PowerShot Cameras / Re: Help on a pocketable compact

+1 on the waterproof/shock resistant. A camera that rides in a jeans pocket or jacket or purse all day will need to be somewhat rugged.

100% RAW on my 5D3. But on my carry-in-the-purse-just-in-case camera, a FujiX10, jpgs. Yes, I know it will do RAW, but for some minor stuff, a good jpg is fine.

The issue with Trolls, in general, is that they have no real interest in sharing their [sometimes considerable] expertise, or in helping others with technical issues, or even in enjoying someone's witty comment. They are all about seizing any opportunity to aggressively demand personal attention and acknowledgement, regardless of the OP's questions or concerns.
I have seen so many members graciously take time to answer queries, and encourage others, and that is what makes this forum a treasure worth protecting.

Another vote for LensPen, especially for fingerprints. A nice thing about it is the incorporated brush; you can use it to make sure you're not rubbing grit around on your filter.

I started following canonrumors last March when I purchased my 5D3. The forum is a jewel; enormously helpful, thought-provoking, and entertaining.
The one dark spot has been when a useful, informative discussion here is hijacked by egomaniac trolls like Me-Me-Me-I-Am-The-Sole-Fount-Of-Experience-And-Wisdom-Mikael. People like him are an incurable poison in forums, and I applaud the moderators in banning his worthless a$$.

Very cool, TWI by Dustin Abbott. Like a Van Gogh.

If you don't shoot a a vast number of images on a trip, you might try stocking up on CF cards, shoot in RAW on the CF + jpg on the SD, and leave the RAWs on the extra cards till you get back.

5D3, Sigma 15mm with 10-stop ND gel, f/16, ISO 100, 13 sec.

I have the Yongnuo 568EX II and a pair of YN 622c's. They all play nicely with my 5D3. I use flash very frugally, so could not justify the investment in Canon hardware.

Lenses / Re: What lenses would you bring for this travel-trip?

The 24-105 + 16-35 would be great, but see if you can find a corner of your bag for the 15mm fisheye also. It's really small, but such a fun lens!

EOS-M / Re: Hoodman Loupe

It should fit against any 3" screen. Works fine on my 5D3, which has a 3.2".

I don't attach it, just have it hanging around my neck, and kinda set it against the screen in bright sunlight. Awkward, but beats shooting blind.

That should work with a touchscreen, but you may want to borrow one first.

Hobbyist. Changed to BB focus on my 5D3, instantly hooked. Very practical and intuitive way to focus. Went back and dug out my 40D and changed it, too.

Software & Accessories / Re: What size RAW should I shoot at?

+1 on full sized RAW, and investing in storage.

One way to take the sting out of it is to be more aggressive with culling your image files. It took me a long time to realize that I would never, ever utilize any of those garbage shots. [Unless they are of a UFO or Sasquatch, which are legally required to be of grotesque quality].

Use all the image quality your equipment can give you, then be realistic about what you keep.
