| p.1 #1 · Camera safety in Nicaragua |
Hey everyone, not sure if this is the right forum but I will be travelling to Nicaragua at the beginning of March for two weeks. I've been concerned about bringing my dslr and some lenses, as far as safety and theft are concerned. I've been overseas twice before and never really had any problems, except for once when I was in Egypt a "professional photographer" kept hassling me to let him see my 30d. Ended up telling him it was my friend's camera and he finally walked away! lol Anyways, I've heard that the capital Managua isn't really safe so I don't really plan on taking too many pictures there. I'll be going with a friend who is originally from Nicaragua but hasn't been there since he was a kid. But we will be staying with his family for the most part. If I take my gear, I plan on taking the 5d mark II, 17-40, 70-200 2.8, 1.4 TC, and 45 tilt shift and a tripod for some landscape and sunsets. OR, I was thinking of just getting a G12. What are ya'lls thoughts on this? Has anyone been to Nicaragua? I couldn't find any posts about the country on here. Any info or insights would be appreciated, thanks!
