Joby UltraFit Hand Strap with UltraPlate

I love DSLR hand straps. I love it as much as I hate neck straps. The only reason why I don't use one is because I couldn't find one that I really liked and one that is of good enough quality for me. And another reason: if you use a hand strap, you basically eliminate the use of a tripod.

Until now.

When Joby released the UltraPlate, I immediately jumped on the bandwagon knowing what a great little accessory it is. It essentially doubles the quarter-inch screw mount at the bottom of cameras giving you to the ability to use a messenger-type strap and still be able to mount your camera on a tripod.

Joby extended the idea by adding a hand strap to the UltraPlate: the UltraFit Hand Strap with UltraPlate was born.

The idea is simple: just screw the plate to the bottom of your camera and thread the other end of the strap to the camera's strap mount. Tuck the excess strap to the UltraFit's layered pad and that's basically it. Enjoy shooting!

What's more, since this hand strap uses an UltraPlate, you can still attach a messenger-type strap and mount your camera to a tripod: the Joby UltraFit Hand Strap is essentially three accessories in one!

One thing I'd like changed? Well, nothing really. The hand strap is perfect as it is. I just wish Joby would sell the strap independently of the UltraPlate so that the pioneers who bought the UltraPlate before would just need to add the strap to their arsenal and prevent duplication of the plates...

The Joby UltraFit Hand Strap with UltraPlate is Highly Recommended!

Check out the video the wife and I produced for this review:

Special thanks to the wife for helping me with the review. And I'd also like to give a very, very special thanks to Emily Voigtlander and Joby for providing the strap.
