A Mini Army

You're pretty much looking at my arsenal of cameras for the Philippines. Actually, for the past couple of weeks,  deciding on which cameras to pack and which to leave behind has become the million dollar question here at the Finley apartment.  Should I bring my Canon SLR? Should I not? Also, the only lens we have right now for the Canon is a 50mm which is great for shooting portraits but not so great for shooting landscapes. When I started thinking about possibly borrowing/renting lenses,  it turned into this BIG thing!  Then I started thinking about getting one of those Nikon point and shoot cameras with the interchangeable lenses (regrettably the one that Ashton Kutcher endorses)  but that would have run around $1,000 so that was a no-brainer.  It also came down to whether or not I wanted a hassle-free trip. With these little guys, I won't have to deal with the size of an SLR and it's heightened security precautions and I would have the freedom to travel more light and efficient.  Heck, I can even take 8mm video with my iPhone thanks to this little app!

  1. Hi Christina,

    So funny, I thought the same thing about Asston but I bought the Nikon J1 anyway.

    It was totally worth the $750 since my Nikon D3000 is enormous and heavy. Please tell me where you got your Fuji camera bag! So cute.
