    The most inconspicuous camera => your handphone.
    I dun think there is any way to hide your camera, and if you do it in any way that looks sneaky, you might give others the wrong impression on what you're trying to do...

    Stand behind Denniskee, Peterpan or me, and no one on the streets will be able to see your camera ... or even see you!

    BTW, just curious - are there 'customized' 550Ds?

    can the limited edition of 550D be considered as "customized"? of course only customized as per jackie's style..that is...

    Your camera is fine, just loosed more weight, don't wear loud flashy clothes & don't talk very loudly with lots of hand gestures while using your mobile phone
    Take the shot!

    No lah ... that's just a very poor attempt at extended marketing. IMHO - FAIL. Never paint the body red and gold! Also got no cracks and chunks missing after bring rolled down a hill-side village, get blown up in several cars and tossed from a super sky-scrapper! How can!!!

    On the contrary, dress, scream and act like Chris Rock in the Fifth Element and no one will even notice you're carrying a DSLR!

    TS, don't mind me asking but what is your rationale behind asking this question? Why would you want to hide your camera when you're shooting??

    You taking on a role of a PI?

    Why did you buy the DSLR for since you know the "size" is big?
    maybe can downgrade to a PnS to hide it in yr shirt pocket.

    buy a soft toy like this, cut open from the back, hide your camera inside with the lens coming out from the belly, you can use the camera without people noticing.

    hope this help.

    No strap.

    Reduce your profile? Hmm. Maybe you can go into leopard crawl position or something. Should be low enough if you don't have too big a belly.

    your behaviour and body language counts for far more conspicuousness than the dslr.

    for me, when i find my dslr too conspicuous, i summon doraemon and he lends me his magic portal of many treasures to store it.
