I'm trying to decide which combination of electronics to take with me on my trip to Vienna in a few months. I have a DSLR but I am by no means a professional photographer. I love using it, but I'm more concerned with the added weight of the camera than anything else. I could easily take my small point and shoot, but then I feel like I'm going backwards in photo quality, but that may be worth giving up considering how small and light the point and shoot is.
Has anybody ever regretted leaving a dslr at home?
I also need to figure out what to bring for internet connectivity. Though I think I'm leaning pretty strongly toward the ipad for it's size and minimal space. I thought I might want the laptop to load photos and edit video, but I think I'll just take multiple SD cards and leave uploading and video editing for when I get home.
Though...if I leave the weight of the laptop at home, then maybe the weight of the dslr isn't so bad. I'm staying in an apartment in Vienna the entire week, so once I get settled, all the stuff will stay in the room and I can pick and choose what to take with me for the day, meaning if I wanted to feel less weighed down for a day, I could leave the dslr behind and just rely in my iphone.
Thoughts? Although, typing this out had helped clarify things a bit, I think. Ipad yes, laptop no. What to do about the camera situation?
