I've seen some DSLR cameras with straps near the grip. Where can I purchase one for a 40D?

Ebay has them all the time, just avoid the ultra cheap ones as the suck IMO. I have used them but find them to be a pain when shooting in portrait. I prefer to wrap the neck strap around my arm several times to prevent accidental dropage.

Canon calls them the E-1 Hand Strap.

That strap works only with the battery grip.
Others work with out the grip.
Most are called SLR hand straps.
I got one off E-Bay for about $10 total. Waiting for it now, I just want to see if I like the feel.

That's what I do too. It works well enough with my op-tech neck strap, and then I always have the neck strap when I want to wear it around my neck too.

I do the same.

I also have an E-1 hand strap which I got for my 350D+BP, but to me it is not as comfortable. The reason I didn't like it was that you have to put your hand in at a more horizontal angle than what I like, it then became difficult to reach both the main command dial with the index finger, and the AE and focus point buttons with the thumb.

Or the Hakuba LH. You don't need any grip or adapter:

Exact same thing I do
