    Default Bringing camera to beach holiday

    If you are going for a holiday at some beach resort like Phuket, will you bring your DSLR camera with you??

    Not worry about getting wet and sand into the camera?

    I think at least protect your lens with a filter loh.

    the tricky part is if you use extendable zoom lenses and when the wind blows, sand or salt water (after drying become salt) will get sucked into the lens

    Of course you can bring it to the beach.

    Just take reasonable precautions, i.e. filter, keep away from sand and wipe down the camera at the end of the day with a damp cloth.

    Worry so much? Dun shoot at all. Leave it at home.

    Nuff said. End of story.

    You've answered your own question - worried about sand and water? Then don't drop the cam in the water or on the beach, problem solved.

    Camera buy already don't think so much. Use it fullest.

    I had used my camera during the peroid of sandstorm in Beijing, bring it to kelong in malaysia, use at night when fishing in boat, to the -7 degree or so in europe plus the suffering inside my motorcycle box under hot sun and vibration for long distance journey out of sg.

    To me is, since I bought it...use it! Think so much will restrict yourself. Of cos, not forgetting to take precaution when possible.

    Plan your activities carefully. When I went to Bintan with my gf, I bought 2 cameras... a DSLR and a PnS. For beach activities when I foresee myself going into water, playing etc, just bring along PnS. For other things, then bring DSLR. Good planning can save you a bit of hassle!
