I think it depends on what you do with your camera, Ralph. In another thread you mentioned the danger of dropping glass bottles in the darkroom. When I am hopping around with my camera out in the middle of nowhere, a strap makes sense. Putting it in and out of the bag every few minutes is a nuisance. And a smashed Blad would make me a lot sadder than 500mls of XTOL on the floor...
