This arrived well presented and packaged with simple and easy-to-follow instructions. The product itself is well-made and has a quality of finish appropriate to its price-point. The mounting plate fixes securely to the camera, and clips equally securely to the B-Grip, meaning there is no worry about the camera falling off. Also, the mounting plate has two holes, so you can adjust the position of the mounting screw and therefore how the plate fits to the camera body.

However, if you have a reasonably sizeable and heavy SLR don't fool yourself into thinking it will be the solution to the problem of easy access, convenient hands-free camera carrying whilst back-packing - it isn't. With a Nikon D300 and 18-200mm lens mounted the weight and bulk is really too much to make this a practical proposition in use. The sheer bulk of the camera and lens when mounted on the B-Grip means it projects too far from the body when belt-mounted, and drags too much on the belt, to make this a carrying arrangement you can really walk far with. Also, certainly with the back-packs I've got, the option of mounting it on the upper straps at chest level as shown in some of the product illustrations, is equally impractical for the same reasons.

On the other hand, I can imagine that with a smaller, lighter DSLR or advanced compact camera it would work very well. Meanwhile, back to the search for a convenient hands-free easy access camera-carrying solution....

In brief, this makes photography (especially when walking/hiking etc) much more enjoyable. (And can even be used with tripods)

For background, I have a pentax K20D, which weighs 790g (body only) so on the heavier side, and then usually either a standard zoom or a prime (heaviest lens: Tamron 90mm - 400g).

I wasn't sure how comfortable I'd find this on my belt, but have to say I find it much more comfortable on my belt than around my neck. (To be honest, I was surprised by the other review saying it wasn't so good for a Nikon 300 and 18-200. That's not a lot heavier than mine and, as I say, I prefer having it on my belt than around my neck.)

Obviously, for big telephoto lenses, it may be different. But I can't imagine they're particular comfortable around the neck either.

Also, if you want to use it with a battery grip, and/or a flash, it may not be so good (not because of the weight, but because of how it would sit) - the spiderpro holster may be better for that. (That said, I have just tried it with my flash, and it feels fine - maybe just looks a bit odd with the flash sticking out, but then its not much different with a neck strap either. I don't have a battery grip though so can't try that.)

For anyone else though, the b-grip is half the price of the spiderpro, and is held more solidly without swinging.

With a neck strap, walking at any sort of speed, the camera swings so then I'd end up holding it (but still around my neck, so awkward to hold) or I'd just take it off and hold it, but then the strap is dangling (and useless).

Walking with this is so much nicer.

I also like the built in stand for the camera.

As a professional photographer, I very often need to carry two cameras on my person. I like to carry my main camera using a wrist cord, and my second camera would be attached to a neck strap. Whilst this is acceptable in reasonably static circumstances, it can be a pain (literally), when in a more mobile scenario.

When I first saw this product advertised in a photographic magazine, I immediately saw it's potential. I actually used it first on a photo shoot aboard a racing yacht as a holder for my only camera that day, a Canon 1ds mkII, a very heavy camera! I was able to move around the craft easily, and unclip the camera when necessary. To say that my large Canon camera was unobtrusive when not in use is a BIG plus for the B-Grip.

The B-Grip lost one star from my rating only on price. Quite a lot of money for a tripod bracket, a piece of plastic and a canvass belt (I actually attach it to my own leather belt).

However, it is a great idea, and something I will use constantly. B-Grip is a must for any active photographer.

I bought the B-Grip a few weeks ago and used it for short periods until yesterday, when my wife and I took a friend's year-old child Isla away for the day to the beach and parks. I used the B-Grip throughout, a bit nervously at first, but then with confidence as it became clear the security was 100%. I could bend down, carry the youngster, sit on the stony bank of the river, throw stones in the water, and generally enjoy the day as if I had no camera with me, without any problems. But at all times I was hands free and could within seconds remove the camera to get shots of Isla. I used a Sony 450, a medium-sized DSLR and it worked excellently; the Grip may be a bit cumbersome with larger kit (eg, a camera with flash, a battery pack or simply a larger camera such as the Sony 700).

The B-Grip is excellent and I will certainly be using it whenever possible, including on holiday and when out walking (including on the hills), cycling etc. A great product.
