Hand strap only. The neck strap just made shooting so uncomfortable for me, that I would rather just not use the camera at all if the strap was attached... And since I love to take pictures, I had to find an alternative. :)

Neck only (with an additional strap on the 300 2.8 when I use that).

Neck strap. If the camera's out of the case, the strap's around my neck. To me, it's insurance.

I don't use straps anymore, not since getting a Cotton Carrier. Took the straps off my 40D and one 20D the day I got the CC, and haven't needed them since. The only strap left is the one on the second 20D, which I left on because my wife sometimes uses that camera, and I didn't want to let her use it without a strap.


Otherwise, I'm strap free and lovin' every minute of it.

Depends on what I'm shooting:
Football games, the 2nd body is on a strap (Shoulder?) RS-7
Indoor sports, no strap
Walking about, either neck or shoulder strap, maybe in a Lowepro top loader

A friend just got a spider carrier, which he says "handles big lenses" better than the cotton carrier.

Strapless. It shows of my sholders!

I only have the strap when it will be in my hand all day. I dont me a 3 hour shoot, as all day. I mean like theme park trip all day. And even then it is wrapped arround my wrist most of the time not arround my neck. As soon as I get home I take it rignt back off.

It's probably the single best photography-related purchase I've ever made.

Neck. Even though I hold the camera and only use the neck strap on my shoulder when I'm not shooting.
