How safe is it to carry your dslr around your neck in Europe, specifically Rome, Italy, Spain, or Paris?
I've heard quite a lot of scary stories about the pickpockets in Europe, so I want to hear some of your experience/advice on protecting your gear in Europe. I recently brought a lowepro compudaypack backpack, but now I'm scared that backpacks might not be very safe option.
Also, did you feel safe carrying the dslr around your neck. Cause I would hate to miss those picture taking moments just cause I have to constantly hide my camera from the prying eyes.
