On Vacation with an Olympus Tracker Digital Camera

A good way to annoy your family on a family vacation is take along a lot of photo gear.  If everyone in the family is not a photographer, you’re going to be “unpopular”. Vacations mean carrying a lot of stuff around with you to begin with, and going to places that may be a bit camera hostile – beaches, oceans, lakes, mountains, hiking trails, boats, amusement parks, etc. You get the picture.
