Depends on the type of camera, eh? For Leica style rangefinders, it's hard to beat the style of a nice leather strap/case combo from Luigi. For a vintage SLR, you could go for the leather halfcase / skinny strap, or the vintage woven strap depending on your taste.

For my SLRs, I'm partial to the neoprene Zing case / strap from Tiffen. Lightweight, weather resistant, practical and reversible in eye catching colour/black combinations. They're also cheap.

those are called "hippie" straps.

Do you know where I can get a good quality one that can handle the weight of a heavy SLR? With a google search, I only came across some decent ones at Epic store.

hmm, i'm not sure anybody is making a high quality hippie strap these days.

keep an eye on the metal fittings. some are heavier duty than others.

i use an old camcorder strap from RCA. if your parents had one of those massive VHS recorders it probably came with one, they are nice and wide and look good.

I have an R-Strap from BlackRapid...

Totally doable as a DIY project, but the function/comfort is great.

redmonkey makes leather straps for slrs. not sure what the quality is, but they are pretty expensive.
