I'm going to Orlando in late May and intend to visit all of the amusement parks and ride every coaster possible. Cameras aren't typically allowed on rides, and a DSLR would be a pain to either hold on to or be to worrisome to leave on the platform. I would really like to take my Rebel T3i for the image quality. However, I would probably have to leave it in places I wouldn't feel comfortable leaving it since I want to ride everything. I also have a Powershot SX120 IS. I've had this with me at parks before and it's small enough that I can put it in my pocket, and therefore won't have to leave it anywhere. I like the image quality on it, and it has manual controls.


Which camera would you recommend I bring with me? Right now I'm either bringing both, or just the Powershot.

Mods, I'm sorry, I realized too late I probably should have put this in the "Travel Talk" section.


Canon Rebel T3i - 18-55mm Kit lens- Canon 75-300mm f/4-5.6 - Rokinon 8mm Fish Eye - Canon 40mm f/2.8 Pancake - Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM

Just the powershot is fine. It's not like it's going to be a million dollar image of a rollercoaster ride in the middle of the day.

And for the best picture, it might be worth it to pay 5 bucks for the ride camera. They have the angles and other technical details worked out.
