Having just come back from Rhodes Greece, I have no back aches and have not lost or damaged any camera equipment. Simply I took one Nikon P900 and left all my working gear at home. You may laugh, Its a cheap little camera, but if it gets damaged, so what,carrying heavy camera gear for pleasure makes me laugh. The camera is well capable of geting acceptable images, and some images no other camera lens could get! Having that reach of up to 2000mm optically was crazy but got shots the naked eye could not see. And the weight 33 ounces After all I was on holiday and photography was not my main object, I do that at home 7 days a week LOL.
