as to the quesiton about where to carry the camera:

i used to just carry mine in my camelback/backpack, but last summer on tour i got really annoyed with the "stop, take backpack off, get camer out, take picture, put back in pack, put pack on" routine...

so i bought a little velcro/zipper bag that i think was deigned for cell phones or something and i have attached it to the strap so that it rides up high on my chest. i think it's about as safe/secure as in the backpack and i can get it out in seconds notice...

actually i think over the winter i have lost the bag and am now looking to buy another for this year.

of course you have to make sure that it attaches securely to the strap so that there is not danger of it falling off on the trail.

P.S. i have the Cannon S200 uh, i'm blanking on the name, but it's the 2 megapixel -- the new model is the same camera in the 3 megapixel
