Pentecost Island Problem
I love my little Canon 300HS, I probably love it too much. I decided to treat myself and bought the 300HS back in Chicago earlier this year.
I bought it because while I absolutely cherish my Canon 30D, let’s face it. It’s a royal pain to lug around a DSLR all day long.
Which is what I normally do.
I also wanted a nice little camera that can shoot video in Full HD, to help further document my travels.
After a bit of research and an awesome sale – I opted for the Canon 300HS.
It’s small, compact, sleek and takes amazing photos and video – for what it is.
And I love it!
The Problem is This
Now I take it everywhere – which is what I intended it’s use for.
However, I leave the 30D either back at camp or in my camera bag. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I don’t have nearly as many photos that I would have like to have taken while in Vanuatu as I should have.
Now, it’s not like I took only a handful of photos either – I took over 800 photos on the 30D but it’s not enough and there are a number of photos that I took with the 300HS that I should have took with the 30D.
There is some trade off though. A lot of photos that I took with the 300HS, I would not have taken because it was a spur of the moment, once in a life time thing.
Like the photo pictured above.
In this situation, I would not have had the 30D anyways – unless I had planned on a sunset shoot.
Which I was not.
You take the good with the bad. I’m still really happy with the photos that I took with the 300HS. As I mentioned there are several photos that I wouldn’t of took anyway because I wouldn’t of had the 30D.
Just like anything in life, there is always a sacrifice.
