How many of you non-professionals carry your camera with you all the time?

Ha! Mine is an early 1960s Soviet military shoulder bag pouch, pretty much the same design used during WWII. Actually, the camera sits in a half case, so the whole ensemble is very unobtrusive. And yes, my camera is with me much; or at least when I know I'll be outdoors for a bit, even if for just lunch.

Cool. I fitted a piece of foam in the bottom of the bag and cut out a place for the camera and lens.

PS What is it with Americans and bags? Seriously, we have to carry so much stuff around these days - why are you afraid to put it in a bag, just because women had the idea first?

The "purse" reference is from Seinfeld, by the way.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Ex pro here. I always carry either my EOS M with 22mm lens or my s95 with me. Easy to slip into my shoulder bag (no hipster jokes please)..

I've missed lots of interesting shots as I didnt have my camera. Like a fish with 4 legs that walked out of the Ocean onto the beach on Coney Island. Turned out to be some Asian fish someone brought to the U.S., when it grew he threw it into the sea... and it had babies who infested the waters.

Lots of topless women walking around Coney and Brighton; but did get a few shots, like a totally nude woman who likes to swim in the Winter.

Just one fish? How did it find a mate?

i have tried to carry around a camera with me at all times but already being a really big guy, i try to leave any sort of additional bulk at home.

airbutchie - Joe was definitely right about adding contrast...

I got an NX300 specifically to be able to carry around a camera much more, without the bulk.

Thanks, gonzo! CDI, I need to use the camera I have, not buy another camera.

Nah. DLSR made sense five years ago because there was no alternative to the concept of brick. Now you can get APS-c sensors in tiny package and they do 90% of what full frame does... and those you can carry with you.

I think a 6D + 24-70 is a pretty compact and lightweight kit that I can carry just about anywhere without even feeling it is on my back. I just need to find a nice and small bag that is discreet enough and doesn't scream camera bag.

It's called denial. It's nowhere near compact for everyday carry.

Here are the loose stages of the process you're going through with your DSLR:

I keep my cell phone with me.

I'm sure as hell not gonna leave my cell phone in my car while I'm at work, and the nature of my work requires me to leave my gear alone in the presenc of people who I don't trust (I don't have an office, and I have to be constantly walking around and leaving my gear unattended).

So...I mostly just walk around with my cell phone unless I'm planning to shoot. I've taken my DSLR to work a few times with no incident, but I don't make a habit of it because that's asking for trouble.

I try to keep it close, so it is at least within reach.
Usually it's in the truck, acclimated to the cold, and ready to go. Take it with me when I hunt and bike. Problem is the weight of the 7D and L lenses forces me to restrict myself to one lens, or lighten up on the hunting gear, and, pray I don't crash on the bicycle. Usually I have the 300mm attached, and out of the backpack, in case I run into a quick shot opportunity. And carry the lighter 100mm in my pack, in the 300mm case, for selfy shots and macro's. I can't cover the distance, to get into the frame in 10 seconds, with anything longer than 100mm. 24-70 is too heavy, unless I leave the 300 behind. So landscapes are usually out while hunting. My light weight rebel is only 6.8mp, or I would take it.
Now that hunting is over, and it's been around zero degree's out, the camera is back inside with me. I'm not going anywhere,either.
