I happily take my video camera everywhere, but it't tiny and I've got a nice wee padded case for it - and to be honest it's not worth much so don't care (as much) if it gets trashed/soaked.
but a bag full or SLR + lenses seems risky, not so much from a crash damage view but also a mud/dust point of view while using. Caleb obviously carts a load of gear with him a lot of the time - so I guess once you've got a decent bag sorted and a good routine for getting stuff in/out and changing lenses it's no drama.

Any suggestions of a good camera bag for riding with?


If you're serious about it then I'd recommend spending money on a cover for your camera, rather than a special bag. Then the camera will be protected when you're shooting as well as when you're moving, and you can shoot in all weather and also not worry about mud and dust from riders even in good weather. And get some great action splatter shots...

I've got a sports sleeve that I use for alpine photography which is weather proof and allows full use of the controls. Chuck that in a neoprene bag for carrying and you're good to go.

If you think you might get REALLY wet (like falling in a river crossing or something) then you could go for a full waterproof cover, and never worry again. But access to the camera controls is a lot more restricted, I would imagine.

I saw one of them at wellington photographic today. Might have to see if I can have a look through the viewfinder with it...

+1 on a good cover. I use a similar one to what's on that link when I'm out in the rain, or on the water shooting sailing. As a lot of my best sailing shots come from shooting from a small (very wet) RIB then protection from saltwater is a real concern. If the camera isn't in hand then I keep it in a drybag (with two big packets of silica gel as humidity in the drybag can be an issue). I also keep a big microfibre cloth handy to give everything a wipe when needed.

I use these for lenses - made out of 90mm iPlex PVC pressure stormwater pipe and fittings - just cut to different lengths for lenses - bombproof and more importantly, waterproof and inexpensive.

That is brilliant! Even to use to make fixed compartments within my bag would be super handy.
Love the colour coding too ;)


mundi - nice shot. Off camera flash always makes me think of Derrick Morrison, I could think of worse people to be compared with. :thumbsup:
