| p.4 #6 · Gear Advice for Orlando Disney trip |
I went to Disneyland yesterday, and I've got to say, many of you are much more adventurous than I am!
I debated taking the 5D2 with 24-70L and 50/1.2L. Also prepared the Olympus E-P2 with 12-50 lens. And. . . got the G10 all charged up and ready.
In the end, I took the E-P2, but hardly took any pictures. The camera, additional flash, and battery just added to the annoying weight and bulk of a backpack-type purse (with two water bottles). Going through hour-long lines was pretty awful, and we were there for rides, not photos. Roller coaster-type rides are awkward and tight fitting for a big guy with a bag of gear. The water rides (Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc) are not my idea of fun getting my camera wet.
Next time, if I take a camera, it will be the G10 and no accessories or bag. Travel light for me.
I definitely made the right call not taking the 5D2 + lenses in the Lowepro fanny/belt pack!
