    negative. i took mine off and instead i use the wrist band that came with my sony walkman CD player that i got for christmas in 97. the neckstrap is bulky and this way i will never drop it or get it snagged on something.

    Yes, but I'm looking for a good hand strap. Probably go with the Markins. It's expensive, but looks nice and comfy.

    a lefty eye, eh?



    Always on, not always around my neck. More often around my shoulder and wrapped around my wrist or something. Hard to explain.

    strap went on mine when it came out of the box and has been on there since. ..except when I'm not using mine I stick my arm through and let it hang at my side.

    You know this :coold:, Fuck dress shoes, Have you ever tried to crouch down like that on a dance floor with dress shoes, I slip around like a moron.
     
  23. I wear dress shoes to work and weddings all the time. I never had a problem..

    It may be a problem for rednecks and gangstas though. :mamoru:
     
  24. Oh and no, I took my strap off a long time ago. Even the past few weddings I didn't bother putting the strap on. I see people get lazy when they have their camera on a strap. they just let it hang... then you see them bumping their shit into walls and everything else. :o At least if you have your camera in your hand you know where it is and you concentrate on not getting you shit messed up. That's me anyways. :dunno:

    Plus the strap is ALWAYS annoying as hell, it seemed like every time I picked up the camera to take a shot I had to first move the strap off the lens so I could zoom/focus. And tripods... forget about it, using a camera with a strap on a tripod is a nightmaire(sp?).
