The best shoulder strap for this camera or any other 35mm camera is the Black Rapid with underarm brad which keeps the strap from slipping off the shoulder. Do not use the screw-in fastener that comes with the strap. Rather, purchase a Really Right Stuff clamp and a RRS L bracket. Then you will be able to switch with extreme speed from camera on strap to camera on tripod. Of course you also have to use a RRS clamp on your tripod ball head. I use this system and am delighted with the ease of use and convenience. Well worth the price if you're doing a lot of photography on the run as I do when on assignment.
