It’s not practical to take a big, heavy DSLR camera on some trips.
When I cycled Australia’s longest bike trail I had to choose between food and underwear. Weight is a big issue when trekking too. Having a chronic condition of the spine means I have to carefully consider my load more than most. It’s the main reason I’ve clung to my point and shoot for on-the-go adventures.
Of course you need an enormous zoom if you’re trying to photograph a nat on a bear’s ass or pap Posh Spice on a trip to the moon. But I have to think of weight when I’m trying to get to places on two feet or wheels and I want something handy I can whip out in a flash and hopefully capture the scene.
What’s your dog’s dodars of the point and shoot?
