    I'm pretty sure I have looked at almost every possible carry solution for a PEN camera.
    Yet this forum seems to be very resourceful and you never know... so here we go...

    • A way to carry an Olympus PEN PL3 (or PM-1), in between having it in a case or wrist-strapped.
    • Can be attached to belt
    • Fit for cycling and walking.
    • Designed for quick retrieval
    • Should work regardless of lens size

    What I am not looking for:
    • Spider camera holster
      (from what I have seen I think the camera will bounce around due to its low weight)
    • A case or pouch like the LowePro Apex 100
      (because camera and lens are entirely in the bag, this means it only works for small lenses and the case is bigger than needed for me)
    • shoulder holsters
      (to me they are inconvenient and they are more easily mistaken for actual gun holsters)

    The closest thing I have found so far is this one.
    It is however quite expensive and I am not sure whether it is secure for a PL3 as the body is just as tall as the lens mount.

    I would be happy to receive any product suggestions or DIY advice
    - especially as the question may be too specific...
