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.

        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.

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

                      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

                        It is what it is. I was expecting it maybe to be a bit less bulky, but it will do the job.

                          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!

                            Not too wide, comfortable, ez adjustable feather weight wrist strap is just right for palm sized cams. Make sure you have compatible mini QD loops to connect to.

                                  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

                                        I was tired of having my camera hanging on my neck not having the neck strap fit easily into my daybag. I wanted something that I could put on easily and feel confident my camera was secure. I tried a grip strap, but when it was tight enough to feel secure it didn't allow enough flexability to use my thumb comfortably and vice-versa. The strap is rated for two and a half pounds which works for my camera at 27 ounces. The neoprene material,the quick disconnect and the adjustible strap are all pluses.

                                          So much better than using the bulky Nikon strap.

                                                I hated the neck strap that came with my camera and this fits the bill for me. It's perfect in size because it does not get tangled up in my small bag. The connector easily attached to the camera. It is adjustable and comfortable around my wrist even when the camera slipped from my hand, there was enough, I guess you could say "slack", in the neoprine to not hurt my wrist.(With it's kit lens 18-55 attached)

                                                The little adjuster leaves some small indentations on the neoprine strap, which initially gave me the idea that maybe it could tear apart at this region, but it has stood up to some abuse and the neoprine kind of "bounces back" into shape, given a little time.

                                                If the one I have were to give out in the future, I am quite confident I will buy this again.

                                                    Just a nice well made strap for medium to large P&S cameras. Perfect for Canon G series cameras.
