I'm having this dilemma but I think I've made my decision... Heading to Southern Utah, then Vegas, then Disneyland (2 Days), and Huntington Beach for 1/2 a day with JUST me and my daughter (just so you know the circumstances in helping me decide): A: D700 w/ 50mm 1.4 (simple setup) Also bring G9 to have... Panasonic HD Camcorder (super compact one) B: G9 Panny HD Cam (these two will fit in a small small sling bag) Has anyone brought backpacks into Disney (I might just bring my LowePro backpack into Disney even if I don't take my DSLR)? I'm just curious if you can go on rides with a backpack on or in your lap? This is my daughter's first trip to Disneyland, so it's special of course, but hauling around my camera and then having to worry about theft, banging it up, weight, is really unappealing. Ya, the G9 isn't great, but I plan on shooting in RAW the whole time and a huge appeal other than the downsides to bringing the DSLR, is that I can just enjoy the time more so, whereas with my DSLR, it'll be an added stress. This might be a messy and un-thought out post, sorry. Just don't want to regret not bringing my camera, but don't want to regret bringing it as well. Thanks as usual chaps.
