not to mention the time i was so focused on a family of ducks in the river that I fell walking across the rocks, did not drop the camera but almost broke a few bones. I had the strap wrapped a few times around my arm and i kept it way above the water/rocks. OUCH
Good points. I could add a #6 for you - Be extremely careful changing your battery when walking on a boardwalk over water. LOL! My D70's battery compartment opens down. I was in the process of replacing batteries (stupid me, was holding it down - DUH!) and it slipped out of my hand into the water. There went $50!
#4 is a good idea - I caught the neck strap on a chair arm with the camera in my hand (i.e. not using the neck strap). The camera landed on the floor and a pin snapped in my lens making the zoom unusable.
