You have NO idea how drunk we get on this parade.....

If it means something to you to get great shots in this parade, it's a pretty simple matter. Be the big guy. Don't drink.
Take your 5D3 and get amazing images. Feel great the next day. No pain, no shame and no regrets.

You have NO idea how drunk we get on this parade.....(I"m IN the parade)...and I'd not want to risk falling down and breaking the camera, or somehow losing it....we have drinks all along the route, people give beers to you, and we stop IN bars along the route.

This is New Orleans....even pacing yourself, you get pretty trashed and I'd not wanna try that while carrying $5K of camera.

Not to mention, since I'm part of the walking (stumbling) parade, I'll be carrying all my beads and other throws in my neck and in packs on my shoulders, etc...so, I'm walking, drinking and throwing, and giving girls kisses along the route....

Not really the environment for $5K camera that you very well might get trashed enough to accidentally throw to the crowd...

Ahhhhh now i see....sorry! I didnt see the part about u being IN the parade! I would suggest since ur gonna be in the parade that u would obviously have to arrive early. Definitely take somebody with u to get a spot up close w ur gear. And i guess ur Iphone or whatever anybody else suggests....sorry & have fun!!!

I could suggest the durable and rugged Canon D20 but it might not be fast enough.  I've used it hiking mostly and it makes pretty good pics but not RAW.  It is durable and fairly easy to shoot with one hand.  You can't really hurt it, no matter how much beer and slobber you spill on it or if you drop it a few times.  It can be tethered to you fairly well so no one can run off with it.  It just looks like a regular P&S so maybe no one would want to try and steal it anyway.

You know, you could always just get an old Rebel and kit lens and treat it like a throwaway.  It would be pretty small and light.  Pop up flash too.  Then you would have RAW and fairly quick shooting and zooming.  Just a thought.

Let us know what you decide. 
Yes, but what would  surapon  say ??  :D

LOL...that's only for people living in NORMAL cities.

Here in New Orleans...such footage and photographs really seem to help boost your resume materials.

GoPros are great, and I love them... but they don't have much in the way of battery life. I even have the external battery pack, and don't get much more than an hour of use, no matter what the card size you're using.

GoPro, with battery backpack accessory for more battery life. Time lapse photography..... shoot a picture a second and make a movie out of it.... it should be "staggering".....

I just got one and am having a blast playing with it.... want to see my commute at 4000Kph?

Olympus TG1 or TG2. Fast lenses, and waterproof, shockproof, crushproof etc. That means drunk-proof :)
It can take pictures and video from inside your beerglass with beer in it! Only con is no RAW, but the pics usually look great anyways...

Spill beer on it? Not a prob. Drop it? No sweat.
Charge the batteries and have fun!
