy to find if it comes off your wrist. Great value for a low cost.

                                  Plenty of floatation. High visibiliy yellow color and very secure clip. Nicely made, not cheap. Easy to put on and take off of camera. Great price, too.

                                    I purchased for my great nieces to use with Nikon Coolpix S31 cameras I purchased for them. Great idea for them around the pool and canoeing. The quick disconnect is great to have.
