The Canon Powershot G15 - A Great Travel Companion

The wife and I went to the West Coast for a week. She was to attend a seminar/workshop and I decided to tag along. Initially, I set up my gear as follows: a Canon 7D, a Canon 24-105 f/4L IS USM lens, a Canon 70-200 f/4L IS USM lens, a Canon 430 EX-II speedlite, and a Canon Powershot G15. My reasoning? I will use the G15 for my daily walk on San Francisco and Berkeley and I will use the 7D for more "serious" photography.

But, at the last minute, I decided to just bring the G15 since I won't be doing any "business" photography anyway - this trip, for me, is purely leisure, so I decided that the G15 would be enough. However, I felt that I still needed the 7D for those just-in-case moments, whatever they may be...

So, what really happened? It turned out I didn't need the DSLR. Whether it was to shoot flowers, street photography, even for portraiture. The Canon Powershot G15 is a perfect travel companion.

For those times that I needed a more powerful flash, I just used the Canon 430 EX-II that I brought with me. The only wrinkle here: this speedlite is so big compared to the powershot! The G15-EX-II set-up is actually very unwieldy. I guess the designers at Canon were correct in assuming that the 430 EX-II was not meant for the G-series cameras. I guess if I wanted a more perfect set up, I would be better off with the speedlite that was designed for it.

So, if you are looking for a perfect camera for your next travel adventure, I highly recommend the Canon Powershot G15!

So get yours here!
