Travelling with a Camera now is almost compulsory.
Taking Photo's has become cheaper and we're not restricted to special events.
But some folks like to have a different Camera for each occasion.
My choices are:
I'm off to the beach. Sand , salt water and high temperatures.
I find the Fuji XP Cameras are everything proof for the beach.
Drop in the sand OK. Drop in the Sea OK.
Good for family photo's - Video underwater with the Fish.
Not amazing quality but excellent for "Fun Days"
Next Camera is for the shirt pocket and a day out.
The Casio EX-H15 takes excellent quality pix.
Mixes the sunlit and shaded areas well for brilliant photo's.
Something I've always found to be a problem with digital.
It has a large 3inch screen - so I don't need my reading glasses.
And the battery is good for 1,000 shots !!
So you can get really "Snap Happy"
My last choice is when I want to take quality photo's of Architecture and scenery. Sports and Zoom into far away events.
The (Panasonic) Lumix FZ48.
I read all the reviews on line and no one could find fault with it.
And neither can I. Perfect results again and again.
3 inch Screen or through the Viewfinder.
Leica lens is a permanent fixture.
Manual or Auto. Very good quality HD Video.
Just a bit too bulky for the shirt pocket !
