Honestly, I think taking a DSLR around for travel is well worth it even if you only have one lens. The quality of pictures is just so much better than what a P&S delivers, regardless if it's top of the line. I'm going to bring my DSLR with me for foreign travel next month, and thus far I've taken DSLRs with me to random out of state travel -- quite happy with the results. I know I'd be unhappy with the photos if I just used a P&S.

Do you have multiple lenses for your DSLR? If you only shoot with one lens, it might be easier to just take a nice PaS camera. What kind of pictures do you plan on taking?

Definitely take your D80. I took that AND a pointandshoot with video. My pictures are great. I carried an 18-200 lens and traveled through Italy and cruised the Eastern Mediterranean. It was also a great learning experience to try different shooting techniques in places. I also had my kids and I love the portraits that I got - often spontaneous ones. With the longer lens, you can zoom in without them knowing. With the other camera, my husband and I could trade off and I could capture some short video clips of things as well. That easily slips in a pocket so sometimes i was carrying both.

Karen that sounds pretty much like the way I usually travel and probably the way I'll do it in Europe. This is just the first time we will be traveling abroad and I was concerned with traveling light. What type of case did you use to carry your camera (backpack, etc)? I hate carrying it around my neck most of the day, but if I put it in my backpack it is not as easily accessible and I miss some great shots. What worked best for you?
