Re: What are your experiences with V1 or V2 as a main travel cam?

The V1 has been my main travel camera for two years now - mainly urban environment.
Works fine for me.

When I go lightweight, it’s only with the 10-30mm and the SB-N5.
When the main purpose of a day trip is taking pictures, it’s two V1s with three or four lenses in the bag. It’s still lightweight and small compared to DSLR equipment.

Actually I get more shots and keepers with this set up than with a DSLR.
Much more discreet. You draw less attention to yourself.
Less need to change lenses when you can use two bodies.

Another advantage is, that you can use a mini tripod to stabilize the camera. I haven’t found a tripod for a DSLR yet, that you just can throw in the bag.
