Default Case question

Next may I will be doing a bicycle tour through Abruzzo, Italy. I would like to take my FZ-35, and I am wondering if that might be possible, and what sort of case you would recommend. I should mention that this will be several days of 100+ kilometres on light racing-type bikes, rather a tourist setup with panniers, etc.

I'm also considering my trusty old Fuji F30, which I could just slip in my jersey pocket, but the FZ-35 would be my preference if possible.

Have one of these for the FZ35 on the Mountain Bike...it clips to the bars and also you can unclip it and use it as a Fanny Pack around town great for touring...the Ripoffs would work also if you want extreme light...

Not sure if this would work, as I won't be wearing a belt (think spandex shorts and a light nylon jersey). What I think I need is some sort of compact case that would attach to the bike itself.

That looks like it might be a good idea. I wonder if this case would work:

Yes, it would work the dimensions are 8 X 5 X 4 according to a review...but reaching behind you to get the FZ35 and then taking a photo of something you saw in front of you would be less than ideal for me...I like the Handlebar bag as you can leave the top open while touring around town and stop and get your camera in hand pretty quick...so under the seat would be cool, but unhandy for me...

Clint even did a few of his own stunts by taking photos while riding his bike...he's multi talented like that...lol...

You get much better shots if you're not trying to focus while falling.
