Photographic Equipment and Excursions

Jump to last reply

We are taking our first trip to Alaska in June with 5 day land package (Denali/McKinley) before the 7 day cruise south to Vancouver. I have a large camera backpack that holds
a DSLR, 3 lenses and a flash. It is heavy but I don't mind the extra weight. Still I wonder about excursions to glaciers, flyovers, whale watching, etc.and schlepping the big bag with me in wet conditions vs. getting a high end point and shoot and leaving the big camera at home or back on the ship. Has any other amateur photog taken the big bag only to regret not traveling lighter?
