If you’re like me, running and photography are two of your favorite hobbies.
What could be better than combining the two together and capturing beautiful moments during your runs?
In this blog post, I will provide useful tips and product recommendations on how to carry a mirrorless camera while running. Having the camera with you on your run is a great way to capture unique photos that you wouldn’t normally get the opportunity to take.
Let’s get started!
How to Run With a Camera?
There are a number of accessories that you can use to carry your camera with you while running, such as a running belt, running vest, running backpack, or running chest pouch.
From my personal experience, I have found that the most efficient way to run with a camera is by using running vests or running backpacks. They can be adjusted precisely to fit your body shape and hold the camera securely in place without any bouncing around.
I have handpicked a selection of both running backpacks and running vests, perfect for carrying your mirrorless camera while you run.
