Another vote for the Luma Cinch. I've used it for a few months now and I love how comfortable it is and how it fits snug when I need it to. I have used it on half-day hikes and walking around town all day without any complaints. I also have the op/tech strap that others have mentioned here. The op/tech is a good strap, especially for the price, but it is definitely not as comfortable. Also, when doing a lot of walking or some hiking, you constantly have to adjust the position of the camera as it will swing around, or you just have to hold the camera in place with your hands. For me, the luma cinch was well worth the extra money. I will be using the op/tech on my back-up camera though.

Crumpler Popular Disgrace works great with m4/3 and other compact cameras. Theres also the included string connectors for P&S like Ricoh GRD, Sigma, etc..

Been shooting for a few weeks now with my DIY bag attachment and it's by far the most comfortable way to shoot for me. I have the security of a strap when shooting, minus the bulk, and the security of a bag when not shooting. Quickly being able to shoot strap free is totally awesome. LOVE going strap free (mostly).

I love my Sun Sniper Strap Pro (external link) and the extra safety and security of having a steel cable running through the whole strap. It also has a shock-absorber built into the strap which helps on long hikes.

very close to the carryspeed strap. The carryspeed comes with the safety strap (in this your case the optech) by default.

@charlie
I have a Carryspeed strap as back-up strap, just waiting for my Rapidstrap to give up.

Just received my Luma Labs Cinch today!

Not a bad strap, better than my OEM canon strap haha. I just wish they have more padding's on the shoulder more. I'm 5'5 and the strap doesn't snug fit right onto my left shoulder when I have it strap across from me and pulled all the the way down. Anyone has that problem or is it me?

Optech. Simple... just the right amount of bounce,comfort and bulk (easy to stow away), inexpensive and reliable... and doesn't hang up when I raise my camera to my eye (camera is carried cross shouldered). I shoot with 2 camera and often I need to get the shots in a very limited time so I wouldn't accept any "issues" with a strap, when switching cameras. I see no reason to replace the Optech with anything else. It works flawlessly for me.
