    Default taking care of my camera while travelling

    i'm intending to travel to a beachy tourist destination and currently in two minds about bringing my DSLR. Thoughts people? Any tips on taking care of it in such a location?

    depends on what you plan on doing at this beachy place

    is shooting or chilling going to be on the agenda?

    decide from there

    Get a uv filter if u have not.
    No matter how careful, wind will still often bring sand onto cam.
    More importantly, avoid instinct to wipe. Rather go back hotel then slowly use blower/lens pen whatever.

    1. What lense will you bring with you? That will determine the weight. Decide if you are strong enough to carry it. Walking on sandy beach is harder than paved road.

    2. What will you do on the beach? That determine the risk in case you leave the camera - it might get lost.
