    i’d take your slr – the images you’d get would be priceless – just make sure that you have insurance!

    I brought my Nikon point and shoot, I bought a water resistant case for it, and then we brought our Kodak Playsport video camera, it’s waterproof so we got some great video snorkeling, on the dune buggies, and on our catamaran ride.

    OMG take the DSLR! I didn’t want to drag it with me and NOW I TOTALLY REGRET IT!!!

    Instead we took two underwater cameras and a point and shoot. 🙁

    Depends where you’re going, but I can’t imagine not having taken our DSLR. We went to Africa though, so I guess it really does depend.

    I just bought the Sony mirrorless so that I wouldn’t have to haul the DSLR around.  Same quality just a smaller camera body.

    But for you take the DSLR.  You will be sad to get your pics back and you won’t be able to enlarge them.

    DSLR and point and shoot, but we used the DSLR for the majority of pictures.  We just got back from another trip (honeymoon and this past trip were in Europe) and we took both cameras again.  And again, the DSLR was used almost exclusively.  We have some awesome pictures!

    On our first holiday together we took (now) DH’s best DSLR (he has three) and he managed to drop it. We then spent a day dealing with the fallout in Florence followed by several weeks of hassle woth insurance. 

    For our honeymoon, he bought a Panasonic Lumix which we could take snorkelling, splash about with in the pool and put in a pocket easily. We got some amazing shots and didn’t have to worry about it.

    Another minor factor to consider, from the point of view of a local in a tourist city, a tourist with a DSLR is pretty much instantly marked out as a probable pain in the ass (and in other places marks you out to pickpockets and con artists as an easy mark – same rule applies to visible fanny packs).

    I have a dslr…but I am just using the camera on my iPhone. We are going to Disney World and I don’t want to lug it around! I think it depends on where your going.
