    Default Would you bring a compact or DSLR for your holiday with your family?

    As title stated, would you bring your compact or DSLR or m4/3 system for your family holiday?

    Places that you would visit is basically tourist locations, theme parks, attractions and shopping outlets/centres.

    I'm mainly travelling free and easy with my family when at most locations, so we have enough time to spare to take pics of scenery.

    Would you find it a chore to lug a camera bag there with such a heavy set-up plus your "travel backpack" packed with travel essentials whenever out of the hotel?

    i would opt to bring a ultra light set-up for DSLR and a small compact.

    that's it... i don't wanna forget the point of going on a holiday.

    let me emphasise this is a family holiday... not photography trip

    A D50 with 18-200, and a compact.

    DSLR for me to use, compact for the family to take pictures of me.

    Of course, the compact can be used to ask others to help take family group picture.

    Agree on this
    Compact can also use for movie.

    It all depends on the weight tolerance of individual. Some can take 2 kg (of back pack) for whole day out; some can take 4 kg, but only half day.

    wah siao, 1D leh... damn heavy... plus 16-35 and 70-200? i think i will only bring the 16-35 if i were you.... are you gonna bring them all if you're going to niseko again end-year?

    but your speed freak will be good for urban shooting, it's damn easy to carry around (waist bag).

    i make sure my family is suckered into going into one or two locations i really want to go to,

    and then i bring my usual "travel setup", i.e. 10-20 + 70-300 + 50mm and k20d (color body).. sometimes k100d ir + kit lens mounted, as well.

    can stuff into hadley pro actually.
