Rather than ICL equipment (which I also own), my take-anywhere gear is an Olympus TG-6 Tough camera. Handheld or in my pocket, it is very accessible, versatile, and fun to use. Many presets or scene-specific modes are available, plus two customizable buttons, allow a huge gamut of choices.

I have the C1 and C2 buttons for sports capture (fast moving subjects) and macro (closeup of flowers or insects), respectively. If I want to capture a sequence (a few fps), I just hold the button down in anticipation of movement.

TG-6 is waterproof, dust-proof, and drop-proof (specific limitations). I carry extra batteries just in case. It takes an SD card, such as a 256 Gb that I use, so one never runs out of "film." Camera shoots in jpeg &/or RAW.

Thanks for viewing my inaugural post. Simplicity for camera gear is important by allowing me to use my Olympus TG-6 at a moment's notice since it is in hand or pocket most of the time whenever I am away from home. It's easy to be an amateur photojournalist.
