I plan to attempt a south tonorth thru hike of the AT starting late next march. I would like to be able to take photos along the way..hence need for a camera.
I would want something that is light as possible (under a pound) easy to use, durable and reliable. I am thinking digitial. I have no experience with digital photography but with film cameras one can be sure to run out of film at the worst time (Muphy's law). Can one carry enough of those memory chips to last a whole hike?
While I want something inexpensive (if only!) and simple (ie a point and shoot type) ..I amnot interested in some el cheapo camera.
Any suggestions on camera type/models to look at? How much would I have to spend?
also...should I go with a digital camera or do you think film is better?
I am by no means pro and don't want to fuss with all the techie stuff.. just want good memories in pictures!!
