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

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

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 :bsmilie: :bsmilie: :bsmilie:

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!!! :angry: :bsmilie:

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! :bsmilie:

You taking on a role of a PI?:bsmilie:

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. :thumbsup:

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.
