When you say leave the big dog home & take a small camera, I'm assuming the big dog is a DSLR & a small camera is anything smaller. If you're a snap shooter, you take the small one but if you're serious about your images you take the equipment that will yield you the BEST images you can get based on the equipment you own. If you say your small camera is "GOOD ENOUGH" you're not serious about your images. You are simple accepting a compromise in image quality to be able to "travel light". Sometimes it must be done due to weight restrictions, but if you're doing it to travel light, you're not a serious photographer. Why do you think big name professional photographers travel with so much equipment if it could be done with compact camera gear?
