    My favorite straps were a wide blue on black Minolta strap, a narrow Nikon strap with a wide strap for around the neck, a wide Tamron strap, a wide Hasselblad strap and a narrow Hasselblad strap.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I got an upstrap when I switched from Nikon to Canon, and I love it. Kevlar is, quite simply, awesome.

    I use the same strap, but I have zip-tied the "quick release" buckles together as I don't trust 'em with my (heavy) Nikon F3HP with MD4 motordrive and zoom lens.

    Can't say I have much of an opinion on lens straps, can't say I care for the really thin ones, I tend to use straps about an inch wide, depends on the size of the camera, on my Bronica I have an elasticated one!

    The UP Strap is the only way to go.............

    I have tried many different versions of the OP-Tech variety, but not one keeps the camera on my shoulder like the UP Strap.

    Note: This applies to 35mm/DSLR only. I rarely use a strap with the Hasselblad, but their wide strap is the one I like best.

    Nikon AH-4 hand strap

    My F100 and D200 both have Nikon AH-4 hand straps, which slip on like a glove. Highly adjustable, fast to use, very secure, and much less noticeable in a crowd. You can relax your hand and let your wrist take the weight while carrying, avoiding tiring and finger cramps. Allows quick reaction and complete freedom of movement while framing and shooting. They are the only really high quality hand straps I've found, and I wasted money on several cheaper versions before I finally paid $65 each for a pair of these from a Hong Kong dealer. Expensive and hard to find, and worth every penny.

    For rangefinders and lighter cameras I use various permanently-installed (not snap-together) neck straps, which are fine when around your neck, but don't ever carry a camera around in your hand with the neck strap dangling from it. The strap is positively guaranteed to catch on something as you pass by, snatching it instantly from your relaxed grip. My wallet and I learned that lesson the hard way a long time ago.
