I'll be traveling (driving) to New Orleans for my wife's mini family reunion in March and am dithering about what I want to haul with me.
I can travel light with just my Powershot G11 (I did that for a recent trip to Las Angeles and other points west. It was nice to not lug a heavy bag with me and the IQ was acceptable...but I found myself missing longer focal lengths and better IQ with the DSLR)
I could just take my SX50 HS for its versatility (lightweight, 50X zoom)
I could take an Olympus E520 and a couple of lenses (lightweight, fits in a small bag)
I can bite the bullet and bring one of my DSLRs with 2-3 lenses, and have to deal with a heavier bag.
We'll be staying in the French Quarter, mostly, but there is a chance that I'll go on a bayou tour as well.
What would you take?
