Kilimanjaro Footage: Canon vs GoPro

I have been designated as the official chronicler for our Kilimanjaro trek, and was all set to take my Canon t4i Rebel, the best camera I have. However, I was told it will get wet and freeze and it could become heavy as I carry it up Africa’s tallest mountain.

Furthermore, a “friend” pointed out that I am not the National Geographic so it may be a great camera, but I haven’t won any photography awards lately. He recommended I should go for the unbreakable GoPro type and instead aim to use my storytelling skills with insight and humor. I’m not quite sure what to do about audio with the GoPro, and I’m not wearing a helmet!

So, what say you? I created a poll so you can vote and add comments.
