I see all the great vacation holiday photographs here on this website and my mind was boggled by choosing cameras for my own upcoming adventure. I see those of you who are die hard fans of a single camera they take on every trip and those who seem to have a bag filled to the brim with different cameras to capture their travels. I marvel at your collective results.
On prior trips since getting back into film, I chose to take the Ultra Wide & Slim to Las Vegas. The Diana F+ accompanied us to Toronto ( very happy with that choice) and a Smena 8m came with me on an emergency trip to Los Angeles. I wanted to change it up this year.
Some of you have kindly given your suggestions as to what I should take on my summer holiday. Those of you who have mentioned a Horizon camera have definitely convinced me.
I purchased the Horizon almost two years ago, but only recently have I appreciated the camera for its attributes. Also, I am happy I won’t be limited by batteries or DX coding.
I am limiting myself to one or two more camera and I think a pinhole will be my next choice. I am participating in the the Lomo Luke project and if he arrives before I depart, I will take him and a third camera sure to capture his adventure with me in three states.
