While I don't use a wrist strap I do use a neck lanyard. I'm also not a professional photographer, I'm a point and shoot type of gal. I take a lot of shots with the hope of capturing something halfway decent and I succeed often, although not top quality. The pics are to share and for my memories.
I use Rancco Quick Release Phone Neck Strap Lanyard. When I use it for on the fly type photos I can grab the camera and if needed drop it with no issue. If I want to get a little more precise I can quickly disconnect the camera.
