    Carrying a M4/3 by just a sling on your back

    So I just got a NEX6 and want to go out and take some photos tomorrow with it. My question is, will it survive on a sling that I wrap around on my bike while I ride?
    I tend to ride hard and a little bit of overkill, but rarely fall.
    How safe is this? I'd hate to break it so soon!

    Why not put it in a gas tank or jerrycan type bag? A strap works ok but could get annoying on a longer ride as the camera will move around a little.
    A Useful Bear is a handy thing.

    Check out the Black Rapid slings which have an under arm stabilizing strap as well as 'stoppers' which can be adjusted to minimize sliding.
