Best ways to lock/secure a remote camera ?

->> I'm looking for advice on how to best lock/ secure a remote camera. Not so much from the safety/keep it from falling situation but how to lock it when it's too far away from my shooting position. I've got some baseball games where I'll be at 3rd base and want a camera at 1st and may not be able to keep an eye on it at all times. Thanks.

->> I have used a safety chain and lock to secure the remote to rails or fencing. You can use zip ties or key rings on the camera strap eyelets. That is not fool proof but for me it has kept people from taking the camera during long tournament days.

Don't forget to use the chain to lock up the pocket wizard and lens if you can.

->> So what you can do is get a pelican case, just larger than the camera body. Make sure is has holes for padlocking shut. Use a hole saw and drill a hole just larger than the lens mount in the bottom.

Put the lens through the hole and attache it to the camera body. You can pull the foam out of the case if you like.

You can use the lens collar to mount assuming you are using 70-200 or greater.

Then padlock the case shut with a piece of chain around the railing. Pocket wizard inside, or a small hole for the antenna or sink line to get out.
