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.

        great heavy duty strap

        By Rudy A

        from Brooklyn ny

        Comments about OP/TECH USA Cam Strap-QD (Black):

        The wrist strap and the piece that goes on the cam seperates via plastic snap. The wrist strap is flexable bit wont stretch enouch to fall off your hand. Made of elastic foam layerd with fabric (polyester maybe). Gread product for the price ande made in USA! I use on my fujifilm x20 but can deff support a dslr.

            I was looking for something to secured expensive Sony RX100 M3. I'm an amature, but an avid pick up and shoot photography. So this wrist strap does the job. Click well, plastic is strong.

                  Comfortable, reasonanbly secure feeling (only because it is a soft stretchy material does it leave you wondering will this snap when I don't expect it)and probably will last a long time.. but the price makes it a deal..

                  Oh, I have X-large hands and it would have got 5 stars if it were ever so longer.. but it fits great after pullin on.. for smaller hands it is adjustable

                        Strap not needed for Finepix S1 point & shoot which has the neck/shoulder strap included. All were gifts and looks like a quality, secure, quick-release strap. Trying to figure out what else I could use it for.:-) Will most likely exchange for other type of accessories or camera.

                        Use many OP Tech products and they continue to provide excellent quality at very affordable prices. Use this strap for my backup Pentax MX1 which is a little brick. Quick release is a good feature. Made in USA

                          who buys a camera waterproof can not risk it slipping from your hand during a dive and lost in the bottom of the sea or lake. Using the handle of this security risk is eliminated.

                                This was a poor hand strap for a small compact camera. Very strong and durable, but way too thick for a small camera. Forget trying to get it to fit in any case near the size one would typically expect for a compact camera. For a bigger camera, someone might like this strap a lot.

                                This item was recommended by B&H when checking out for a purchase of a CoolPix AW110

                                    Before I got this strap, I wasn't sure I would like neoprene, but it was immediately comfortable and I like it a lot. Unobtrusive, very soft, fits one's wrist beautifully. This is the first op/tech product I've used and it's great. I have it on a Canon G15 camera and I highly recommend it!

                                        I particularly like the fact that you can tighten the strap on your wrist and it is still comfortable to wear.

                                            I use it with Panasonic G3 which is a bit bigger and heavier than a point and shoot. But it's supposed to hold up to 2.5 lb. I felt the camera is too light and small for a shoulder strap that came with the camera. So I decided to try this instead. My first impression was that the material that is used for this stap gives me a little bit of doubt holding the weight with a heavier lens such as Panasonic 100-300mm zoom. I probably feel safer if it doesn't have a mini quick disconnect devise on strap. But most of time I'm holding the camrea anyway when it's not in a camera bag. This gives me security for an accidental drop. Not as annoying as having a shoulder strap. It still stays on my G3.

                                              Straps looks OK, but I'm not sure that I trust the plastic click-on buckle sufficiently to carry my expensive backup point-and shoot camera with it. OK as safety strap.

                                                This strap is a good fit for my Canon G15, soft feel on arm, yet secure when using the slider
