I can tell you what I will be doing differently next time I travel - carry a digital point and shoot camera instead of my Pentax MZ60. While traveling through 9 cities and 3 countries in three weeks, I found that my manual SLR camera is bulky and with the extra lenses more prone to scratches while changing them, but also the cost of having over 40 rolls of film to be processed. While taking a hot dusty train trip from Prague to Vienna in May 2006, I was cleaning my camera but accidentaly scratched the inside of my camera lens. Didn't notice how bad it was until I got my film processed. With a point and shoot, it will be more compact, no interchangable lenses. And, going digital, I will be able to see automatically if I got the perfect shot. I have my eye on the Panasonic Lumix FZ50, which I am hoping will go on sale next month.

So far I have found the guide useful. I think someone should edit the first post and put the link to the Guide though. It took some searching.

For sure I am not going to read each answer to your question over 5 pages.
Simply I would like to know what kind of help do you need?

I have a grand idea - look at the Travellerspoint Photoguide and pick something. Wow, how easy is that!?!

I know this thread hasn't been active for a while, but I thought I would chime in and let everyone know that I've linked up to the photoguide from the Tools page. Although there hasn't been a post in a while and some of the images don't work, the information there can be incredibly useful to those less comfortable with the art (read:me)

It's partly my fault, but I find the guide quite difficult to navigate. Also, I think some editing of the articles might be in order. I think they can be better written.

There's an improvement coming to navigation in the blogs in the next few days, based on feedback from others. I think that might improve navigation somewhat. What might also help is using a different/custom design for the blog to give it a wider area for the text and images, with also maybe a smaller font. There's one that is a good deal wider for most using a bigger screensize and that is the Postcard template. But I'm also planning a few blog posts on blog.travellerspoint.com about updating one's own design and I could create something as part of that series that could straightaway be used for this one. What do you think? If so, I'll need to keep in mind for my design :)

This all sounds excellent! Would you be able to send me some screen shots ? ;)

The original concept for this was some sort of "book" maybe similar to Wikipedia. We're not quite there yet. There's some really good stuff there already. We just need to take it to the next level I think.
