think puttees vs. gaiters, same thing :laugh:
I like wrist straps for street photography. I also use a more discreet (ie, smaller and quieter) camera.
For all else, I use a neck strap.
Be careful of any strap with those steel rings. I once wore halfway through one of the lugs on a Leica M4 using a neck strap with a ring that had squared off edges, if that makes sense.:pinch:
At the risk of being scoffed at, there is some logic in using the bottom half of a case to which the neckstrap is attached. This way there is no wear on the lugs on the camera, and in some instances the fact that a case surrounds the camera makes it quieter -- seems to work that way for my Leica IIIa. And of course the (replaceable) case takes the wear that would otherwise be inflicted on the body.
I like the idea of the lug mount. I feel that the camera would be more secure being held onto by a 1/4-20 threaded screw. The issue is that all my cameras have lugs, but not all have tri-pod mounts like my Yashica Electro 35G.
For the time being, I have my camera attached to a basic wrist strap that P/S come with. Mind you this is only temporary! Just a test run to see how I like it.
