    Talking Two qns

    First. If u in a crowded area. Having a backpack as ur camera bag, u carry as normal or in the front while shooting? Esp you are solo, inside the bag, all expensive lenses Still dare to let your bag behind n might hit other ppl or things?

    Second. Do you prefer over lapping of focus length in ur lenses or in range? Example like 14-24, 24-70(N) or 16-35, 24-70(S)? For me, over lapping also good, seem more worth as covers more but with same price
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    I will put a bomb inside the backpack. Whoever sticks his hand into it will have his hand blown apart.

    won't you blow yourself up too?

    Anyway I try not to carry backpack-style camera bags when I am in a new place... prefer to use shoulder bags/ belt system.

    Nobody answering your first question.
    Let me offer you my answer.
    1. Both back at home in Singapore or overseas, I would carry it on my back. The only difference is, if I am overseas, I wouldn't leave my camera inside the back. I would put it into a holster bag and carry it in front of me.

    kk i be nice and ans the first qn.
    in singapore or overseas, first things first, i makesure my bag isnt a camerabag. one of the worst things u wanna do is to carry tat free bag that canon gave u. its a straight signal to the ppl tat "HEY I AM CARRYING A DSLR"
    the very least if u scared kenna stolen is to cut tat logo off.

    2: lock it and check it often. i always subconciously touch my camera to check if it was intact. lock one layer zip another. add some bells. troublesome enough to discourage thiefs, convient enough to grab and shoot.

    3: behind or infront? neither. take the side. u can easily control where the bag direction is going. and always have a hand on the bag.
