Just picked up a Canon SL1, in keeping with the compact size of the camera, any recommendation for a strap?

I have one of these. I really like it. Very confortable with a smaller camera.

I'm using a Crumpler Popular Disgrace on mine. It matches the Crumpler 4 Million Dollar Home bag that I carry the SL1 in. The strap is not bulky, lightweight, and comfortable.

Yeah, the Cinch is good for the 5D3. For the SL1, not so much. It's really overkill.

Massive overkill. I tell folks with small cameras to *not* buy the Cinch.

I would point out that the Crumpler Popular Disgrace includes plastic string fittings attached to each end of the strap. I believe these are designed to attach to a small lug on a P&S camera. I removed these from the strap, and looped the strap itself directly through the lugs on the SL1. This provided a much more secure connection.

FYI, Crumpler just came out with a new line of straps called "Boom". They appear to be similar to the Popular Disgrace, but without the neoprene pad. They are not widely available yet, but Adorama shows them for sale on their website.
