I have never dropped a camera. That's because whenever I pick up a camera the first thing I do is put the strap around my neck.

I have never dropped a camera either. I also have never used a strap.

BUT I never use the strap that came with the camera, they are too cheap and scratchy...when I buy a new camera I buy a new comfortable strap.

A tip for wearing the camera on the shoulder, instead of wearing it so the camera lens is pointing out, put it on your shoulder so the lens is pointing to your body...it will bounce less.
