    Nobody told me I'd get sore shoulders from wearing my camera backpack while hiking. Seriously, it's day two of my holiday and I don't know how my shoulders will get through the next 5 days :anguished:

    I know that feeling, if I take my backpack when I go hiking with my camera I end up taking too much gear. Camera and battery pack plus 100mm-400mm lens and a 150mm-600mm lens and extra batteries and filters oh and a 90mm macro lens and tripod.
    Then my camel-bag with 2 liters of water.
    I need to buy a donkey.

    I don't have enough willpower to lug all my equipment around, lol, and my BF doesn't like me to spend too much time taking pictures anyway. My pack yesterday was only 4kg! Stupid 'bony' shoulders!

    Could you pad the straps? That is what I tend to do. Wrap a t-shirt round them, perhaps?

    Thanks for the suggestion, I'll have a look around to see if I have anything usable.

    If I just take the camera and lens attached I hook it to a belt I got from Aliexpress. I grabbed a small belt clip to hold it which allows me to grab it when needed otherwise it hangs from my waste. Having a lot of problems with a 30 year old whiplash anything straining my neck hurts.rdu7jsznounw.jpg

    Time to trade your BF in then. My wife does not object when I go walk abouts for 3-4 hours with my camera. She's probably happy for the peace and quiet lol.

    We're hiking together :wink: He doesn't like it when we stop too often, breaks the rhythm. Especially if I want to do macro photography, 20 or 30 shots of the same butterfly to make sure I have a decent picture :lol:

    That sounds like something I would do :lol:

    After all these years my husband better understands my love of sky pictures and will actually pull over if possible so I can get a decent shot without windows or windshields in the way. The other day there was a wall of rainbow, something I had never seen before, nor did I know such a phenomenon could happen and he sighed, then kept driving past our destination so I could get a better shot :heart: . For many years he would tell me to just put the camera down and look, make a memory of it instead (not in a rude way, he just didn’t understand why I would take so many pictures of the same clouds/sunset/etc. trying to get the right shot),

    This is so me. XD My husband has gotten used to me stopping to take a million pictures. On the bright side, I have some amazing pictures that I will someday get printed on metal to hang.
