Default How do you carry your FZ150/FZ200?

Having just got a 200, i'm just wondering how people carry a camera of this size about, is it easier over the shoulder or on a belt loop? any recommendations of bags/cases would be appreciated too.

This is what I use on my walks with my FZ40. It will fit just about any camera. I can remove the camera from the sling very quickly for taking photos.

When not in use, I keep it in a Case Logic bag. When I'm out shooting, I just have it dangling from my neck.

I carry my camera dangling from the neck also, but the bag has to hang from the shoulder and is forever slipping off, I might invest in a small back pack.

I like having my hands free; and have always carried my cameras around my neck. I am a tourist, always looking for a new place to explore, right in my "back yard", in the boonies.

I've always carried my cameras around my neck; and with the "holder", it takes all pressure off my neck.

Yep; I'm a tourist, exploring new birds, flowers, sunsets, and anything else I want to preserve in an image.

FZ200 requires a slightly larger holster:

I like to adjust the neck strap long and put it over my neck and one shoulder. Did that make sense?
This way that camera strap is diagonal across one shoulder and when I'm walking I can adjust it so it is on my back.

I have bought a small bag for my fz35. You can see it here : http://www.braun-phototechnik.de/en/...300-black.html
I tested it in the store and saw that it fits just right so i purchased it. There are 3 ways i can carry it, one by having it around my neck or on my side with the strap, another is having it on my hand with the little handle. The last one and the one i am using most is passing my belt through the socket and having it on my waist. I find it really comfortable. The fz200 must be having a little longer lens than fz35 so this specific one may be too tight. It would be best to have your camera with you so that you can test it.
