I like to go hiking with the dog and shooting action shoots. I have a 7D with the 70-200 and I really like the hand strap I have on it. But I don't want to have to carry the camera the entire hike, so what backpack or shoulder bag would work best for my needs?

the f-stop bags come highly recommended. the capture camera clip system might also work for you.

I often take a camera up to 1D3 size along with my 100-400 when walking the dog. Depending on weather and mood I might stick it on a Black Rapid strap and leave it "naked" whilst walking. If I want a little more discretion/protection then I stick it in a Lowepro Passport Sling with the padding insert removed. It can sit in that with the hood fixed in place and ready to shoot.

Can you make the dog carry it? ;)

I sling mine over my shoulder with an OP/Tech strap - or I put in my bike messenger bag and put that over my shoulder.

Look at the Kata LighTri 318 (http://www.kata-bags.us …-w-70-200mm-lens-2-lenses (external link)). It will hold a gripped 7d with a 70-200 or a 100-400 (and more if you want). It is light and you can wear it on your back or on your chest. The way it opens makes it easy to pull your camera with a hand grip.

When I go hiking, or full day adventures at the zoo, I have my camelbak on my back and my cotton carrier in the front.. Like you, I love my handstrap. Have not used a neck strap in many years.

Ilike the Black Rapid strap amd will probably get one...thanks.
I also do have the Lowepro Sling and tried it w/o the insert for the first time...works well.

I wish could ...but she is pretty crazy, i.e.: jumping in the river, chasing birds etc...could be pricy.

Really like the looks of that bag...probably my next purchase.

I have a CC, still figuring if I want to wear it in the summer heat. I got it for taking pics in the winter while skiing.

Was looking for a similar option and I ordered this. http://www.kata-bags.us …ith-70-200-lens-lens-lens (external link)

Holds a gripped SLR with 70-200 plus another lens. With a bit more room. Smallest way to carry I have found.

I actually like the Luma loop cinch strap better than my black rapid slings, as they swing around a bit if your on the move and also when leaning forward, with the cinch you can shorten it quickly so it's held tight against the body. This means there less chance to damage the kit.
