Well, add my wondering about the carrying of a camera
that weighs 2.4 pounds!  I think a lighter camera will
prove to be much more useful, partly because it will
be handier and use less energy.  However, everyone to
their own pack and their own hike!

That said - I used to get a photo mag that had a
regular ad for a camera "holder" that would allow you
to carry a camera tightly on your chest, yet allow you
to pull it out to use at the moment. I think I would
rig a similar system using the shoulder straps on the
pack and using stretchy webbing tightly against my
chest.  This is definitely something that you would
need to test extensively before setting off north from

good hiking - Kent
