Title: Carrying camera gear?
Post by: rafiki on July 08, 2018, 10:20:50 PM
Has anyone come across a solution to carrying a DSLR and one or two lenses on a bike? I like to combine my daily ride with a bit of photography on the way but dislike a backpack or a slingstrap. Has anyone found a pannier or bar bag specifically designed for photographers?

The ortlieb bar bag can be adapted to carry dslr camera. Have a look at https://www.sjscycles.co.uk/luggage/ortlieb-camera-insert-kit-for-ultimate-bar-bags-of94/

The Ortlieb camera insert as recommended by Oggi will fit most barbags and is well worth getting to protect your camera. My barbag is a Rixen and Kaul and I only ever have it on the bike when I need to carry a DSLR. Which as jags will tell you is very rare.

I agree it will fit most bar bags. I just happen to have an ortleib. I promise I donít have shares!
