Default Carrying your FZ35

Hi,

I am new to this forum, but have been reading through your posts for the last couple of weeks. They have been helpful and your suggestions are appreciated, many of which I have put to use. I just purchased the FZ35 a week ago and really like it so far.

I do have a question for you FZ35 (an the like) owners. How to you prefer to carry your camera?

I like to hike and often have my dogs with me. So it is nice to have my hands free. I also like to stop quickly and take shots of interesting things my wife and I find along the way. So quick access is helpful. I don't like to carry it on the strap around my neck because it bangs into things including my dogs while getting them on and off leash.

I bought a Lowepro Rezo 110 AW which is made for video cameras. It is ok but a bit bulky for clipping to a belt.

Perhaps there is a good padded fanny pack out there that folks like?

What do you like to use?

Thanks and I look forward to learning more from this community.

John

John, I use the smallest Lowepro possible for a very snug fit for my FZ38 - Edit 110.
It has a belt clip but also a bit too bulky.

I use the Lowepro Rezo TLZ10. It fits the camera perfectly. It also has a pouch in the front that I keep a lens pen and extra memory card in.

JLC1-

Welcome to the Forum and to the Panasonic Folder. We're delighted that you dropped by. We have a nice group here who are active and like to share photos, tips, and help each other.

Personally I use a bag very much like the Lowepro Rezo but a bit larger. It doubles as my purse and camera bag, allowing me to carry the FZ-35, a slave flash and a spare battery.

Have a great day.

I use something like a messenger bag.Usually I put my documents , mobile phone and pther personal stuff in it , but when I go out with my camera(as it is a dog , I take it out :d ) I put it in that bag.
If fits right in , I put in in a "bubble-paper" , something like this

but without that evenlopes evidently.
It really does its job , f.e. yesterday I fall on ice
Panny stayed intact

I'm using a clone of the Lowepro Rezo TLZ10; is has a small front pocket and two small side pockets. Got it at Target - works great.

Thanks for all the replies. It seems that many of you have gravitated to a similar place as I did.

I am also gathering that most are not using the sun shade attachment. That will clearly not fit easily into these bags. Is this really all that important? I have never used one before. I ordered a circular polarizer and I will try that for now.

Thanks again,

John

John-

Yes, I do carry and use a sunshade. It is really very efficient in reducing lens flare in cross lighting and semi backlighted situations.

Have a great weekend.

Ditto on the shade. The camera bag I mentioned works with the shade attached. It's a snug fit, length wise, but a good one I'm confident with (and, FWIW, I'm a little anal about "gear safety").
