We just got back. I took my Olympus TG-4, Canon D7, and cellphone. Lost the cellphone on day 1 when something cracked the glass over the lens. Below are my observations... Olympus TG-4 When taking still images, while not walking, outdoor images with proper lighting are very good. However, many pictures I tried taking required to be done while moving: Pandora walk to FoP, walking to surf lessons at TL, and just general simple movements. Many of those pictures turned out bad. When I could stand still and take the shot, they came out great. In lower light situations, the pictures are absolutely horrible. Canon 7D It got old carrying around the weight. I chose not to this trip for the most part. I attempted to shoot RoL, but I had to jack the ISO up so high, wide open at f2.8, and a speed of 60. It just never lived up to being able to get anything. I will leave that to the experts with a lot better gear than me. I have seen some photos of what people have and they are night and day vs what I got. IMO, I am not carrying around the weight of a DSLR any more, at least not in the Summer heat. There were plenty of great shots with the P&S that the weight is not worth it. I also come to the conclusion that there are FAR better photographers than me as a picture taker. It is better to get the excellent pics from them than my junk pics. The weight and compactness of the P&S made it very easy. I realized to take 3-4 pics of each shot to insure one came out just right.
