Hi guys,

I will go to Rio, Brazil, in 5 days to shoot a short documentary about the relationship between Congolese-Brazilian music. I need your advice. Should I take my T2i for Slow mo or my 5d mark 2? A friend of mine told me the streets (I will mostly shoot outdoors) are unsafe.

I want to take my 5D2 but I'd rather lose a $800 T2i than a $2700 DSLR.
Any advice on that issue or on the extra gear I should take with me? (i.e: monopod vs tripod vs slider)
