Some pictures from the 2012 season. I brought my 50D and EF-S 15-85 on all major trips this season, but found that I didn’t bothered to take it out of the backpack as much as I should have. When skiing with a group of people I don’t know very well I feel a resistance to stop and take out the camera and because I fell it will slow us down too much, but I think that’s mostly a feeling and I could probably have taken out the 50D much more than I did.
Instead I ended up taking quite a lot of photos with my W995 Sony Ericsson mobile which has a crappy camera and requires a lot of work in post-processing to end up with decent images. In order to address that I have bought Panasonic GF3 with a 14/2.5 lens which I plan to have in a chest pocket or similar for easier access. I have a new skiing trip coming up in a couple of days so I will see how that works out in practice 🙂
