Thread: Standing up to shocks and knocks

    Default Standing up to shocks and knocks

    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if my camera gear would stand up to minor shocks and knocks if I leave it in a padded bag under the following conditions

    1. On the floor board/seat of a jeep on a safari/wild life reserves
    2. In the front basket of a Mountain Bike or strapped to the back while going on a nature trail

    Thanx in advanced

    Thanx for the heads up

    So no worries with vibrations being transmitted to the cam body sensors and lens mechanisms right?

    Having the gear strap to my body or a waist carrier not so practical or I would definitely do it...

    actually the smaller but constant vibrations / shakings that you get from the floorboard might not be a very good place to test the endurance of your camera. esp when its a jeep with a metal floorboard and not a Mercedes with a cushioned flooring
    But I am sure the having the camera in a proper padded bag on your bag is the safest option. front basket, just make sure u dont dump the camera out of the basket into the mud or rocks.

    Okie noted your kind suggestion especially the bicycle part, may need something to strap down everything. Thanx!
