How many of you use your camera strap? Do you guys/girls put it around your neck, or do you rap it around your wrist twice? Or do you just say I don't need a strap I got a death grip and my camera is glued to my hands?


I thought my pentax k100d was amazing.......till I got my 10D

I always use the strap, but not the Canon one.

ALWAYS! Insurance or not, I would feel really stupid if I dropped it. And in warm weather with sweaty palms, it is better off out of my grip. I use an aftermarket neoprene padded strap.

I hate the strap..I prefer to wrap it around my wrist 2 or 3 times and lock it around my thumb. If something pulls my camera out of my hand it's taking my hand with it :lol:

I use my strap sometimes. I got a Crumpler strap--much more comfortable than the Canon one--and it doesn't broadcast the exact make and model to the world. Sometimes it is around my neck, sometimes over my shoulder, sometimes wrapped around my wrist and sometimes just downright in the way.

90% of the time I have no neck strap. I use the Canon aftermarket one with the small quick release buckles. almost always they are snapped together and the neck strap stays in the bag.


If you must know...

I have the Canon wrist strap to make the "death grip..." poll option more comfortable. I selected my shoulder bags based on being able to get the camera in and out easily.

Almost always around my wrist at least twice. I've always done this since shooting SLRs.
And if it isn't around my wrist then the other 3% of the time its around my neck, but that hurts using the 24-70L
Its way too easy to get bumped in the elbow and have your hand open and drop the camera.

If I'm just taking pictures around the house, I tend to not use a strap at all. When I'm out, I've usually got it on an R-Strap. I love that thing!
