Which camera?

All night I have been packing and unpacking my DSLR. I have a normal small digital camera that is coming for sure but I cant decide if I should bring the bigger one or not. My main concern is damage in the park and wondered if you guys think it would be worthwhile to bring it. I mean it would be cool to get some decent shots of the parks.
Want to be there already. No sleep tonight

I don't take my DSLR's into the parks. I take my PTBS camera for video and candid shots. I don't relish carting the weight for one thing....and another -- I shoot for a living, so if something gets broken or stolen -- I am screwed.

Does the Sony RX-100 take photos quickly when not on the burst setting? I have a really nice Sony Cybershot that takes great pics when you can get it to stop auto focusing and take the picture. I need to get a new camera before our trip in 25 days but do not know which camera to buy.

Sorry to hijack your thread!

Okay so I think DSLR is a not for the parks and I'm going to invest in a much better smaller camera. The one I have at the moment is dying slowly and it was okay this weekend but I missed so many great photo opportunity while it messed around.

Camera

Nikons work great in my opinion. Invest in one with with at least 10x focus. It is worth it.

I take my slr camera with me to WDW. I find I take things more slowly and see things in more detail when I have it. Always looking for that perfect shot.

I like taking my dslr to the parks. You could pack a small camera if you know a day you won't want to carry it. I got a smaller backpack to carry it in, really easy to slip in when I am getting on a ride. If I get tired, I make my husband carry it!

I hated lugging my DSLR into the parks last year.

I am looking into buying the Canon SX160 for our upcoming trip. It also takes 720p video.

I purchased and returned 3 before settling on the Sony DSC-HX10v. It has a 16x zoom, fast shutter time, and takes really nice pics and video. I got it at Costco, a package deal with a case and memory card, for 199. The camera gets great reviews, for what it's worth.

I'll be taking mine with us as I want the best shots and photos for my family to enjoy for years to come. I remember my father telling me as a kid when he brought his 35 mm SLR that it was a Pain in the youknow what but the end result with the pictures he got developed made it so worth it. I'm gonna look into a back pack for this as I think it would be much easier rather than bringing my camera case that I use for my shoots.

We pack both a DSLR and a P&S. We shoot with a Nikon D80 for most occasions, because it's fast start up and we can quickly manipulate our settings for the best shot. The exceptions are low light, where we'll switch to the Sony TX10, or if there is any chance of the camera getting wet (TX10 is waterproof), or if we want multiple angles of the same shot (Ie DW will walk to the side to get a profile shot, while I shoot the same subject head-on).

I love my Case Logic Sling. I can take two lenses, a battery pack and has a holder if you want to take a tripod.
