    Default Handgrips

    Don't know where to post this so I've posted it here.

    What good does a handgrip do? What's the purpose of the handgrip? How does it differ from neckstrap for it's usage?

    Hope someone can share his/her experience.

    A handgrip is just to get a better grip and feel when u're taking pics. For me a neckstrap is just convenience for carrying your camera around when taking pics.

    It does help a bit though, you can simulate the effects by curling up the neckstrap around yr wrist and then holding the cam. I feel this way is more stable.
