I used to develop back and shoulder pain from carrying around a heavy bag with two SLR bodies, lenses, flash, etc. Switching to the lightweight mirrorless Sony's certainly has improved matters. Even so, my back still starts to bug me after doing a lot of walking with a camera bag slung over my shoulder. If your camera bag accepts a waist strap/belt, using one can make a big difference, at least that's what I've found. I have a fairly compact old Tamrac bag that has a built-in waist strap. Glad I held onto it. Depends on where the back hurts. Mine is below the waist so I can wear a small waist bag with maybe one small to medium lens in it. For a limited time, even then. I generally have my car nearby and if I must change lenses, I prefer to do it there. Less dust and dirt exposure, also. I usually only have my camera with lens in my hands, no strap, and carry nothing else. Using zooms most of the time helps. And shooting mirrorless helps even more. I’m in eyesight of my vehicle all of the time when shooting my Fuji, so no worries about break-ins. if I’m going to walk about more, then that’s when the RX100-mk 3 comes in handy.
