"put it down on a table / seat / chair / somewhere" ? I do that, or sling it on one shoulder.

I only use neck straps when shooting event or outdoor, so for short brake I just sling it, longer brake will put down the camera.

for studio I don't have strap, so just put down the camera.

I try not to use my right hand to hold/carry my camera when I'm not shooting, either using left hand or rest the lens on my left hand forearm with camera body against my body. since I need to shoot long hours and I'm use camera with MB and pro lens, some time with flash, the set up is rather heavy.

or maybe just a lot of room!

Actually if I don't hold it, I'll put it in the bag around my waist.
so u referring to your compact camera just now? or your pocket super size?

Err... What if I vary my style from time to time? Haha... I mean, I don't really recall a fixed way of handling my camera...

Hang on my neck if short break of a few mins, longer than that I will sling on my shoulder...

OP/Tech strap makes it very comfortable... :D
