What are you packin'?

I love shooting!

For landscape stuff, I have a 5d and a bunch of glass to go with.

For the bike though, I usually carry a small camera like an SD800is. I've had more than a
few P&S cameras and each has some feature that makes it suitable for the job.

I carry my camera in my jacket pocket so I can shoot while riding. I keep the camera on
a lanyard in the off chance I will have to drop it onto the tank bag.

So what do you shoot with?

I still occasionally carry around my Nikon Coolpix 5700, but find myself more and more limiting myself to using only my point and shoot Panasonic Lumix FX01. It actually has a nice little 28-100 mm Zeiss lens on it that gets some sharp pictures. Plus it fits just about anywhere.

This one here is from the Glossglockner in the Austrian Alps

Beautiful photo.

I carry my Canon SD900 as it has 10mp in order to blow up photos or edit with ease. I use it on my sailboat and travels. I gave up the old SLR as it was heavy and bulky. These new P&S cameras can be easuly manipulated..and they are great for the unexpected opportunities..

Today's P&S cameras are so far from what we think of as a cheap carry 'round
camera. There's a lot of value for the money in them.

You can do such cool stuff--like easy peasy pano shots...

Similar shot to the Austrian Alps pic. This one taken in BC in 2005. I had just picked up the KS. Just realized, exactly 2 years ago today!

SD800is.

Image Stabilization, wide angle, plenty of megapixels, and almost instant boot-up. Stays in a special pocket on the top of my tankbag... let's me get some great pics on-the-fly...

'packing' an oly e-1 with

1 too many lenses (8mm fisheye (my fav fun lens), 14mm-54mm (not used yet), 54mm-200mm, and a 1.4 teleconverter). Note: with the Oly DSLR's its a 2x crop factor, effectively doubling the focal lengths mentioned here.

In my jacket pocket i had a fuji F10 until i left it below the high tide mark beside a fjord in Norway about one week into my ride. Replaced it with an oly mu 770 (waterproof to 10 meters ;-)

I was moving pretty fast in Norway, and found it was only evenings I'd dig out the DSLR. The p&s Oly is fine, but as with all new cams it will take me a while to come to grips with it. I'm now moving more slowly and settled into a pattern of camping/staying a few nights in one place - riding without luggage 2nd day etc, so the DSLR is coming out more often.

I pack the dslr and three lenses in my top box, as my pannier 'latches' are buried under my roll type dry bag tied across the seat behind me.

Wide Angle lenses rock and it's one of my favorite lenses to shoot with.

16-35 and 10-22 are two of Canon's offerings. Then there's the 15mm fisheye--my
favorite.

I "had" a sony point and shoot. Unfortunately I dropped it while riding on my last trip but got some great pics before that.
