Am travelling across Europe on my motorcycle and want to buy a decent SLR camera. I am not a huge enthusiast so nothing too fancy but I am going to be going through some amazing scenery and want something to capture it with a wide angled lens. I am thinking of the D40 with the best lens you can get. Can anyone help me out? I'm looking to spend under £300 but can go just over if it's going to make a huge difference. Also I obviously don't want anything too big.
Cheers for any help
a dslr is big have you concidered a high end compact canon s90 sony hx5 they will be easier to travel with
I too am wondering about a travel camera.
While i have my beloved G10 I am off to Spitzbergen in February for a wedding. Obviously light levels will be very low for the landscapes. The G10 is great but not that good in low light. Since I am only going to get this chance with the Northern Lights I am looking to get a compact DSLR and am looking at the micro4/3 systems. Money is tight after buying tickets to the North Pole so I am looking at the Panasonic G1 or the Samsung NX10. Any views?
I always think you'll be better getting a compact DSLR rather than a micro 4/3 camera. The Canon 1000D is a great DSLR and offers a wider range of accessories including lenses.
