Re: Safari and camera bags

I did three safaris using Canon DSLRs (primary body, plus a backup) and also carried a Sony RX-100 compact with a 28-100 equivalent lens. The primary body had a 100-400L lens on it all the time I was in a vehicle. The spare DSLR body never left the rucksack.

If animals were too close for the DSLR and 100-400 I used the compact, which I kept in a case on my belt. About 95% of the animal photos were taken with the DSLR. I'd have found trying to juggle a second DSLR just too awkward.

I could see how keeping an EM5 plus short zoom in a belt case could work well for nearby animals and landscape shots. But I wouldn't fancy trying to juggle a third camera.
