I wonder if it's safe to put my digicam int the full-packed backpack. Some friends suggested I should put around my neck with a rope. But i think it's uncomfortable!

Pls advise.

Providing it's hidden in the backpack (and not half hanging out) it will be fine. The only probelem with that is you have to keep putting it in/take it out which can get annoying over the course of a day or longer

If its a compact get a pouch for it that u can slip on a belt and if its a bigger SLR you could get a camera bag or shoulderbag for it. That way it will be accesable and protected. Hanging it around your neck is advertizing to thiefs.

I always carry my digital camera (along with other valuables) in a shoulder sling bag which zips up. Makes it easy to grab the camera when a photo opportunity arises.
