Hey,

I am off to oludeniz in turkey on Monday and have a quick question.I plan on going paragliding of the mountain and want to take my camera with me. Trouble is I will be 2000m up and if I drop my camera from that height it is definitely going to break :D

So my question is what is the best way to secure my camera to my body?

Thanks

I dont think anything will secure your camera... get a simple P&S Id say!

I do have a old P&S that is quite good but was really hoping to take the dslr up. If this is not possible then I will take the P&S up.

Hmm. Belt system, with the strap tied to it? Perhaps also secure a strap to the tripod mount for redundancy.
