Trips are only time I get to play with my cameras so yes I still take them, some times too many if I am driving.

I haven't really researched cameras since my T2i. When you say, they have "built in" HDR, do you mean you take the pic, and it automatically takes mutliple pics with different exposures and its ready as a jpg. In other words, you don't have to think about it...it just does it for you?
Or do you have to take multiple pics and then do some HDR editing later, post processing?

I agree, there's no comparison when it comes to being able to manually adjust focus and other settings. You can take cool photos that most phones just can't.

They do in camera HDR like the phones do. I haven't seen a DSLR in a long time that doesn't. My first one had that option and it was an early one. I'm surprised the T2i didn't have it in some form.

That's awesome. I can only imagine how good HDR in dslrs is. I wish the T2i would have had that. Its a great feature to have when you want the people and background to be lit well at night\lowlight.

T2i is very old what you can find in modern dSLR or mirrorless cameras.

If weight is concern look at micro four third as well.

wish I could afford a new camera right now, much less lenses.

The mirrorless ones look really nice. And great for video, which is what I love to shoot.

I always carry a DSLR. Right now I have a T3i. Want to upgrade, but Canon has not brought 4K to their DSLRs yet.

I have upgraded my setup to have a GoPro Hero5 Session mounted on top and a 18mm-200mm lens to handle a wider range. That makes it heavier. I find that it rides better on my sling strap.

Unless I'm trying for far away picks. Like safari. And need telephoto. Phones really are the only one I use. And frankly anfter 20 trips. I don't really take too many photos anymore. Maybe new things but generally I take a photo and really never look at it again.

I just bought the A6500 and LOVE it! The pictures are so vibrant and I love taking photos in AK with the new lens I bought for it. I can see the animals right up close with great detail.

Phone cameras are getting better, and for many situations in excellent lighting, I'm good with my phone. However, I still appreciate the ability to use different focal lengths, blur background (the software version just doesn't cut it for true background blur), and have better low-light performance, a mirrorless or dSLR will always make a better image all things being equal.

That said, the T2i is an older camera, so modern phones will certainly catch up with its sensor.

Which lens are you using at AK?
