So my big thing in life is photography. Sometimes I'll want to go for a ride and will want to take my camera with me. When I'm going by train or walking somewhere, I prety much always have it with me. I'm a little wary of having a $1,200 piece of kit on a strap as I'm going 25mph through the city streets. I have these horrific visions of my lens turning to millions of tiny shards, my motor drive disintegrating, etc. So here's the question for any of you who may ride with a camera. How do you do it? Do you put it in something for protection? Do you just hope you don't crash or get hit by a car? Any novel solutions to this problem?
FWIW, my walk-around cameras are a Nikon F3P w/motor drive and a Mamiya 645.
