    Why attach the flash?

    2F/2F,

    The camera is easier to hand hold with the handle mount flash even though the flash adds weight. A strap, handle combination is worth the extra weight.

    I own an RZ, and I disagree. An RB/RZ is very easy to "cradle" without a handle, and it is even more comfortable this way than holding the whole thing from the side with one hand. A flash adds bulk and gangliness, which is what will make the camera seem "strange" to people, and all the weight is on one side, which skews the camera. A strap alone over the neck or shoulder will do fine, and the camera will not stick out as much. They aren't that heavy, just bulky. Anything you can do to reduce the bulk will keep it more low profile. Keep a WLF on in instead of a prism, and don't accessorize it. YMMV, of course.

    Well since you already have the answer I wonder why you even bothered to ask the question? FOR ME, the flash handle is more convenient. For you, it's not. I like it because it keeps the camera from banging into my chest. When I want to carry it I can do so with one hand. That thing is so boxy it's hard to get a good grip on it. I imagine if I had a grip that would be even better. A grip would also add weight but it serves a purpose.

    I asked because you are embarrassed to take the thing out, yet wanted to put a flash on it. In other words, I asked it as a question that you might want to ask yourself.

    I'm not really embarrassed. Was just making light of MF.

    The bigger the camera the more fun it is!
