Excerpt: I purchsed this canon strap because i got a new camera and wanted the same on I have on my original and I do not like it as well as the first. Its way more bulky and isnt easy to attach on either end.
Excerpt: Glad I went with the Canon product for my 70d. With the battery grip on the camera, the hand strap works a lot easier for retaining the camera and switching between landscape and portrait photographs than the stock neck strap. I took the stock neck strap off and attached it to the not needed tripod mount from the hand strap. So I can hang the camera from my neck via the tripod mount if desired.
Excerpt: This strap gives the shooter a firm grip on the camera increasing hand held stability and thus sharper photos. Easy to carry around one handed if required (not recommended). A must have if you are shooting on the move.
Excerpt: The E1 hand strap on my T3i body with battery grip made the rig so much easier to hold and carry, that when I bought my new 7D mark II with battery grip, another hand strap was an essential item to purchase. The E2 hand strap loops directly into the battery grip on the bottom. If you're not using a grip, there is a removable tripod adapter that screws into the camera's tripod socket.
Excerpt: I've used the Canon E1 hand strap for awhile now. I decided to get another hand strap for my other body (5d mark III). Unfortunately Canon stopped making the E1, and the @ knock offs aren't in the same league. The E2 is the next best thing - works well, and I don't need any additional gizmos to attach it to the bottom of the camera.The E2 is not quite as comfortable as the E1, but they're close. The E2 has the attachment for non-pro bodies and is easier to adjust.
Excerpt: Great if you have all of your settings locked in. Adjustable. However, my hands are smaller and dialing down/up I have to remove my hand from the strap or loosen it to make adjustments. I still use it though. Also, you can only use it in place of the shoulder strap as there is only one attachment point on the camera. (I attach it to the camera and then attach the shoulder strap to it.
