What strap for the Q?

Ok, lots of accessories for the Q are out there and there are several good threads on them. There are also several on lenses and the huge variety with adapters. We even have threads on adapters and how to modify them to eliminate flair and such.

What about straps for the Q? I see one abortive attempt in April of 5 posts. I don't think the neck strap is a good way to go, it's nearly as large folded as the Q itself. Right now I have a hand strap from a P&S attached to the right lug and that is working Ok for me.

What do you use as a strap for your Q and why?

A small and simple wrist strap (originaly from a Sony Cybershot I think), for the obvious reason. (A small camera should be small.)

Works fine for me.

This. I added a springy cinch ball (not sure what they are called) that lets me snug it up on my wrist so I wont drop the camera.

Like this but it is a ball shaped.

I don't have the Q, but for all of my compacts, I use Op/Tech Cam Strap QD. Then when I need my hands free, I attach the camera to the Op/Tech Compact Sling.

I guess it's a newer version of the strap because seriously dislike the first version (bought my Wii on release day).
