It was a bit of a tight race between pocket cameras and digital SLR cameras, but more ZDNet readers (48%) voted that they need their DSLRs when traveling. 296 readers voted in the poll, but it should be noted that more than one option could have been selected. Camcorders proved less necessary with 3% each for both mini and standard HD camcorders. Write-in votes came in for mainly accessories like extra batteries, tripods and waterproof camera bags. For special trips where I want top-quality photos, I am always willing to carry around my DSLR. But I have to agree with reader ryoung that its good to carry a point-and-shoot camera around for crowded areas, especially when it is not safe it have such an obviously expensive gadget in plain view. But I also like the pocket cameras with video capability in case I ever want to record something in a pinch, without carrying multiple devices around.

Do you agree with the results?
