I use the strap sometimes, when I need both hands between shots.

I have the strap over my shoulder. Although I'm probably going to get the cotton carrier, because I usually take two cameras to a shoot.

when I remember I put it over my shoulders but it is usually around my neck. I have a fear of dropping my camera or it being knocked out of my hands by my three year old...

I virtually always use camera straps. On my shoulder, on my neck... occasionally wrapped around my forearm/wrist.

The one on my 5D2 is a Canon CPS strap that was made by OpTech. On my other cameras I use other OpTech mostly. I will no longer use the Canon straps that ship with the cameras. They suck. I had a lot of neck and back problems that cleared up for the large part shortly after I stopped using the Canon and started using OpTech (or similar) on everything.

Around my neck, around my shoulder, whatever works. If I am working with 2 bodies then I usually have one around my neck and the other around my right shoulder.

accidentally clicked "death grip"...meant to click "wrist strap".

Can't stand having a big hunk of metal banging against my chest.

But the real reason probably stems from how I held a Bell and Howell DR70 - a wrist strap was how it was designed to be held, and also made for a very secure and effective defensive weapon!

Wow, what a nice picture! You must have a really great camera!

It depends. I like having it on a strap around my neck when I'm changing lenses and/or walking around at an 'event' and want to have my camera at the ready.

Not the stock strap though. I think the ones I use are from Tamarac that clip onto stub straps that live on the camera so it's easy to remove during the times I'm not using it.

And since there wasn't a selection for "sometimes" and since I do happen to like hot chocolate ...

Always around my neck unless it's on a tripod. It drives nme crazy to see someone holding a camera with the strap hanging down. I have insurance but I'd rather not use it.
