Don't be noticed with camera in hand
With the smaller cameras it is nice to hold camera in right hand strap wraps around wrist and then is held tight between palm of hand and the right side of the camera. This lets you hold the camera behind your back and then quickly bring it up to your face to frame a photo. You're hanging onto the camera and just trying to keep the strap out of the way. Nobody wants to have the strap in front of the lens.
