    terayon, you have a nice, clean solution. It reminded me of both a "soft shackle" and "nacrabiner" that I've run across on Hammockforums. The big knot is the difficult part; these two "soft carabiners" make use of a hollow rope and a way to thread the rope through itself to do something similar.

    Easy and convenient way to carry a camera. My apologies if someone else posted something like this before....not really any different than many other ideas in this board.

    Are you able to use the viewfinder, or would you need to untether the camera for that? The straps seem a bit short to keep them attached.

    I adapted an idea I read about on here (although now I can't find it, or else I'd give credit--sorry!) where you use a gatekeeper clip to attach a Side Effect to the waist belt attachment on a backpack and then hook the waist strap to the other side of the SE, giving you an easily accessible place for your phone/wallet/etc without removing the bag.

    In theory it sounded great but in reality it didn't work for me--the SE ended up under my arm where I couldn't see the contents, and I was worried about putting stress on the bag or contents since the waist strap is weight-bearing.

    I had an aha moment, however, when I realized I could use 2 gatekeeper clips to attach the SE to any part of the waist strap, thus letting me slide the SE around as needed and minimizing stress on the bag.


    See this album for pictures:

    First picture is of the bag in front, second is with it slid off to the side. I used 1" clips on a 1.5" strap in this photo, so I did have to fold the strap over; however, it doesn't seem to really hurt anything to do so (and of course it's avoidable with a different size clip or strap).

    Requirements:

    --$1-$2 gatekeeper clips of your choice
    --A healthy dose of "I don't care how it looks, I just want it to work" (as admittedly it's not the most fashionable hack around!)

    Works great to fix the one annoyance I have with backpacks--having to take the whole thing off to get to frequently-used items. (I tried attachments that go on the backpack straps, but they're super bulky/clunky and get in the way a lot more.)
