I carry mine is a small sling bag over my shoulder,
For extra comfort I have made a waist strap that secures the bag on rougher terrain,
The bag I use also has an integrated weather proof cover that helps to keep moisture and dust out.

Works very well and is comfortable,

I have carried my Nikon D1x (2.5kgs) and My smaller Canon like this with no trouble.

I put mine on the rear seat inside a Pelican case.
Has done Namibia and Malawi like this, works well.
Only drawback is takes some time to open.
So I carry small camera inside the tank bag for the quick shots.

I've been on the Jameson diet for a week, so far I've lost 7 days....

Hi all,

It is a difficult one, a compromise between acsessability \ safety \ quality.

I love the quality photos I get from my SLR, but because of the bulk, its really difficult to keep it handy for those quick snapshots. I think I prefer the tankbag option overall, although in reality, I probably need two cameras, a good compact that you can slip into a pocket and even use on the fly, and the SLR packed away for the shot thats worth the stop.
