Vello HGS-3 overview

  • 1Description

The HGS-3 Hand Grip Strap from Vello is designed for DSLR cameras with attached vertical battery grips. As an alternative to having your camera dangling from a long strap, it lets you keep your camera firmly in your hand--so that when you see a shot, all you have to do is raise the camera to eye level and capture it. The strap itself is constructed from nylon. The padded hand cushion has a durable leather outside and a soft, non-slip velvet inside for long-term comfort and a secure hold--without sacrificing maneuverability. When your fingers get fatigued, you can relieve them without having to put down the camera.

The hand grip strap attaches by threading through your camera's shoulder strap loop and the hand strap mount on the bottom of your grip. It is easy to install and remove, and its buckle enables adjustment of overall tension and length. Additionally, you can tuck the excess length of the strap into the grip's pockets.

Compatible with grips (or cameras that come with built-in grip, e.g. Canon 1D series) that include a strap mount on the bottom
Provides a firm grip to help prevent accidental dropping of camera or camcorder
One end attaches to camera's strap lug and the other to the vertical grip's lug
Fully adjustable

    HGS-3 Hand Grip Strap for DSLR Cameras with Vertical Battery Grips is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get this strap...could save your camera Great strap and comfortable. Just make sure you thread the strap properly especially if you have a heavy body and battery grip otherwise you risk having the rig slip out of your hand which is the whole point of getting that can't happen. Also take your time adjusting this as you install it. You want to make sure that there is enough slack to allow you to comfortably reach the shutter release etc. while your hand is in the strap. Great addition.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good secondary support Mainly use this to help with hand holding my Frankenstein macro rig as the stuff is too bulky to hang from my strap. Plus I don't want all that stuff swinging around. The placement of the strap does make it hard to hit the ISO button and use the shutter speed dial on my t2i. When tightened, it holds the camera tight against my hand. There is some sweatiness, but I expected that. Be warned, you NEED to have a battery grip installed for this to work. It does not attach to the tripod threads.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Canon EOS-1DX I was looking for a hand grip strap to replace the neck strap on my 1DX, and this one works perfectly. I like this strap as it doesn't get in the way when I rotate the camera between landscape and portrait shots. It is also easier to move through crowds at my kids sporting events (baseball, football, basketball, etc.) without the dangling neck strap. This strap is easy to install and the excess strap length can be tucked inside the strap guides for a nice, clean look.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from May not fit all Vello battery grips I have a D7100 with a Vello BG-N11 vertical battery grip. The HG3-3 cannot be attached to the grip because there is no slot for the strap. The HGS-3 might, however, work with other Vello model grips or possibly with a Nikon MB-D15. However, I don't have any other grips to try the HGS-3 with. The HGS-3 is a good quality made hand grip strap. B&H was kind enough to accept the return of this product for credit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vello HGS-3 Hand grip Probably one of the most useful accessories I have purchased for my 70D. I can walk around all day and my hands and fingers will not tire from holding my camera...I have big hands so I applied the HGS-3 and it is so comfortable. I am always prepared to take the picture in the field when shooting wildlife and birds. The leather adds charm to my equipment also.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well Using it without a battery grip. Have it connected to the capture plate from Peak Design to have a little extra security. Does the job and is comfortable. Too early to know how well it holds up. Twists a little on the strap but not a serious issue. Does a great job at a good price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good strap i used it for the first time this past week on a boat shoot in the bahamas on my 1dX mk 2. Its comfortable and worked great. It seemed to slowly loosen up slightly after a few days but its really not an issue. I highly recommend getting a hand strap for photo or video on DSLRs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from works pretty good I bought this for a Sony a7R camera which is quite small. The HGS-3 is a bit big for this camera but so are my hands so it worked out alright. Not in the same class as the Spider Holster hand grip which would be total overkill for the a7R..
