I have always had both neck and hand straps on my cameras. I couldn't have it any other way.

I never use a Canon strap as they are useless. Get yourself a good comfortable strap and ditch that Canon advertisement.

I thought about going with a black rapid but I like putting my camera in my bag when not in use and it's much easier just taking the strap off my neck and putting the camera into my bag.

Not quite sure what you mean, but I treat the blackrapid no other then the neck strap. I don't take it off and I just put my camera into the bag with the strap on, when not in use.
(not affiliated with them by no means, but very happy with this particular accessory for my camera).

I have the Op/Tech (external link) strap "system" on my cameras. It gives me a ton of options when carrying my camera. I especially like the sling (external link).

You need some sort of strap or carrier.

Why take a risk when you have thousands of dollars worth of sensitive precision machinery in your hands for hours at a time?

I wear my POTN strap, even when my camera is on my tripod.

Yup, me too. I have an extra-long strap that's always attached even when shooting on a tripod.

Nope. Never. Just don't like the extra stuff getting in the way.

Blackrapid or an ebay copy is the way forward, fantastic bit of kit and I would never go back to a neck strap.

+1. I have an ebay knockoff and it is very comfortable and works really well. The ones that come with the camera are garbage.

I haven't put my neck strap around my neck for years. I only use the strap around my arm.

I use Crumpler 'Industry Disgrace' straps on both the 1D4 and 5D. There are two main reasons:

1) Sometimes I use both bodies, so I have a strap to hang one from.
2) Sometimes I take a camera with me, but photogtraphy isn't the only thing I'm doing. Like vacations or hiking etc.

Even when I am pretty much just working at photography, I sometimes need my hands free. When I shoot a swim meet, I carry the roster and mark off who I shot in each event. Without a strap, I'd really struggle.

I use the same strap - it is so much better than the Canon strap and you can easily wear it around your neck all day, or throw it over the shoulder.
