 Hm, I didn't realise there was that little clearance between front and back -- 
the one I use to tote water/repair kit/etc around only sits maybe 8" off my 
back at most, but I suppose there's aerodynamic advantages to being right up 
next to one another.

 Panniers? It'd be a bit rattlier, but if you got something like this: 


it would solve that problem, and you could put on one of those seatpost-mounted 
rear racks to keep it suspended relative to the road. Those have a 30lb weight 
limit or something, that's still a fair bit of camera kit. I guess it's getting 
further and further away from 'quick' -- possibly you could look at sewing 
pannier hooks onto the back of a camera bag and a stiffening plate in there to 
keep it from swinging around too much, but I'll admit it's a trickier problem 
than I'd first thought.
