What To Do, What To Do? Do I Dare Bring The GOOD Camera?

Oh man, I just can’t decide.  Which camera should I bring?  I’ve been researching the webz and read that you should leave valuables at home.  Actually the wording went something like:  Don’t take anything you would mind losing.  Don’t wear flashy jewelry, there goes my bling dangit.

But back to the Camera, yes a capital C camera the camera I have been lusting after since it’s release in February...the new DSLR the full frame lusciousness, the 36.1 megapixel that is 20.1 megapixels on medium setting wonderful goodness, the new Nikon D800.  I am totally in love with her already, and I’ve been thinking about naming her but so far haven’t come up with anything worthy and fitting.

Do I risk it?  Do I bring it along on a once in a lifetime cruise to the Mediterranean where I’ve read don’t bring anything you don’t want to lose... How can I risk it?  What if it rains while we are on offshore excursions?

I don’t want to carry it with me everywhere, but I will. I have done that before with the D300 and even once in Deadwood South Dakota I panicked because I couldn’t find it and guess where it was strapped: round my neck.  I’m such a doofus sometimes.

So do I bring it?  I have a really nice pocket camera, a Nikon Coolpix S8000.  It has it’s own very special Coach pouch-but then again, they tell you not to be a spectacle, to leave the good jewelry at home.  Do I dare carry my Coach accessories in my purse that  obviously is not?

And then the real truth is...My camera is my jewelry.  How can I leave it behind when I have the opportunity to devour the manual while we are at sea and learn all the intricacies of my new toy?

I will have opportunity to take macro art photos in places I’ve never been, maybe never will go again...I need it.  Don’t I?

What to do, what to do.  I’m more than willing to leave the diamonds at home, but the camera too?
