One of the biggest selling points for more professional cameras is their rigidity. Mag-alloy body vs. Plastics; better weather sealing, and all and all better constructions, but photographer Mike Quain from Arkansas shows that you can pull it off with an entry level Nikon D3300 and a cheap 35mm f/1.8 lens.
Mike (A.K.A The Nikon Kidd) did quite a bit of travel with the camera: A total mileage of 17,803 (9214 miles Hitchhiking, 5,500 miles by van, 1,900 miles by bus, 739 by freight trains and 450 by Amtrak) this camera has been around the block.
Mike did not start travelling with a 2 years photography project in mind, instead, he left his home town (Arkansas) after it was hit badly on the recession, and he was miserable with his night job of stocking shelves at the local Wallmart. The result is a facinating travel story documented on Mike’s Facebook page.
