Product Description

Product Description

Whether you're splashing around in the backyard pool, snorkeling in the tropics or careering over whitewater rapids, keeping your waterproof digital camera secure can be a big hassle. And if you happen to drop it in the water (especially in natural environments), it's quite possible you've seen the last of your camera and all the memories contained within. But with this floating camera strap from JJC, you can rest easy knowing that your expensive camera will stay afloat* no matter how many times you let it slip away!

Designed for use with nearly any compact waterproof camera this strap is constructed of tough nylon, buoyant foam and durable plastic. Plus, the strap is adjustable to provide an additional measure of security.

* Note: Due to the nature of the product we advise all customers to test the floating strap in a controlled environment. Different environments will provide different results in bouyancy.

I gave it three stars, but would be five after the modification I describe below had it been as secure out of the box.

I read the reviews for this item available from various sellers, and under a couple of different names. A lot seem to say the float is good, but the attachment method is inferior. On receiving mine, I can say this IS the case. The thin cord that attaches it to the strap is just passed through the quick release clasp, and tied off with a knot with what looks like a bit of plastic tied into it to stop it coming loose. If this knot gives way you'll be left with the strap minus the camera. The quick release itself looks like it could come free too easily, or the mushroom part of the quick release could snap off easily. I gave the thin cord a reasonable tug, as it would get it the camera was dropped, or pulled hard in a current, and sure enough the knot gave way.

So a modification was in order. I cut through the plastic of the quick release clasp with decent scissors to leave me with just the floating webbing strap, took off the quick release and thin cord completely. Now, with the strap you'll have got with your camera, pass the camera strap through the webbing loop of the floating strap, then take the end of the camera strap up and over the end of the float, and pull down tight. You'll end up with the two straps connected together with what looks like a reef knot (clasped hands). Secure, and no way it can come loose now, and easy to push apart the knot should you want to remove the floating strap.

If you do this easy modification you'll end up with a secure strap with no worries of losing your valuable waterproof camera, or worse still, the memories it contains.

I haven't measured the actual buoyancy, but it's sufficient to keep my new Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT4 Camera from sinking, with enough orange above the waterline to spot it from a few metres away. And it looks better than my previous home-made attempt - a rope float on some nylon cord. There's a 5x price difference, but it's still small compared to the value of the camera.

The picture here doesn't show the join with the thin cord that connects to the camera, but Orange Foam Float Camera Strap appears to be the same product and its item page does show the connector. There is a slight rattle when connected; I might cut a piece from an old inner tube to make a gasket for the ~1mm play in this joint if it annoys me (or the wildlife) too much.

Wow, what a difference having something that works makes. Used this with a Fuji XP10 on holidays and had no problems what so ever. Previous reviews of similar products had all mentioned to be aware of the knot being loose on the string - this one was fine. Likewise other reviews had mentioned the quick release clip coming undone on it's own - this one stayed closed. As a precaution i added a small plastic karabina between the cameras original strap and the orange wrist band, just in case, but didn't need to rely on this. (For the sake of £2 i'd recommend this idea with any floating strap) There is no need to remove/undo any clips in order to take a photo.
I felt quite happy throwing my new camera to the kids in the sea and river. It happily supports the weight of the camera, and floats with the orange band visible above the surface - useful if the water is not clear. The wrist band is quite large - fits an adult wrist ok but loose on a child - however both kids (7 & 12yrs) had no problems with keeping the strap attached to them even though it was loose. For serious swimming the strap can be attached around the upper arm, as it stops the camera moving around as much.
Overall i'd recommend this to anyone wanting to take a waterproof camera into the water.

Wasn't quite sure about this at first but it does what it says. My waterproof camera is quite heavy but when dropped in the swimming baths with the float on it floats even dropped it in from height and still does the job. Highly recommended.

Perfect strap, floats my ft2 camera and let's me put my buoyancy aid strap through the handle easily. No more worrying about passing camera to others when on the water!

If you have a waterproof camera, this is an essential extra because waterproof cameras don't float. You could use any flotation device but this doubles as a comfortable wrist band and is a bright orange so hard to lose.

Works as a float but WAY too big for my wrists! Due to it having four 'segments' this makes it very big and plenty of people simply wouldn't have wrists fat enough to use it, even when pulled in as tight as it will go. This rendered it completely useless as it never stayed on my arm. It also didn't seem to have one drawstring that you pull in - mine had a tiny loop on one end and longer string on the other so it didn't really pull in properly anyway. Not sure if I had a duff one or not but I sent it back and went for a slightly more expensive one with only 3 segments and a proper drawstring and it worked perfectly. You get what you pay for I suppose.

This is not a JJC product. I purchased a JJC product previously and broke it (my fault, I was sandboarding with it - I survived, the strap did not). It worked well in the water.

The product that arrived was not the same. It was too big for any wrist so would not attach closely and the tie mechanism was not functional.

I have been promised a refund, but
