Hey guys! Great pictures! Didn't even know this thread existed! I need a little help from you guys..
I'm going to Disneyland (As well as SeaWorld) next week, taking my 5 year old daughter, and I thought about buying a waterproof Panasonic Lumix camera and leaving my T4i at home. After seeing this thread, I'm kind of ditching that thought.
I am worried about getting my camera + lens wet though. And what about rides such as Splash Mountain - what do I do with my camera? I'm planning on buying a camera bag found on this craigslist ad http://portland.craigslist.org/wsc/ele/4503753488.html, will it be ok for me to bring on the rides? What did you guys do with yours?
I purchased the 2-day hopper and I assume my daughter will spend most of the time in the kid attraction area but I did show her Splash Mountain, Tower of Terror, and Grizzly River Run via YouTube and she's excited to go on!
It'll be my 4th time there and Disneyland and maybe my 10-15th time at SeaWorld so I'll be ok spending time where she wants to go
I use a Lowepro Passport sling bag. The only REAL wet rides are the Grizzly River Run and Splash Mountain. However, you'll only have to worry about Splash Mountain as Grizzly River Run is closed for renovations with no re-opening date. With those two rides, I keep an XLarge 2'x1.7' Ziplock bag, to put the camera bag and whatever else that we don't want wet into, folded up small in the camera bag or back pocket of my shorts. Otherwise, my 6D is locked into a Peak Design Capture Pro on the bag's strap. and placed on the floor behind my feet on all the rides.
