The digital holster is a stiffer sided case. I guess it would depend on personal preference.

speaking from experimenting with my own RIBZ pack, it would do the job for a slimline digital. a bigger SLR wouldn't be served very well in there. the bulk of the frame and lens when assembled would take out most of the available room on one side(and you'd have a huge lump getting in the way).

for larger SLR assemblies, a hard-sided case/pack is the way to go. that glass is muy expensive for something so fragile.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Keyhole Camera harness made by Back country Solutions.
It looks like a great solution, but has no weather protection, so I'd have to come up with something on my own.
I'd like to find a way to modify it so it could be worn without the pack, but the straps would get in the way.

I used a TTP Digital Holster as well. I attached a molle water bottle pouch to it.

I've always just wrapped my large cameras in a jacket and buried them in my pack.

for christmas a couple years ago i got my wife(who's a bigtime camera nut) a nice case/lenscase pair. both have lots of transport options, from waistbelt attachment points to dedicated harnesses. they're reasonably weather-tight and semi-hard sided.

dropped a pretty penny, i did.

taking them hunting this fall. will try to get a couple good wildlife shots.

Thanks for mentioning this product. It looks promising. I rigged up a (temporary) solution that was similar and it worked great, but I got a pretty nice sternum bruise after a long day of backpacking with the DSLR hitting me with every step. This system looks a little more stable.

a lot of the holster type setups, like my wife's, come with a variety of strapping options. one of my favorites is the x-strap with a waist belt. virtually zero movement, especially bounce.

bruises will be a thing of the past with setups like that.

Boy, does this take me back. My first camera was a Graflex Speed Graphic bellows camera that my father had used when he was a young man. It took 2-1/4" x 3-1/4" cut film and I could also use 120 roll film with an adapter. At age fourteen, I hauled that thing high into the Chisos Mountains of Big Bend. After several years, my father passed an Argus C3 on to me. With both of those cameras, I got pretty good at estimating exposure times so I didn't always have to use a light meter.

Some years after that, I purchased a Hanimex Praktica and a bunch of lenses, then a couple Minolta Maxxum 9000 SLRs with huge zoom lens along with several wide angle lenses. I tried all kinds of cases and was most fond of a photographer's vest with padded compartments. I also toted a three pound pair of Steiner military binoculars just in case the rest of the gear didn't keep me from blowing off exposed ridges.

Now, I take a small digital with 10X optical zoom that fits in my hand and can backpack for several days with less weight than just the glass I used to hang around my neck.
