It has been a while since I have posted on here, and I have a question regarding how to carry a DSLR camera when hiking.

I plan on only doing day hikes mostly when bringing my DSLR, (Canon EOS XS). I can't figure out how I'm gonna carry the equipment and still have room for hiking essentials.

Now I know bringing this type of camera equipment is considered insane to the "every once counts" concept, but nature photography is a passionate hobby of mine, and as I said I probably wouldn't bring it on a multi-day hike...probably.

Any ideas, advice or suggestions???
