So in mid April I'm leaving to go backpack around south east asia for three - four months and I always planned on bringing my DSLR, but lately I've been having some second thoughts. Will my big camera be a hamper in my travels? Am I risking too much getting my $3000 setup stolen? Is it worth risking it? I have a Canon 60D with Tamron 17-50 2.8, canon 50 mm 1.4, and tokina 11-16. I'm thinking that its a bad idea to bring it for obvious reasons, and as much as I want to have that equipment with me, I know that I'd be able to get damn good pictures out of a high quality point and shoot. So now, what are some of the optimum point and shoots out there for someone who's used to a SLR? I want something good, I figure it'll be nice to have a back up high quality point and shoot in the future, so I'm not afraid of spending money.
