Where do you carry your camera?

I still shoot with film. In years past, I would bring my heavy camera bag stuffed with lenses, etc. However, I was in France in May and used my trusty Olympus Infinity Stylus. It fits in a jacket or shirt pocket hence it is truly portable. 4 rolls of 400 speed film in the pockets of my blazer and I was set to shoot anything.

For the last three trips I have used a purse that fits securely under my arm (my hand secures it in place.) I place the digital camera in the small zipper in side.

I have to say after living in NY and traveling abroad, a good backpack is what is desired. My prada holds my cell phone across my chest and has hidden compartments and zippers for money, credit cards, etc....it is easily moved to sit comfortably in your front,under your arm or beside you given the circumstance you might be in.It is old but the best use of my money ever....and it held up in the parisian rain again today

The film SLR with zoom lens is always on a strap around my neck and my left hand is on the barrel. The digital point and shoot is in a side pocket. I shoot all gypsies but they run as soon as they see the camera so I never get a clear shot.

Is it possible to buy a camera strap that is long enough to allow you to put it over your head and shoulder?

My strap fits over head and shoulder but the camera rides high on my chest.
