I treat my cameras like a woman. While they’re with me they’re very special and I take every precaution to protect them. So I always use a strap and carry the camera over the neck. That way you can’t drop it, or have it ripped out of your hand and gone, baby, gone. Also with the camera hanging from the neck it’s always ready to use.
Of course when they get old and unreliable I dump them faster than you can say: “You’re outa‘ here!”
