Brining a DSLR to Europe

Jump to last reply

Let me preface this by saying I'm fairly well travelled, all over Mexico, Scandinavia, Russia, USA, and the UK but have yet to go to mainland Europe besides Estonia, all done with a pocket sized point and shoot

For me and my GF's trip to France, Italy, Switzerland, I plan on bringing my DSLR (T5i) is it a problem walking around with a DSLR around your neck at all?

Honestly besides the language barrier most places I go I try to feel at home and as safe as possible, rarely have I ever felt afraid or worried in my travels and the most worried I've probably felt are in areas of the states over being to more "foreign" countries

As well as being reasonably street smart I'm also 6'1 225 so typically I'm not one to by trifled with but if walking around with a DSLR is just trouble than I'm not sure I'll bring it along

Thoughts?
