G15 for backpacking -- mount to waist-belt?
1 week ago

Hello

I just purchased the G15... This is my first non-DSLR camera.  I bought it for a backpacking trip in the tetons coming up.  I've gone on backpacking trips with my DSLR before.  I want to have it out in case of photo opportunities -- takes to long to remove pack and dig out camera.  But its really a pain to hike with pack on, camera around neck, while holding onto trekking poles.

So I bought the G15 to keep out while my big camera/lenses are in my pack.

Question:  Has anyone used a case with a belt loop large enough to secure to the waist belt of a large internal frame backpack?  If so, what case is it, are you happy with it, and was it secure enough to hike without it falling off the belt?

Thanks!
