I have carried various cameras, all of which have been quite heavy. Now its a very nice and small Olympus with small zoom lense but with camera, soft case, extra lithium batteries, at least 2-3 rolls of film, the weight becomes 1.30 pounds. It is obvious that technology is quickly making film cameras disappear, just as electronic calculators did to the slide rule and I keep lusting after one of the small digital ones that are so small and so light and take so many digital fotos.
But there are so darn many of them that its difficult to decide. I have gone to the one website I know, probably good but very cumbersome and full of info on so many of them....So, from someone's backpacking perspective, which I want find on that site, which would be a better choice- in your opinion?
