Almost but not quite up to the job.
on 6 August 2010
I always walk around with my EOS 400d at the ready with the long neck strap wrapped bulkily around my wrist and thought this hand strap would be more comfortable. Its so close but not quite there.
It doesnt fit quite as tidily as the picture suggests and its a bit on the snug side and I only have average size hands for a woman, a fella I think would start to lose cirulation. If the fabric part of the strap was just that bit longer it would give that bit more felxability, and fitting could be personalised with the velcro attachment.
Also it is almost impossible to use with a battery grip which I use frequenly to give the smaller body of the eos 400d better handling and balance. Finally for some reason the base attachment will not screw tightly into the bottom of the battery grip though it does into the bottom of the camera. This means you can't then attach a tripod quick release plate to use with a tripod successfully, although it works fine with a tripod without the battery grip.
So this item didnt suit my needs but if you dont have big hands and dont use battery grips much this stap should work just fine.
