Im running with the Sony Nex setup recommended by Tynan. Now it seems all camera bag solutions are either very poor quality or a bad fit for travel (too big for various reasons). Now this goes out to everyone that owns a 4/3 mirorless camera: Which bag did you choose? In short it should look awesome, fit the camera with attached lens and provide reasonable protection.
The most space efficient case I've seen is one specifically designed by Sony for the NEX. With that said, I own one and I'm thinking of dumping it. A few reasons include, it was way overpriced for the quality, it's cumbersome to work with, and you're supposed to use the dorky strap to hold the bottom piece on (I used a couple zip ties). This is a half cover thing which has to be on the camera in order for the rest of case to attach. This part adds a good bit of bulk and is a pain to take off when you need to charge/change the battery. I'm strongly considering going with Tynan's method of just stashing it in a pocket and trusting myself not to drop or toss my bag around.
The police lined us up in the pitch black tunnel. Their headlamps flicked around as they gave their orders in French. We were getting searched.
They went up the line searching my friends. First they were patted down, and then their bags were sifted through. Nothing to worry about, as they had nothing to hide.
I was next. I did have something to worry about. Inside my bag, right near the top, were human bones.
I've been using the Kodak Zi8 camera for several years now, and it's been a workhorse of my ability to capture content. I originally reviewed the Zi6, and then reviewed the Zi8 more recently on this blog, and I also did a post on using a wide-angle lens with the Zi6 or Zi8.
But recently, I gave a speech at TJHSST and the Zi8 failed to record the video correctly, so I decided it was time to revisit my setup, since capturing content is so important to me (as per our company manifesto points #13 and #19).
The price of the Zi8 camera has come down so much since its launch (from above $200 to under $100 now) that I decided to use the following strategy:
Here's a video of the entire setup, with pics below that:
