So many say they take their camera everywhere...never without it.  I've wondered if all that traveling in a car jiggles parts lose or knocks things out of alignment over time.  So on a recent ordinary trip to town where I expected to have no photo ops, I took my camera along.  Wouldn't you know it.  Had to brake suddenly and my SX50 fell into the floorboard   Note to self...SX50 needs to "buckle up" or ride in the floor board (which I feel like there is more vibration).  Maybe I'm over thinking this.  Wouldn't be the first time if I am.  It's not like I ride around in a rough old junker, I have a very smooth riding car but...

If you have the SX50 on a neck-strap, try hanging it over the headrest.  Then it won't travel when you have to hit the brakes.

I take mine almost everywhere.  I've lived in the city long enough that it's become habit: when I slam on the brakes, my right arm goes over to grab whatever's riding in the passenger seat, even if it's a person wearing a seat belt.  lol

I put my camera belt around the head rest too and reach for it if I have to slam the brakes hard which rarely happens. Safest place for a camera to "sit" in the car.
