Repeating here a question I also asked in the bike luggage thread...
Any recommendations for a handlebar bag for a camera with one lens attached. Mainly road with a bit of light gravel (it’ll be fitted to my Eddy Merckx road bike so nothing too extreme). Aim is safe transport to photogenic spots rather than rapid access, but probable that I will want to whip it out quickly sometimes, hence needing the lens attached rather than separate.
At the moment I use a Timbuk2 messenger with padded camera insert, which is fine but I worry that if I fall, i’ll do myself (and the camera) more damage than if it was on the bike.
Camera will be fairly small and light: Minolta X-700 with a 28-85mm, or Olympus OM-D EM5.2 with 12-40mm or a 75-300 (am toying with picking one up specifically for the deer rutting season)
