For our trip I decided to buy an iPad and a small digital camera. We’re going to be away for six weeks and the thought of hauling around my 17&8243; Mac Book Pro and six or seven pounds of camera gear is not that appealing.

I have a bunch of Apple gear, so the iPad was a no brainer. I’ve had it for a few weeks now and am very happy with it should be great device for traveling.

The camera required a bit more research. I was leaning towards a Cannon G12 but opted for a Panasonic Lumix. Very tiny form factor and it takes really nice photos. Here’s are a couple taken close to home.

I’m also trying Blogsy, an iPad application for writing blog posts (like this one ;-))
