    haha...
    for me, i prefer to travel light.
    i don't wish to have my camera as a "big burden". just want to enjoy the trip without worrying about the camera. hence i brought up this topic.
    thanks for the input!

    Nope, except that they will always get suspicious when they scan the tripod in my check in luggage.

    I'm pretty much with sammy888 on style of travel photography. However, travelling light is still high priority, so, eg, I chose 70-200f4 instead of 70-200f2.8 etc

    But now, think age catching up... need to cut down on lens and/or get lighter body liao...
    Either that, or cut down on rough-it-out backpacking trips.....

    That would be like renting DSLR + Lense everywhere you go...... do anyone do that

    Anyway.... most rental dive gears are of lower 'standard'..... some not even well look after

    Thanks. I did considered Pentax b4. Heard many gd reviews about it. But the lenses like quite limited leh...

    Most prob maybe i'll get a D40 (or D40x). Then sometimes if i go for event shooting, i can use two camera and share my lenses among them, no need to change lenses that often.

    I will be going to Taiwan next Jan 08.

    I am worried that the cold weather will affect my camera (it is winter at that time). Another thing is the moist weather if there are frequent rainfall.

    What can I do to protect my camera? I intending to put a few packets of silica gel in my camera bag but will I have a problem with airport security?

    Sorry, first time.

    Thank you.

    What system are you using? How cold can Taiwan get in winter?

    I am just back from Canada which is at -1 degrees. Shooting with my 30D and all is fine!

    I am using Olympus E510. Temperature should be ard 10 degrees. I am more worried bout the moist weather rather than cold.

    Should I bring both my lenses 1) 14-42mm 2) 40-150mm or just 1 will do. If bring one only, which one should I bring? The salesperson whom I bought the camera from told me the 14-42mm lense will be enough.

    What is you guys opinion on that? Feel free to give me some feedbacks. Thank you.

    Moist weather? I believe Singapore is one of the moistest weather you have in the world :P

    Anywayz, for my trip I brought my 17-40 and 70-200. Never regretted as both has their own purposes for travel photography

    my bag even open up for checking around 33% of the time. They suspect it is a rifle or something. now i just travel with a small, cheap, plastic tripod from carrefour whenever i can. i travel with prosumer + pns, or with just one tele lens + pns. i'm in the travel-light-enjoy-trip camp.

    There you have it, if you want a smaller cam (DSLR), you should consider what is your current system and setup, so you can share lens/flash/accessories. Unless you have intention to have 2 systems.

    If you travel often, a Leica M8 is a dream camera to use (if you don't mind the price of course).

    Otherwise I would seriously consider either a Ricoh GX100 or Leica D-LUX 3.

    I always believe that if you have already travelled all the way to a place, you better have all that is neccessary to capture the beauty of the place and bring it back with you. Unless you always travel to that place very often, then it's a different story altogther ...
    You also sound like me

    Since my gf will only like to travel to a place just ONCE, it is very important for me to have all the necessary stuffs (but not enough money) to make sure lotsa nice pictures are taken. There was once I accidentally deleted all the pictures from the card without proper backup to the HDD and I almost got killed for it...
