$60 sling-style camera strap, by James Duncan Davidson and Greg Koenig. They sent me one a few weeks ago, and it is perfect. I’ve never been happy with either a regular around-the-neck strap or carrying my camera in a bag. The LumaLoop offers the best of both — you can use the camera while attached to the strap, but there’s a quick release clasp so you can take it off in (literally) a snap. It’s super convenient and very comfortable.
I love the whole mindset with something like this. Duncan is a full-time photographer, and rather than live with camera straps he didn’t like, he partnered with an industrial designer, got to work, and built his own. Gumption.
