Digital cameras! What should I do??

Travel Forums Asia Digital cameras! What should I do??

Digital cameras - are they worth taking along on a trip to SE Asia? I'd love to get some really great photos, but are worried that I won't be able to:

1) Charge it up - plug sockets?(as it doesn't take batteries)
2) Transfer photos from camera to a computer (or a disc?)
3) How safe is it? Don't want to loose it either!

I'll be travelling around Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia and hopefully Nepal and Tibet.

Let me know about your experience please! Good or bad!!

hello there,

i brought my camara on my trip trough russia china, hong kong, thailand and dubai and have to say GREAT!
If you bring a world adaptor you can charge it anywhere you want. there are shops everywhere to put pictures on a CD and they do it for you (you have to bring the cable). This is handy just in case the camara does get stolen.
It just to handy to delete pictures strayed away and see if the turned out right and you can send them to your friends aswell!!!

good luck with your trip

Hey Jessiegirl, I have seen heaps in these forums about this topic - and what I decided for my trip is that I will copy them onto discs and send them home. But there is an actual forum on photography and that will give you heaps of tips and ideas.

But most of all - you have to take your camera!!!!!!!! You can't not take it!! I think digital cameras are so cool co zyou don't waste film taking a few pics just to get THE pic!
