Hi.. a couple weeks ago there was a discussion about camera clips with a link to peak design camera clips (I would include the link but don't know how). I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with one of these and if it is worth getting or not. I would be using it with a nikon 3200 with a Tamron 18-270 lens. The pro clip is about $80.00, and with a bundle including a few accessories it's closer to $150.00... would love to be able to carry my camera on me for motorcycle touring so I don't have to keep getting it out of the trunk. I'm wondering if it is as secure as the video makes it out to be

So, wearing a DLSR on your body somewhere (hip, chest, somewhere else?) while riding a motorcycle?

I used to ride, but never carried anything bulky on me for fear if a cager caused me to get into an accident I wouldn't to hit the deck with something strapped onto me.

I don't know anything about Peak Design but for future reference with links, just copy the http address from the address bar then paste it into your post.

An un-bagged un-protected camera strapped to your hip at X MPH guess it would be covered in bugs like a car windscreen, and boy if you did have an accident it wouldn't do you any good!

I understand that part, but I have a full windshield and fairing and for the most part I am very shielded. I'm more interested in finding out about the product and seeing if it actually works. It wouldn't be just for the bike and even then it won't be a constant thing.

I have the peak design carrier and it works as advertised but it is small and a bit awkward especially if one has excess bulk around the middle. It works better if you attach it to your backpack strap or sling strap. I just discovered cotton carrier (cottoncarrier.com)and ordered their belt or strap carrier. They also make a good harness system which might solve your problem while riding. All of their stuff comes with safety strap just in case drop it or lose control. check it out

I carry my D7000 on a Peak Design clip on my backpack shoulder harness when I hike. Of course, I also keep the strap around my neck just in case.

I am not sure about carrying a DLSR this way on a bike.
