Camera Access with a Backback?

Hi,

I am looking for a way to attach my camera, with a Really Right Stuff L-bracket, to my backpack such that I can access it quickly while wearing the pack.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Tom

If you mean that you're keeping the camera in the pack, the Lowepro Flipside series lets you spin the pack around and open it while it's at your waist. This is reasonably fast and doesn't require that you remove the pack.

If you're carrying a pack and want the camera outside it, I guess you'll need some kind of strap like a Black Rapid.

Hi Leornard,

Thanks for the suggestion.

Just to be clear I am looking for something that will allow me to keep the camera outside of, but attached to, the backpack.

Thanks,

Tom

Re: Camera Access with a Backback?

Will it work with an L-bracket?

I did not understand the specific need of doing that, normal camera straps work well for me

1. Risk of dropping the camera

2. Risk of being stolen / snatch

OpTek has straps that you can attach to your backpack straps.
