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.
Excerpt: I can't stand clunky neck straps, and when I've tried to wrap them around my wrist, they looks ridiculous. This hand strap does the job. I feel like it safely secures the camera to my hand and it really helps prevent fatigue if you're doing long shoots or walking around with your camera (i.e. hiking). The padding is also very comfortable. I also appreciate that they put a 1/4 inch coupler at the bottom so you can still attach it to a monopod/tripod!
Pros: Adjustable, Comfortable, Does not Chafe, Strong Construction, Well Padded
Excerpt: I removed my neck strap because I rarely used it. Holding my 70D felt insecure so I ordered this strap. It took a while adjusting and readjusting I finally got it just right to fit my small hand.
Excerpt: I got tired of the neck strap flopping around and purchased this strap for use on a Canon 70d with a 70-200mm lens attached the majority of the time. Overall the product works well. It is easy to install and looks good. My main complaint so far is that I noticed(thank goodness), that the locking latch on top of the hand pad comes unlatch sometimes. I just make sure I periodically check it to make sure it's still locked down.
Excerpt: I have done away with the Canon neck strap and am using a Black Rapid setup. I use a Kirk mount attached to the Camera, and have a Kirk QCR1 clamp on the Black Rapid Strap. The Canon Hande Strap attaches nicely to the camera this way. There are times I do not feel like using the Black Rapid, but want more security than simply holding the bare camera. This hand strap gives quite a bit more protection than simply holding the camera by the grip.
Pros: Adjustable, Comfortable, Does not Chafe, Well Padded
Excerpt: I wanted to try a hand strap to see if it might help reduce the fatigue in my hand during a lengthy shoot. I've attached the strap to my 5DIII with battery grip. It's not clear from the text or photos how this works with a neck strap. It does. The metal adjustment clip for the top of the camera has an extra slot designed to take the end of your neck strap. Works just fine. It took some work to make the hand strap as short as I wanted, but I have it there now.
Pros: Adjustable, Comfortable, Strong Construction
