Packing for a family vacation


After a year waiting to go on vacation, the time has come. I have everything pretty much packed for my family and myself. Until I was presented what camera are you going to take with you out of the country. My first impulse was to take my fairly new Nikon D610, then the thought of something happening to it got me second guessing my first choice. The next choice was to take my smaller, not so advanced camera, the Nikon D3200. The more I thought about it, I was presented with dilemma of not being able to do much with my DSLR, like take in the water to capture my kids enjoying the beach. Then a possible solution, look for a point-and-shoot camera that can shoot in RAW. I thought, easy. Well not so much due to my time running, shopping online would be limited. So the search began. My first thought was to stick to Nikon because that is my preferred brand. As I started to look around, I didn’t find what I wanted or it was out of my budget. The more I looked the more I felt I was not going to be able to find what I was looking for, disappointment started to set in. And just then, I found a YouTube video comparing two camera, a Nikon waterproof (I can’t remember what model) and Olympus Tough Stylus T-4. When I was watching the video the question “does it have the capability to shoot in RAW?” came and the answer was “yes”. The excitement ran through me. The first thing I did was look it up on (Prime is awesome), and I found it within my budget and with 2-day shipping.

Now the next thing to do, test on my family trip to Cancun. I will post a follow-up with my review on the camera. Stay posted.
