Re: Travel, DSLR, Mirrorless, Weight and Cost = Conundrum.

In praise of crappy hardware. . .

A real eye-opener for me. . . I value Ming's perspective when it comes to photo gear as he is the antithesis of your typical photo gearhead.  His images are proof that it's the photographer behind the viewfinder that really matters.

Total cost for the camera/kit lens: around $300 via eBay.

This option is a step-up for not much more money:

Review: The Nikon D5500 (or, a solution to the compact 50-e problem)

My basic travel kit is a D200 with 2 zooms (DX/FX) covering 12-70mm (18-105mm FX equivalent) with a flash. Everything fits in a small fanny pack.  Small, light and inexpensive.  And if something should happen to my gear it isn't the end of the world.

Happy Trails to you. . .
