Luma cinch.

Just ordered one of these for my 5Dii. Looks like the perfect strap. Hope it works like it looks.

I use a black rapid if I will be walking around more than 30 minutes or so, otherwise, I go strapless.

I've always used the included strap but hate neck straps. So I always did the double-wrap around my right wrist. Really liked it around the wrist but didn't like the wrist straps or the hands straps that screw into the tripod mount hole, so kept using it.

Went without a strap on the new camera for a month and was fine after it feeling weird for a few days.

Decided to suck it up and get a hand strap. Really like it so far.

I use the Cinch with the tripod quick release plate option. I don't think it's officially for sale yet... .but Greg worked it out so I could get it when I ordered the accessory "PodMount"... so it cost an extra $15. It works perfectly.

Both of my cameras have Crumpler Industry Disgrace straps. They are WAAYYY better than the stock canon straps. I also have my BlackRapid for certain situations. I recommend both products.

BlackRapid RS-4. I walked around all day with it, and it was so much better than a normal strap. I wanted to try the Luma Cinch, but it was a little more than I wanted to spend on a strap, and I didn't really want to wait a few weeks for it either.

I like my handstrap, comfortable and takes up no room when putting the camera back in the bag. I ordered the Op-Tech Utility Strap Sling ($24) to try out and damn if it isn't comfortable and convenient. Shoulder pad stays put and keeps your hands free. I have been using it now for about three weeks and really like it. The only down side that I have found is the extra space required when putting the camera back in the bag. For the price, I think its a steal. Also, if your tall you may require an extension as I am 6'3" and it just fits perfect with it fully extended.

I've always had it on since day 1. But after reading through this thread, I'm probably gonna pick up either the BR strap or Cinch. Decisions decisions. This forum doesn't help the wallet that's for sure

I was never particularly fond of Canon's straps as I thought they provided little support and were nothing more than another advertisement for them. I used Domke straps for many years (still have a few of them around as spares) and they held up surprisingly well, but I liked that their zero bulk allowed me to quickly wrap them around my wrist while shooting and have the strap out of the way while still keeping my camera secure "just in case".

However, several months ago I tried out a Wapiti strap and I haven't looked back! It's an exceptionally comfortable strap for both of my cameras, yet thin enough to wrap like I would with my Domkes. I don't like bulky straps, but I do like having something on the camera (considering I don't always want to have it in my hands if I'm walking, or perhaps climbing something outdoors.)

I highly recommend them personally and I will happily continue to use them on my cameras.
