I have no problem with my camera outside, but I bought the S95 specifically for my roadfood and BPT sandwich pursuit activities. However, I am off today for Rome, Italy and a Med cruise to the Egyptian pyramids, Istanbul, Greek isles, Athens and Naples. The only camera I am taking along is the Canon S95. I’m leaving my Olympus E520 DSLR at home. Maybe the only food shot I will get will be that pizza I seek out in Naples. I’m also interested in packing light and keeping my camera secure in an inside pocket of my Scottevest. I’m more cautious now after getting mugged by a street gang at a festival in Bolivia 5 years ago and losing my wallet, money, ID and credit cards.
