    Yup, when I was on overseas assignment, no mood for photography. Just get the work done and return back to hotel to sleep.

    I don't usually bring my cam when on business trip. Very little time to shoot. Usually the most memorable scenes or moments happens when you are without a camera.

    Weird enough, I'll rather keep my D60 at home, and bring a small DC instead.

    The last time I went KL when my P&S broke down, I was depressed for 3 days straight. No mood to enjoy anything.

    But it was the perfect excuse to get my 300D.

    Its been with me from short trips in Penang all the way to Sydney. My next companion is my iBook. Never leave home without these 2 for extended trips overseas or I'll kill myself.

    For vacations, I would normally bring my PnS camera, not my DSLR. (bulky) But honestly, when shooting using PnS, I do miss the functions of a DSLR. It is a trade-off. Justify it your own.

    Especially shutter lag!!!

    U scream when u have to retake the entire photo if u forget that its a matter of a *chiak*, 85ms screen blackout speed and instant capture on ur DSLR when its not on ur P&S.

    The reason I buy a camera and is interested in photography is to capture the moments during my travel. Cna't imagine not travelling without my camera. The camera is but a tool for me.

    No way man!

    Just prior to one of my trips abroad recently, my A70 died! No time to repair, I nearly wanted to rush and buy a replacement. Luckily my fren loaned me his spare cam! Phew!
