Hello all again, I need advice about bringing my Nikon D70 on tour. What's the best way to protect it from road vibrations and the elements, yet still be handy to grab and shoot? I've read on the forum that putting it in the rear panniers or trunk bag is bad. Too much abuse, is that true? Is it better to put it in a good handlebar bag? I'm thinking of getting the Arkel small handlebar bag. Any other suggestions? One other thing, what really small, compact tripods do you all use? Thanks!
