i am going on a 2 week trip to Israel to visit some family. i am considering bringing my 50D and 24-70 (my only lens at the moment). to POTNers who have been there, i ask did you feel safe carrying the camera out on the street?
i have been to the country many times, but never really paid attention to cameras. the police/military presence on the streets is tremendous, which lends to safety. most of the time i will be walking around with my cousins so i am thinking the safety WONT be an issue... just wanting make sure.
on the other hand, maybe ill just take an S95. ive seen all the sights, and have pics of most. so i guess i would mostly look for pics of going out with my cousins and their friends, family shots, and some scenery from walking around. granted, all have been with crappy PnS and not a lovely 50D+24-70 combo, but still i hesitate to bring bulky equipment, having to carry it around in 90 degree heat.
i guess mostly i am thinking out loud, but welcome suggestions/opinions/thoughts.
