help with camera dilemma to florence and venice

Jump to last reply

my hubby and i argue about his wanting to take his Canon D7 camera and zoom lens to our forthcoming trip to croatia, florence and venice. he wants to bring his camera backpack ( which btw will count as 1 carry on piece when we board our easyjet flight from Split to Milan, which is another story but not to digress...). he is not a professional photographer or a big photography hobbyist. i.e. he takes pictures of special occasions or when we are vacationing within in the US which is the extent of his taking pictures. he knows how to use his camera and i would admit that 70% of the time, takes nice pictures, but that's just my opinion because im no expert in photography myself.

i asked him to not bring the camera because we will be moving around quite a bit, on trains, buses, easyjet flight. and having the camera backpack wherever we go might make him a target ( and maybe an easy one at that ) for pickpockets and thieves. he says he'll carry the backpack in front of him but i say that he might still be distracted just trying to get the camera in and out of the backpack.

please help us with your wise advice. i will let my husband read your responses to this post and hopefully one of us will be swayed for or against bringing the big camera. btw, we have a great point and shoot digital camera with 14MP resolution, which i think is adequate for travel purposes, it's compact and light and easily fits into a small purse. but then this is just my opinion.

thanks in advance for your help.
