My RZ camera came with the original strap, the one that fits over the metal studs near the front. This arrangement is unbalanced and makes it difficult to carry the camera while just walking around. It also seems to put too much weight on the neck if the camera is carried for a long time. Is there a better solution?
This sin't really a 'walking around' camera so much, though it's do-able. I know that the lugs on the camera that the strap attaches to are faceted so that the strap can be positioned in three ways, one of them with the camera pointing lens down (or up). Maybe a little better balanced for you. Another solution would be to find a pack mule somewhere. It's a heavy camera.
Brilliant, of course I miss the obvious and never thought of carrying the camera vertically. Thanks Inlitero, this easily justifies the cost of membership. The stud and clip system is a bit odd and takes some getting use to, but I seems to actually work. Thanks.
I put mine on the tripod and the tripod over the shoulder. If going handheld, it nestles quite well in the crook of one arm.
