Is it safe to carry around a digital SLR throughout Jordan and Egypt? I have booked The Jordan and Egypt Adventurer and was wondering if the camera will bring too much negative attention (will people try stealing it?), if the activities are arduous enough that carrying the big SLR will be a pain in the arse, and if it might get damaged during the tour.
I have a small compact digital camera, but the SLR is the better of the two. Can someone please offer some advice regarding this.
Also, are there border laws prohibiting cameras and what about various temples and tourist attractions? Do some of these forbid camera use?
