What is the best way to fold the strap when you have a grip? I want to keep my neck strap on, but I will want to get a hand grip soon. As such I know I've seen neck straps tied down over the hot shoe or other various ways. How do you do it with ease for removal? Is their a product on the market to make it easier?

Thanks

I bought a neck strap with detachable clips. The attaching points hook on the the strap bars with split-ring connectors. These 2-inch straps remain on the camera. Then, when I want to use the neck strap, I snap it into the clips on the end of the short straps and off I go. A quick squeeze of the clips, and it's off, folded and back in my bag.

Be careful of those split rings. They will chew your camera finish up faster than anything.

Wrap them in electrical tape once you get your strap on. It won't be the prettiest, but it will help to soften the contact between the ring and the camera.

To date, I have not seen any undue wear from the split rings, but I certainly understand your concern. Probably because I rarely use the neck strap, so they don't carry weight very often.
