I am using a leather one, bought from CSier perly. S$48.
One thing about this that I like, can remove the neck strap, as it has a additional clip lock to tie it to your wrist.
The one thing that don't like, if you too engrossed in your shooting, your hand will be bound stiff. And if you need to reach your bag to change lens, your right hand is locked by the clip-lock, and everything else is one-hand-operation. It is not like your neck strap that you can just let go and do something else with your pair of hands...
Now that I have used it, if I have a choice, will I reconsider my decision ? I will get it..
im thinking of bombing some money into that grip thingy for the 20d and that strap thingimagig, i feel i really seldom hang my camera on my neck, i just chuck it in my bag, and when i shoot, the strap will either go between my eye and the viewfinder or block the lens! uh! i feel silly when that happens.
Yes, you are right. When you sling by the neckstrap, your camera grip and shutter button will be at the bottom. But the zing is straped upright as a normal SLR/DSLR neckstrap, 'cos it has an additional loop for the neckstrap at the shutter button end where the handgrip is fitted.
