    I use a 600d with 70-200 and I don't use any strap lol. Personal preference I guess. Can you handle the weight of the camera in one hand?

    Personal preference really. When I'm out for long hours with my camera out, I use my Blackrapid, when I just have the camera out for a few shots at a location, I don't even use a strap, haha.

    I use the original Nikon Wrist Strap with my F90X+MB, with 24-85 lens and SB28, the main reason is the reduce the stress on my hands and it does help.

    as for DSLR, since I don't need to keep holding the camera for long hours, so I don't use Wrist Strap nowadays.

    aye, personal preference. I use a hand strap too. And my gear is considerably much heavier than a 600D with a 50mm f1.8

    If you're really poor you'll only be affording a compact from some random brand. Go with what you think is comfortable. Or the standard strap just wrap it around your hand

    The handstrap I recommended above is only S$20. Well worth it.

    I've once considered a hand strap for the convenience, but that would depend on gear too.

    I can imagine a 5D Mark II with BG-E6 and a zoom lens set on my hand all the time.. my hand would break soon lol.

    It's fine, but a neck strap is generally more versatile, because I don't use a light lens on the camera all the time.

    yup, its a personal preference. personally, i love using a handstrap for most work. if i feel that i'd be carrying it for extended periods, i'd use my blackrapid sling strap. but for most uses, a handstrap is my fav. i personally cant stand neck straps. currently thinking of getting a canon E2 hand strap for my canon 500D, the 'matin' strap im using now (nikon copy, i think) covers the battery door with its base plate

    I actually considered it - but I decided that it was clumsy.

    Mine is a simple loop around the wrist. The link I previously posted has a picture.

    @TS

    I have one, same setup as well with additional battery grip attached. they're great for short-period of time. more than 30 minutes, it's hell. Therefore, always have your slingbag/backpack close to your body.

    sometimes you just miss having the neck/sling strap because of some activities calling for both hand.

    or try this, copy paste this on your youtube search bar : DSLR hand-strap! - HOW TO / DIY using a standard DSLR neck-strap!

    I preferred not to use any strap, rather just hold firm to the camera & don't need it, just put in my shoulder bag.
