So, I thought I'd dig out my old film cameras, take one of them with me today, and, instead of monitoring my mileage or my performance, I'd look for some interesting photos to shoot.
The last time I did this, I rigged up an affair to sling the camera over my shoulder, then, spent the day constantly readjusting it to keep it from its natural tendency to fall forward and bang on the cross bar.
I ride a road bike and like to get down into the drops often.
I have some smaller cams, but can't get very excited about taking pictures with them. The two cameras I would consider lugging along are both 35 mm film cameras - both have compact wide-range zoom lenses, the Nikon has a 28-200 mm, and the Minolta has a 28-300 mm. While they sound gigantic, they are quite compact when zoomed to the short focal length.
But, they are both 35 mm professional cameras - so, compared to the pocket sized point and shoots of the modern era, they are large and heavy (each weighs close to two pounds). But, I get turned on when I'm shooting pics with these cameras - I get frustrated by the shutter lag and imprecise zooming of the modern point and shooters, although they are eerily light in weight.
So, any suggestions about how to secure a camera so as to carry it without it getting in my way all day long? I don't want to carry either of these in a bag mounted on a rack - too much vibration.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
