I know some people are just happy with the usual point and shoot camera... and for the weight and price, these are simply wonderful! Some might even tour without a camera, I did it myself on a couple of occasion.
However, I was wondering if some of you were into photography and were touring with biger cameras and tripods. I know that nowadays you can find very versatile cameras with fairly good lenses and even some with crazy zooms... they, of course, come with at a price. As for tripods, I find most of them bulky and heavy but they are certainly quite practical if you like photography. I remember seing some kind of clamp which can be use to mount a camera to almost anything (chair, handlebar, fence...). If I had an aero bar, I would probably use such a clamp to mount my camera on it once in a while (it would be a good way to make nice short movies too).
Anyone has some experience to share about touring photography? Not only equipment but techniques or ideas that worked well for you?
Last summer I realized that the best way to use my camera more often was simply to have it available at all time (e.g. in my handlebar bag)... I took more pictures and this in turns improve the likelyhood of geting nice pictures.
