My husband and I love going down to the beach and everywhere with our cameras. He shoots with the Nikon 7000 with a 70-200mm f/2.8G lens. And I shoot with either my Nikon 800 with the 50mm, 85mm, 105mm, or lens baby.......depending on how much I want to weigh myself down. Yes, that's a lot of gear but we like to experiment. It's a hobby of ours to "collect" memories. Other times, I'll just carry around my Nikon P7800 and a GoPro Hero5 Black, mounted on top. And other times, when I really want to go very light, my trusty iPhone 6s is always by me. Whatever we carry with us, being able to get a shot is key. Unfortunately, Mac, our chihuahua (the little guy in my avatar) has learned to hide when he sees me bring out the camera(s). LOL. Overall, like some have mentioned, "the best camera is the one you have with you." Now, getting the pictures home and doing something with it, is a whole different story. Hahaha.
