    Perhaps one of these straps from optech might suite your needs?

    I use this for wedding work and never miss a shot because my camera's not ready. Flash not ready, yes, but not the camera.

    I wouldn't mount an F3 or any camera with a nice lens on my bike. I'm not so worried about vibrations, but I would be worried about dust, sand and gravel flying up into the camera and lens.

    If i were you I might try to rig up some sort of system like a rear rack.

    Well, depending on your exact requirements you could simply mount a bar-bag on your handlebars. I do this and can lay my hands on the camera within a few seconds. Most bags will take a 35mm + zoom & some will take MF equipment. By the way I have never had any problems with vibration causing damage to any of my cameras when carried in a suitable pannier or bar-bag on any of my bikes, over a period of 25 years or so.

    Kerry: I wish I had come across this bracket a year or so ago: I would have loved to make some video's with this on my travels on my motor-bike through Brazil.
    If I come back to Brazil after September I will order one.

    Wolfeye: this kind of strap I was thinking about in the first place.

    And it shure has become a very informative thread !

    I picked up one of these "ultramounts" recently to secure a small P&S camera to my motorbike, and it works fine as long as its strapped to a part of the bike that has the least vibration (frame, crash bars, etc.). About $30.

    Hey, that ultramount looks like just the thing I've been looking for. I'm not worried about vibration so much--I don't plan to use it while the bike is actually moving. I just don't want to have to carry a tripod.
