I use this strap with my point-and-shoot camera, instead of the dainty wrist straps that typically accompany point-and-shoots.

Great features:
-larger size makes it quicker to get your wrist through it (and hence more likely to do so)
-fast and easy adjustment to tighten the strap to your wrist for those activities during which you really think the camera might slip
-the neoprene has enough give so should the camera slip it doesn't jerk your arm like a regular strap would
-quick disconnect (QD) feature in case you find the strap and camera to large to fit into a smaller pocket

One (very) minor gripe:
While the loop which attaches to the camera is fairly small, it won't thread easily through the tiniest of camera holders. I worked around this by attaching a fishing line to the loop and using that to thread it through the camera holder. To be fair, the strap may not have been intended for use on very small cameras, but I find it much better to use than an official, dainty strap.

I am giving this 3 stars as a compromise. It is a great wrist strap for heavy items (5 stars), but I would say that it is unsuitable to most modern, small digital cameras (1 star). Want a strap that bulks over the camera? Buy this. However it does cure a pet peeve of a lot of photographers. Why have all of the camera manufacturers removed the adjustable piece from wrist straps? It is small, unobtrusive, and does no one any harm. It can save a camera from rolling down from the wrist. It must add all of 10 cents to the camera's manufacturing cost[...]I looked through several manufacturers and found that Olympus still includes an adjuster. I replaced this strap with the Olympus digital camera strap. It works well, but has Olympus written in two places.

      I am very fond of Op/Tech products. This one is listed as an accessory for the Canon Powershot G16, but it will not fit the Canon Powershot G16. I bought them both.

              I have one of these OP/TECH straps on all of my point and shoot cameras. They hold the camera securely and eliminate the possibility of dropping the camera. They are the best solution available for very little money and the quality is excellent.

              I bought this strap when I bought a new camera from B&H (because I recently dropped and broke the camera I just bought for Christmas.). So I got the most secure strap I could find, and this fit the bill.

                  This wrist strap has the same Mini QD side release as OpTech's Mirrorless Strap and can be quickly attached to a camera already so equipped for times when a wrist strap is all that's wanted. It also has an adjustable collar to tighten the strap as needed. Neoprene with cloth on both sides, it has stretchy give, and is quite comfortable and secure.

                    I bought this strap for my Sony A6000, with the kit lens. This strap is made of neoprene, and is very light weight. With the weight of the camera, it stretches the neoprene a bit, but has not broken or ripped. It is really meant for a point and shoot camera, not a mirrorless. I would recommend this strap to others.

                        Makes for a great easy way to carry my LX100 for everyday shooting, and nicely interchangeable with the Op-Tech shoulder sling, using the same clip attached to the camera.
                        My only concern is simply the fear that the whole camera hangs by a rather thin piece of cord, and relies on a single small clip. Based on other Op-Tech gear I've had, my head tells me that it will all be fine...but still...

                          I use this with my Nikon One camera. I got this for two reasons -
                          1) Stretchy, comfortable Neoprene band
                          2) Easy attach/detach system
                          It's just what I wanted as it's easy to use and very comfortable even with the big 70-300mm lens attached.
                          If your hands are XXL's it might be a tad snug.

                          I use this with my Sony mirrorless. It's great to be able to secure it to my wrist when I'm doing a lot of hand-held shooting, and not have yards of strap to get out of the way when putting it on a tripod. I wouldn't want to carry a camera any heavier than this one for long, though, because the strap is on the thin side. Works for me, though, especially for the price.

                            Very comfortable. Flexible too.

                            Looks and feels good, but..
                            1. bit too bulky
                            2. wonder how long the noprene will last
                            3. loop bit small so I cannot get my hand out quickly when I need to.

                              I wanted a simple hand strip for my camera, but not something that would get in the way. This does the trick.

                              It's attached to my RX100 and it works great. It seems tough and well made. The size adjustment works great for me and my wife. Only issue is that it's a bit ugly with unfinished sides of the strap. Highly recommended.
