Does Camera Size Matter?

Does Camera Size Matter
Photo-A-Day #1990

In Three days we are going to Walt Disney World. We’ve been there a few times before, like last May and so and each and every time we go I carry around a backpack full of cameras, diapers and other things to get us through the day. This trip I am going to try things a little differently. I’m still going to have the backpack and the diap… um Pull Ups, but a few days I am going to go sans DSLR. I’m not taking my laptop, just my iPad and not taking multiple video cameras, just the 1 Kodak PlaySport HD Waterproof Pocket Video Camera. I’ll give Eva my old Canon SD 800is and I’ll be shooting mostly on my Nikon D80 DSLR (on the DSLR days ) and also on a new Kodak EasyShare M580 14MP Digital Camera with 8x Wide Angle Optical Zoom and 3.0 Inch LCD . I should be receiving that in the mail right before we leave for Disney. I’m placing a lot of faith on our mail system lately and they are not always living up to that faith.

The cameras featured in the photo are not really cameras at all. PhotoJojo has some fun camera related toys that I purchased. The medium camera is actually a 4GB USB drive and the little tiny camera is a toy with interchangeable lenses too. More fun stuff for my desk at work.

  1. Do you have a recommendation for someone looking to take primarily Back&White Fine art style photos with a digital.


  2. I like your plan for taking just the minimum about of equipment needed. It is burdensome to carry around a lot of heavy camera equipment on vacation. As a parent, you should get to enjoy yourself too. I only carry my Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS5 camera. I bought it because it takes great photos and video and fits in my purse.

    1. Jackie,
      I do like the freedom of having a point and shoot with me over having the DSLR. We’ll see how it goes and if I am happy with how the photos come out.

    1. Deborah, They are some fun cameras alright, I love the tiny one. I’m going to do an interesting photo with that one today. Maybe.

  3. I’m so excited you are being “frugal” with your cameras and such on this trip!! You are going to have the best trip and enjoy your time with your lovely family:)

    1. Mo,

      This new camera is awesome. So excited to use it. The only thing that might be a hassle is the battery life, but we shall see.

  4. Initially, I am curious about your picture above. They look like real cameras. Personally I am using a Kodak dx6440. It’s quite old model but I am satisfied with its picture quality.
