    Using Matin. I find the original strap very rough and it hurts my neck.

    actually the orginal strap should be kept unused so that when u sell the camera you will make the buyer happy he not going to use your smelly soggy neck strap.

    Exactly my sentiments!

    I use some generic neoprene strap that I bought from EastGear when they were still at Peninsula Plaza. Still use it now.

    I got a real dislike for the clips. I know some people like them for some perceived convenience... but to me its a vulnerability that I do not need.

    So I stick to the original straps even though I hate the wordings on them.
