Hols trip to India. How to carry cameras? How many cameras should I take?


I will be on 3 weeks holiday to India soon. It will be my first trip to India. I am not a pro on assignment, but just a casual holidays snapper wanting to bring back nice memories of my trip. Will be wanting to shoot stills and vids.

I hate to switch lenses when traveling. Always have the wrong FL at the decisive moment and miss what I would consider many nice pictures. But have only been carrying one main camera and maybe a small P&S for a backup . So I have been thinking, with the crowds and dusty environs in India, maybe carry three interchangable lens cameras to avoid switching lenses?

Do you carry the cameras around your neck, on separate wrist straps or on a double Black Rapid X harness/ 3 camera Cotton Carrier, bandolier style, around or two around neck, one on wrist, any other combination, one on each shoulder, one on neck, etc ?

Does anyone regularly have 3 or more cameras around neck or on wrist straps whilst shooting on holiday?

Have Panny GF1, G2, and GX1. 7-14, 20, 25, 14-45, 14-200.

What would be best combo if I carry three cameras around my neck without need to switch lenses.

Mostly travel by rail, bus, and walking for sightseeing excursions.
