sarahalex95 asked: Do you ever back pack? And if you do, do you know of anyone who brings their camera? I'm passionate about photography and want to capture the experience when I go, but I don't know if it will be a bad idea to take an expensive DSLR.
I hike with my camera all the time, but I’ve never gone backpacking if you mean trekking and camping with it. That being said I wouldn’t hesitate to bring my camera with me, especially if it was on a trip I felt was worth capturing. Cameras will break and get run down at some point. It might as well be while doing something worth capturing.
