Average product; Will prevent occurrence of pain to some extent but not eliminate it completely
21 May 2019
I have purchased both hand strap and sling strap from AmazonBasics. Before shelling 10k plus (combined) on such products on Videolinks we wanted to try something in budget. Like any other accessory in photography world even this product is overpriced but at least it is cheap.
The problem statement for me was that anytime we travel on long trips my partner develops pain in his wrist and fingers as he is clicking pictures for extended periods. Using the AmazonBasics shoulder strap for support was not enough in silo. This hand strap provides some level of cushioning and support to wrist/ fingers. It is not perfect and I wasn't expecting it to be perfect in this price point. You will have to spend some time adjusting it to a position as per your body structure. It took me 30 minutes to do the same. If you suffer from similar pain the extent will reduce but will not be eliminated completely. As a workaround to this situation my partner wears a carpel tunnel wrist splint in night time (once in a while on long trips) coupled with usage of hand strap & shoulder strap in day time. This solution seems to work for now.
