Perhaps I should have explained that it is not really feasible to carry anything on my body. I sit in a seat with a back with my legs stretched out in front of me to reach the pedals, so I can't put anything on my back. Also, having something on my side or chest wouldn't really be feasible. I could in principle hang the camera over my neck sticking out in front, but I would be hitting it all the time with my hands.

So I need to put the equipment either on the back or on the side in a carrier or perhaps in a trailer which I would pull with the trike.
