The X100 weighs 15 ounces, I use a thin small strap
In reply to loekids, Jun 18, 2011

I use a strap borrowed from a tiny Canon

The strap is for drop prevention, I carry the camera not on my neck but in a pocket inside a padded pouch

Problems of neck carry:

1) makes you a tourist, vulnerable to anti-tourist muggings, very very common worldwide, specially in recessions
2) Makes you look like a photographer all the time

Nice pics, thanks for sharing.

Just a dumb question, but is the clip on that strap strong enough holding the X100's weight? is it the original strap? Seems clumsy from the pic, but don't know the actual quality.
