    Slingbag? Beltpack? Suggestions. What do you use

    Wife and I walk 3-5 miles almost every day
    On occasion I see something that I would like to take an image of and wished I had the camera
    Carried my camera with a shoulder strap a few times but not comfortable and I would be using the camera very sporadically
    (Nikon with 70-300mm.) Carrying flash would be nice but not essential
    Thought about a beltpack or maybe a sling bag but wonder if they are going to be clumsy and uncomfortable too.

    I have a backpack for camera, flash, various lenses, battery charger, cards etc but is big and I only use on trips. Not sure a backpack for one camera and one lens would be practical or available

    Just wondering what you guys use if only taking one set up on a hike, bicycle ride etc

    Thanks for any suggestions

    Just a small ladies backpack
    A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything.

    id get a sling back thats a top loading. Swing it around and it comes out the top quickly. Then you get quickly put it back and sling it out of the way. I have personally never used one I have all backpacks or just shoulder carried my cameras

    What about a good-sized fanny/belt pack? I have an old Lowepro Sideline Shooter that I wear for every football and hoops game I shoot. Also, try the offerings from Think Tank Photo. http://www.thinktankphoto.com/

    I just bought a case logic sling for my D5100 and am very happy with it. Was on sale on Amazon for 40.00
