Beats the neck strap Hands down !

Comments about BlackRapid Wrist Strap with FastenR FR-3:

I just recently purchased a Canon G5x from B&H to partner with my Canon 5D MK3. I thought the neck strap on a small camera would be fine. With my neck fusions I am very touchy about things around the back of my neck. I ordered the Black Rapid wrist strap . I love it. Why doesn't Canon offer these. Neck straps are awful !
I also use the Black Rapid Sport on the big 5D MK 3. With the Black Rapid products I feel secure in my carry and comfortable all day . Get one Now !

Another alternitive to shoulder straps or neck straps

Comments about BlackRapid Wrist Strap with FastenR FR-3:

I have been using mine for a few years now so I have enough experience with this strap. Not the best for heaveir set ups like Full Frame bodies and Tele lenses. But very good for my D750 and "G" Prime lenses all day long or lesser weight. Like mirrorless for sure. My fingers did feel the pressure or pain of Tamron 15-30 VC on D750 after two or three hours the first time, second time things where easier to manage but not recomended since the weight was a bit much to get use to easily. Seems over priced at first but look at the ratings and know your equipment will never drop with Black Rapid ever. Love the adjustible strap, Steel clasp and pivot points. The best there is periord.

Working well with a Nikon D750

      Comments about BlackRapid Wrist Strap with FastenR FR-3:

      I bought this because I find neck straps to cause shoulder pain. I shoot mainly prime lenses (1.8g varieties) and my heaviest lens is the Nikon 24-120 f4. At first, I fastened it to the tripod mount, but then I purchased the Ruggard fasteners (see recommended accessories) and I run two of these through the strap mount on the camera. This keeps my tripod mount free for the tripod base. I use two fasteners in case one fails. I'm concerned this arrangement might rub the side of the camera, but so far, so good. I usually keep my fingers on the grip as I walk and have the strap for safety. When I let it dangle I feel confident in the strap and fastener's stability.

                I couldn't be happier with my BlackRapid Wrist Strap. I love my video camera but when the strap broke it became awkward to handle. The BR Wrist Strap is the best in construction, price, and fit.

                    This is an excellent, well manufactured product that is over engineered for my use. I work with one camera / lens combo in my hand. I never hang the camera on the strap, but use the strap in case of a slip or bump. A lighter weight karabiner and strap will work better for me. A bit noisy, but an fine product. The tripod lugs are very good, and with a different clip / strap (which I will make) will work very nicely. Your use may be different - I would recommend it.

                            The Black Rapid Wrist Strap w/ FastenR FR-3 is a must have when you want a secure hold on your camera without feeling like your strapped in for a bungee jump. The black material is strong and the fastener attaches tightly to any camera's tripod mount. No more spills in water or hard pavement and it even comes with a Lockstar Carabiner Protector that I wasn't expecting. It's perfect for shooting on the fly. I would purchase this for all my camera's.

                                I really like the idea of a wrist strap, and this one has worked well for me. I do a lot of street photography and I feel much freer using a wrist strap rather than a strap that goes around your body. Another great thing about this is I also have the Black Rapid strap that goes around the body, so I bring both when I'm out shooting and can easily change between the two. The only reason I give it four stars is I think this wrist strap is not quite there -- the construction could be more sturdy, thick, etc. But overall, I do recommend this.

                                I've had this strap for almost a month attached to my a6000 and love it. Very well made strap and comfortable. I will probably purchase the shoulder strap for long outings.

                                I purchased both the Black Rapid Sport and Wrist Strap at the same time as I believe I will use the wrist strap on shorter shoots, which has been the case so far, and the BR Sport for longer outings. The wrist strap feels like a quality piece and so far has provided great support to my 5DM3 with a rather heavy 24-70 lens. I have large hands and the strap, which is adjustable, fits me fine. The connector pice that screws into the tripod mount of your camera seems very strong and secure. I am very happy with my purchase so far. Thanks for the quick shipping and great service B&H!

                                    I've used wrist straps in the past, but they have been flimsy, spongy, Neoprene ones that I've never been fully confident in. I always felt like they would tear apart with minimal effort.But this BlackRapid Wrist Strap is everything I ever wanted in a wrist strap. Easy to get on and off, and it's built like it could lift an engine block.

                                    I looked at, and tried just about every hand strap out there and could never find one I liked. I use this on a Nikon D800. Even with heavy glass like 24-70, 70-200, this works great for me. I hate standard shoulder straps and prefer to just hold the camera and lens for most shoots. I use the shoulder sling when I need hands free and can have the camera at about waist level. Also works great,with my Manfrotto 200 QR plates. I can leave hand strap attached.
