    A friend went to visit his brother for a month abroad, travelled light, one airplane cabin suitcase, one laptop, no camera (he owns an entrance DSLR with a 18-55mm VR lens, if I remember correctly- have seen it only once). The reason he didn't take it, despite they will have their mom joining them, from a different country, as well, was mainly bulk. (he could get hold of another DSLR there from a friend, hopefully). But I thought , isn't it pity to have spent that amount of money and not being able to travel with it because of bulk? I kept thinking that a decent half-frame film camera of the past would be perfect for his job. (76 exposures x 2 rolls=152 shots I don't think he will come back with more, he's been there before) In case you had to choose between no camera and a half frame film what would you do?

    I can't see him investing in one after buying the DSLR, he has spent money on extra telephoto lenses. I think, bulkwise, the bridge cameras are great for travel.

    It is for that sort of reason I have an S95 compact. Just busy stitching some hand held night panoramas together, it works far better than I expected.bund-evening-edited-1.jpg
    Not bad for a camera the size of a fag packet, not that anyone every carrys such a thing theses days Smile

    There are plenty of compacts and sub compacts(pocket Sized) available.

    My x10 sees more use than my CSC`s.

    I had considered a Canon S90 at an airport duty free when they had come out. But on that trip, I ended up using a stored and less frequently used Zenit E when I arrived to my destination. It was a visit back home, so no new locations to see. At a journey to the Far East I was kindly offered to use an original Olympus Pen. I tried to shoot paired photographs cause I thought that each print would contain two pictures. Lost the count with the paired photos and thankfully each print, being digitally produced, contained just one photo.
