Camera straps for on bike

Posted on
  • Interested in hearing what people find are best straps for carrying a cane a when not buried in a bag. Suggestions appreciated, particularly ones that don't cost a king's ransom.

  • Also interested, I was thinking of strapping a belt beg to the crossbar for my Lumix but unsure how well it would survive. At least when you carry it, your body acts as a big damper.

    Would love to have it readily available though.

  • The restrap camera sling / strap is good for riding with the camera on body. (There is also a forum discount code somewhere too).

    That's what I assume you mean as opposed to strapping it onto the bike?

  • It looks like Restrap are no longer doing their sling thing unfortunately

  • I have restrap and mettle, wanna buy?

  • Definitely interested...how much would you want for them I'd be interested in checking them out in person?

  • I am in SE6

  • I'm overdue for a trip down to my brother's who I think you've met, will look to arrange and see if I can tie the two together

  • oh yes! I am very close to his place :)

  • I'm using the Peak Design Slide Lite in combination with the fidlock equipped stabilizer from PS bagworks.

    Works a charm with my X100V & Really Right Stuff bottom plate.

  • I’ve been using the Outer Shell one for years and it’s bloody amazing. Has a messenger bag style stability strap that holds the camera in place even when mountain biking.

  • Vaguely relevant question to this thread, does carrying camera on bikes cause any long term damage in terms of bumps/vibration/shock?

    Got both a modern digital and an old 35mm mechanical camera and their lenses in mind
    Not sure if any of you guys also insure camera for the off chance of crashes

  • Wouldn't have thought so. I carry my camera in a padded 'sleeve' in a bar bag and never noticed anything untoward. Can't imagine it gets any more shocks etc than in a car or when slung over my shoulder when walking.

    I did once have a crash in the woods at speed, luckily the only thing that broke was the screen protector.

  • I've just ordered a Rille stabilising strap so I can take my X-T4 out on the bike with me (I've finally stopped being overly precious of the camera after getting a few scratches/marks on it).

    I'll be using it with my Peak Design strap so will report back how I get on with it if anyone is interested.

  • Interested to see how you get on, was looking at one of those.

    It's a good line to cross when you get over scratches etc. Things are there to be used!

  • And used it shall be! My camera has moved from “precious object” to “tool.”

  • I made my own Rille strap, saved me €30. I don't have pics of it now but it was not super technical!

  • I've still not made one of those so for gravel stuff was putting my little Sony into a very small case on a belt
