Sony Cyber- Shot, When it comes to traveling with a camera, especially internationally, the main goal is quality pictures with minimum weight.
Personally I recently made the mistake of only taking a camera phone with me on a hike with an extremely gorgeous girl to Hanging Lake over this past summer. It wasn’t an international trip, but it was extra fun and after looking back at the pictures I was extremely disappointed because up close they were fine, but add just a little distance to the mix, and the camera couldn’t do that pretty Nepalese girl justice. That’s when I started kicking myself because I had recently bought the RX100, and it seems to be the perfect mix of quality versus compactness, I mean I can throw it in my back pocket and almost forget it’s there. Anyways next time I’ll hopefully remember it, or maybe if I’m luck by next time I’ll have upgraded to the RX1R 🙂
