    Secure storage during weddings for wedding photographers

    I would like to buy a bag in which I can securely store my lenses and back up cameras during weddings. What do you use?
    I know assistant is the solution who can watch your bag but a lot of time is is just not feasable. Also, I can carry all the cameras and the lenses on me but it is impractical a lot of times...
    What I am looking for is something which is hard to take from the without somebody noticing it and I can lock it.
    Somebody suggested that I can get bags which have an alarm...
    It would be great if I didn't have to worry about my stuff all the time.

    I appreciate your help!

    Pelican hard case; what I use. Lockable, and if one of the big, wheeled ones, hard to carry away. And pay a kid $5 to sit on it—this is what I do on location. $20 if working in Sydney!

    anything with soft sides and zippers has extremely limited security capabilities (on a scale of 1-10, with 1 being the lowest, about a 2 and i think i'm being nice). Mr Laughlin has offered up the best choice of case. with this case you can choose your level of security locking/cabling to prevent inadvertent rollaway by parties unknown. the use of pacsafe products is more a placebo and preventative from more casual theft. these are easily thwarted by someone with knowledge and a single proper and relatively small hand tool. if a situation (gathering) is large enough there is the ability for a more professional sort to infiltrate the gathering and do their business. this of course is more prevelent in urban environs. in short its all relative to where you are doing business at the time.
