I have found the cheap shoulder straps available from eBay are fantastic and cost much less that the "Name" brand straps.
I'm sure you can find something similar that ships to the UK.

It seems I’m not the only one who sometimes takes my camera for a walk but never gets it out. :(
I do that sometimes. I get lazy and think it is just so much work to get it out. I do the same with lenses. I think I should really change the lens for a shot but do not because lazy :(

I’ve a couple of Optech straps for mine but I still hold the camera in my hand when using the M43 gear. The strap is more an insurance policy than a carrying device. Believe me, I’ve needed it a few times. The Nikon stuff goes back in the backpack if walking any real distance.

I use a Micnova MQ-MSP01 dual camera harness. It works well for most situations, and allows me to carry two cameras. Which lets me shoot all day with no to little lens changing.

That's one I hadn't heard of. A quick google and they look pretty effective and not too pricey. Might be looking at getting one myself. Thanks for the information. :)

Far from it I'm sure! It gets worse with lenses, I 'll routinely carry 4-5 yet only want one after I finally decide to leave it behind this time!

I use several, depending on on what kit I'm using and where I am.

I use a Black Rapid if I'm using my 150-600, a PD Slide for general outdoor work and a PD Cuff for indoor or studio work. All work well for me, but I'm an electric wheelchair user so with both the Slide and the Rapid, the camera sits on my lap between shots. When I'm using the Cuff, it's attached to my left hand so that I can still control my chair.

I love mine, and I use it all the time. The thing I like most about it, is it carries the cameras in a way that eliminates fatigue on my back. Yet keeps them accessible and ready to go when I need them.

I carry my camera like a sack of potatoes.

Some say I have deep pockets, others say my britches are too big for my own good.
But I know one thing...
I do not pocket politics with me when shooting or carrying on about photography.
...that's me time, my time to enjoy what I like and it helps when others don't feed into the fodder.
