Scenes from a Road Trip: Multiple Cameras for Multiple Tasks
Trip Plans and Cameras
In June 2011 I set off on a two-month roundtrip journey across the United States, heading east across the northern states and returning west across the South. My luggage consisted of a suitcase, a computer bag, and three cameras: a Canon EOS Rebel XTi DSLR with an 1855 mm lens with image stabilizer; a well-loved (read: beaten-up) Leica D-LUX 3 point-and-shoot; and the camera on my ubiquitous iPhone 4. It wasn't long before I realized that I was using each camera for different tasks according its specifications and particular functions.
