Can you add a strap on the Z5u?

I'm about to make a purchase on the Z5U and wanted to know if I can add a strap that can go around my neck (and hang myself ..lol j/k)? I don't remember seeing any strap holders..

The Z5 does indeed have strap holders built in to the front and rear of the top handle.

anyone remember when sony actually STOPPED giving a free strap with a camcorder?

i still have a couple of (thin) ones from previous cameras - never was impressed with them anyway, buy it seems a bit petty to stop giving them - what, saving 50 cents?

Yeah, the most recent manuals I have that show the strap as a supplied item are from the Z1/FX1, circa 2005. Never used the strap myself so don't miss it, but still...
