      Well, they call it a "wrist strap" true, but perhaps we should think of this product in a different way. While you can certainly place the strap around your wrist, considering the weight of an DSLR with lens, why would you want to? A much better way to think of this product is as a "safety HAND strap. I use this strap by placing just my hand through the loop, with the loop encircling my palm and the back of my hand. Then I simply grasp the camera grip, allowing the inside part of the strap to fall between my palm and the camera grip. This is possible, and is very easy in fact, because the strap is thin (not padded). The strap is secure around my hand now, safeguarding the camera and lens from dropping. I use this "hand strap" at times that I want to photograph in a more discrete fashion without the burden of the longer BlackRapid S2 strap (like street shooting). Works like a charm!

      Nicely constructed product but the strap is about 2 inches too short to easily get around a larger wrist.
      Black Rapid should also remove the buckle and replace it with the quick release they use on the standard straps to make tigthening one handed easier.

            As a professional photographer I like the fact I can still be tethered to the camera without a bulky strap. Simple, on my wrist not neck.

              Comments about BlackRapid Wrist Strap (Black):

              this strap is good for those that want the safety of having a wrist strap while they are carrying their camera. if i need to let the camera hang temporarily i can, but it is not comfortable to carry a DSLR that way. This is better for additional safety while carrying your camera. on a smaller point and shoot, it may differ. i do not use it for that. get the rubber loop with this strap as it is quieter than the metal loop that screws into the tripod mount.

                  Sometimes I do not want my big Black Rapid neck strap attached, so this does the trick. This hand strap adds security when I handhold my camera right out of my purse camera bag. Attaching to my camera is super easy since I already use the Black Rapid system.

                    This is a good strap and if I were into the whole Blackrapid system it would be a must. I decided I liked a wrist strap that attaches from the side rather than the bottom and a sling pack indeed. Just personal preference.

                    Comments about BlackRapid Wrist Strap (Black):

                    I have a reasonably sized lens on my carry-around rig, namely a Canon 100-400 f4.5-5.6 USM IS lens. I would hate to drop that so typically I utilize a shoulder rig to carry it when I am shooting. Often, however, I just grab my camera for an opportunity that suddenly arises and this BlackRapid strap gives me the security that I want and need. It is a quality product, attractive looking, and fits me well. Understand that this is not a stand-alone strap and also requires the Fasten R3, which is a very high quality piece that screws into the tripod female fitting on the bottom of the camera. The strap then fastens to it with a high quality piece of hardware.

                    I liked the combination so much, I am awaiting the arrival of my second one for another camera.

                        Comments about BlackRapid Wrist Strap (Black):

                        I guess I should've read the page a little more carefully? I bought two, they just arrived and it turns out I need to buy the $13.95 "FastenR-3" bolts.

                        If you already own other Blackrapid products I guess you could consider this, it looks solid; if you don't then look elsewhere or add the $13.95 mandatory extra to the price of the strap.

                            might have to add some sort of extension to this...it works like it should, but when I rotate to shoot portrait the strap doesn't let me get my arm in the usual position.

                                I picked up this strap to use with my Fuji xpro 100 when not using a neck strap. It just barely fits. If you have extra large hands or thick wrists, it's probably not for you. There is no way to adjust it to more than about 3.5 inches in diameter.

                                    When traveling light, this strap provides extra security that one won't drop or have the camera knocked from hand. Another quality product from BlackRapid.

                                          Comments about BlackRapid Wrist Strap (Black):

                                          Been waiting for a good/simple wrist strap like this for a bit. The fact that you can easily interchange your DSLR between the wrist strap and a standard BlackRapid over the shoulder strap is an added bonus. Great for when out on a shoot (nature, wedding) and you need to detach from your shoulder strap without losing that sense of security. Have not been enticed by similar products as they were too bulky or ugly in appearance (yes, this matters, to me anyways), so I was glad to jump at this one.

                                          Comments about BlackRapid Wrist Strap (Black):

                                          I am moving from using the standard Nikon shoulder strap to this wrist strap and couldn't be happier with the product.

                                          My only caution is to understand that you have to get another piece for the wrist strap to connect with. It wasn't clear to me that it wasn't included with this product but was a separate item to buy.

                                            Well built, strong strap. It's a BlackRapid, so you get what you expect there. I do wish there was another option for attaching it. I don't use a wrist strap for my big cameras, nor do I need the beefy mount point that I use on those on a little camera. But it works well for what it is
