Hakuba KGP-02 reviews

LH Camera Grip Hand Strap is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 164.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hope This is Helpful I picked up this strap in LA last summer & instantly loved it. Even with heavy bodies and lenses, I can drop my arm to my side and maintain a secure hold of the camera with a relaxed grip.You need to adjust it somewhat loosely or you will restrict the mobility of your index finger. After a year of use though, the strap totally loosened and dropped my expensive gear to the ground. Fortunately I was shooting football and my camera fell upon soft grass.As a failsafe I fed the strap back through the adjuster a second time. See the attached photos. It works well with both standard and gripped bodies.Hope this is helpful.Anthony

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Major improvement over the OE neck strap I always found myself wrapping the cameras neck strap around my wrist and just holding the body with my right hand. I never used the neck strap for a neck strap and it got in the way while shooting. This grip is very comfortable to carry and shoot with for extended periods. Both of my DSLR bodies have them now. The base plate is a little hokey and bows a little over time. It also caused the rubber bottom to un-glue itself from my D200. I've since replaced the bottom plate with a RRS style bracket that has a grip loop but still use the Hakuba strap & pad. Even with a camera as light & small like the D40, I still love the grip. Wouldn't own a DSLR without one anymore!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have Accessory! I love having a camera that can take great pictures with me, but I always hated having it dangling around my neck. I typically would wrap the neck strap around my wrist and hold the camera in my hand when I had a Sony DSC-H10. I recently upgraded to a Nikon D90 and got this handle for it. Recently took a trip to Lake Tahoe, and this is a great product. Easy to grab out of the bag and it is ready to go. My only minor gripe is that if you are using a tripod and turn the camera for a vertical shot, sometimes the camera will move as it is hard to tighten both the grip and the tripod to the grip. This is easily remedied, I disconnected the grip while using the tripod.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works pretty good I have a Pentax K30. I put this on like the instructions showed. The fit was great and the camera felt very secure. The problem comes from the fact that the shutter button is located directly on top of the housing and I could not comfortably push the button. So I filed off the little protrusion on the bottom of the plate and was able to change the angle of the bottom plate so that I can now push the shutter without being a contortionist. I've used the camera several times, used a tripod with the strap still on and have had no issues. Camera feels secure and helps when I have those bigger lenses mounted and I'm not using a tripod.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful accessory Bought this product to eliminate the neck strap. It gives a steady, firm grip when shooting, and alleviates fatigue when carrying the camera. It works as it should and was easy to install. I have used it with the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 with teleconverter, my heaviest lens combo, and it handled it just fine. Seems to be well made, and should last a good, long time. The only draw back is that it must be removed from the bottom of camera to change batteries, but that is not a big deal...it does not have to be completely removed...just unscrew the part that screws into the tripod mount on bottom of camera to access battery compartment. Bottom line, it does exactly what I purchased it to do. Very satisfied with product...and of course with B&H's great service and delivery of product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from try berofe you buy! I tried the product in store and it is 95% the same item as the one from Sunpack. The Hakuba is slightly more cushioned but the bottom mount and the knob are identical. Unfortunately, it becomes obvious in a second that it wasn't designed for the Nikon D90 or rather, the D90 wasn't designed for handstraps. I find it impossible to press the shutter when the strap is tight, when it's not, it doesn't help holding the camera. However, when the strap is really tight , it does help me relax while carrying the camera around. I need to sleep on it and figure out whether it is completely useless or slightly better than nothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was wanting. I have a Nikon D700 WITH battery grip... and the strap fits over it all perfectly. Comfortable and sturdy. Obviously I have to remove my hand from the strap when shooting vertically (if I want to use the shutter release on the grip) but I wasn't concerned with that when I bought it. I mostly wanted it for ease of portability with shooting and not having a big neck strap. Perfect for daily/casual use. Might re-attach my neck strap when shooting weddings. But enjoy it for portrait sessions. Would definitely recommend. Great product for a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, functional, good value. Currently use this grip on a Canon 40D. Fairly easy to install. Bottom plate has rubber grip that prevents it from slipping after the wheel is tightened. I can just loosen the bottom plate and swing it off to the side to access the battery compartment very easily. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the quality of this product. The only downside is that there's no clean way to use this grip and a neck strap at the same time.
