I'm with Neuro and Spokane, Shoulder strap is the only way to go, forget about the neck or hand straps... I use "Carry Speed" shoulder straps on my 7d and my 5d3 and wouldn't think of leaving home without them! As Spokane said, you can go all day with them on, without issue or discomfort and added safety for your gear, at least in my opinion anyway... Good luck!Mt Spokane Photography said:

Ditto, except I use the BR wrist strap instead of the Canon hand strap.neuroanatomist said:
Any of them will be great. I've never seen the Metro. With the price of camera gear being what it is, I tend to lean to the overkill side, so I would get any of the regular BR straps. I use the RS Sport, but they're all good.Dantana said:Been thinking about picking up a BR. Currently have a Rebel with a Click wrist strap (just in case). I have the feel of a neck strap.
Since I use a smaller body, and I am usually using smaller lenses (most of the time, not always), 35 2.0, 85 1.8, which BR would be the best choice? Is the new Metro for even smaller gear like m43?
Thanks in advance for the input.

The RSS L-bracket stays permanently attached to the grip on my 5DIII. I have a 1" clamp permanently attached to the BR shoulder strap.
There are three basic scenarios.
Either the camera (with grip and L-bracket) is mounted to a tripod (either via L-bracket or lens mount), in which case there's no strap attached to it.
Or I'm hand-holding the camera with the grip attached and the BR shoulder strap attached to either the L-bracket or the lens mount.
Or I'm going lightweight and I've removed the grip (but left the L-bracket attached to the grip) and I've attached the RSS wrist strap to the camera's tripod lug. And I'm almost guaranteed to be shooting with the Shorty McForty.
