    on the bike digi case

    ive been lookin for a suitable case for my cannon sd400 over the pasr few years and nuthin quite did what i wanted. some came close but in the end they either were too hard to get to quickly, got in the way of my arm movement or fell off so i got to work down in my newly referbished man cave the other night.

    this is a old gu bucket that fits in a h2o bottle cage. i modded up a dense foam insert from a old eggbeater sl box and cut off a few inches of nylon cord scavenged out of my BoB bag. 1/2" of pad on the bottom and 1" on either side and up top should do the trick.

    havent used it on the trail yet but ive put it through a barrage of lab testing and it looks very promising. now if i can only find my tripod ill fit it in too.

    looks good, CC!

    I use a camelbak cell phone pouch to carry the P&S on the camelbak strap... handy but out of the way

    I have been using one of these for years:

    http://www.accucase.com/camera.html

    It clips onto the chest strap of your camelbak, and you can grab it and snap a shot in about 5 seconds once you have stopped. Have you looked into these CC? They are about $22 for the small (for my old Canon Elph S230) and maybe $30 for the larger one?
    Not sure which would fot your sd 400...

    Cheers

    I use a Lowepro case, not sure if it's this exact model:
    https://www.lowepro.com/Products/Cam.../D-Res_8M.aspx

    The main strap is velcro/hook and loop. So I fix it around the shoulder strap, above the sternum strap on my camelback.


    Gorillapod then goes in a jersey pocket or the webbed pocked on the CB.

    The LowePro D10 fits the SD Canon line perfectly. They also fit nicely in these hard shells which are a paltry $8 at REI:

    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    I bought one of these cell phone cases at the Home Depot and used the belt clip and a zip tie to attach it to my shoulder strap, which has worked great for 2+ years. The sides are stretchy fabric and the front and top flap are Cordura nylon. Fits the SD series cameras very well. Recommended for dry climates only. Only cost me $6, and it holds gels when I don't have my camera along.

    I stopped driving my bike into my garage - I'm now protected with Roof Rack Ranger app for my iPhone.

    all good ideas guys. thanx for the suggestions. the prob with those is they seem to hit my arms when i move around and that bugs me. maybe fm's bag would avoid that, looks too big though. what else do ya carry in there, yer vagisil?
