Camera Strap Recommendations

I’m not liking the strap that came with my Rebel T2i, so I’m looking for an aftermarket solution. (It’s a little itchy and not really long enough.) Does anyone have any suggestions? I would prefer something that goes over neck and shoulder, and that allows me to quickdraw for pictures.

If I wanted to take this all the way, I’d design some kind of a mount for it to elevate the camera and get some angle on the buttons, and then a counter-weight for the body of the guitar (it added a not-insignificant amount of weight to the headstock).

Here’s a flickr photoset (not mine) of the type of pictures taken by the new iPhone 3GS camera.

If I had one of these, I probably wouldn’t take another point-and-shoot camera around with me again. These look great.

Also: my phone envy for one of these things grows daily.
