Hey all

Im going on The Big Chill camping tour on june 28th and then to live somewhere in the UK. I'm wondering if I should invest in a good qaulity camera? At the mo I've got a fairly basic Sony Cyber Shot W110 which does the job, it's got 7.2 mega pixels and 4x zoom. Is that all good for a massive trip that i'm planning?? any camera people out there who could help me out??

cheers bryn

    yes.. this is the time to invest in a good quality camera.. you dont want to get stuck with a a few good photos and your tourmates have amazing ones.

    that being said the panasonic lumix tz10 is really good. has 15x optical zoom and 14megapixels. its verry easy to use and they are going on ebay for $300somthing insted of 500+ in the store.
    there is also a canon one but i forgot what model it is.

    The Canon is the Powershot SX210. It has the advantage over the Lumix of being able to manually change settings as well as the fully automated settings. This is the one I have and I love it to bits!

    I’ve got the Canon Powershot SX210 too after seeing my mates amazing photos from Splendour in the Grass. The zoom is fantastic and it’s a great camera to have :)
