    You will take more photographs if you carry it around your neck against your chest, without a case front, ie. ready for instant use, considerably less, if it's in a case over your shoulder or stuffed out of the way in a pocket or backpack. Depending on your activity this might not always be possible but when it is, do it. A trial will prove my point.

    No case, attached to leather strap just long enough to carry cross shouldered so it won't swing around like a loose cannon and kill and maim everything within two feet! Slower to bring to bear when carried this way but whose talking street shooting?

    I carry my camera in Tamrac case on a belt (like a fanny pack). My meter fits in the case's front pocket.

    I'm doing this right now, and it does not affect my street shooting. I just meter, set the SLR, and shoot.

    I have a plastic clip on the strap of mine that I can put through my belt loop, or the hole in my jacket zipper, or my camera bag strap. Them I just put the meter in my pocket or one of the open pockets of my camera bag. If it falls out, it's still attached to me and I don't lose it.

    I bought a cheap small digi camera pouch with a belt clip attached and cut the bottom out for the handle and just dropped the meter in and closed the pouch. It felt good to be able to dismember the digi camera case for a better purpose. Still might look suspiciously like a gun but up in Canada its probably the last thing people would think. Of course I usually have the camera gear on me as well!

    I carry my Pentax Spotmeter in the side pocket of one of those geeky photographer's vests. The pocket is deep enough to allow the velcro fastened flap to secure.

    I use a Kinesis vertical accessory pouch A126 for my Pentax Spot meter. You can wear on a your belt, their belt or clip a camera strip to the D rings and wear it over your shoulder. Check out the rest of their gear. My favorite is the belt which I can attach different pouches for lenses or 120/220 magazines and other items. I leave one empty pouch to insert the lens or magazine in while I am change to another lens or magazine - this feature I like. Oh, you can use the belt for their backpack. I used this combination when I traveled to Czech Republic and Germany.

    Gordy's wrist strap (APUG sponsor) for me. I can carry it around my wrist, or in a jacket pocket. Or in a purse, which is obviously not an option for some. -Laura
