Cameras

Just want to know how many of you take along a camera on your rides. We have made it a point to carry one with us each time we go out. We just bought a tri-pod that will fit in our panniers so now we have no excuse for not taking pictures at any pretty spot. Would love for everyone to post a picture so we all know what the rest of the country looks like and see who has the prettiest riding area.

The newer, smaller, more durable digital cameras are the weapon of choice for most of the folks whom we ride with who are inclined to photo-document.

The Sony PC-10 is very popular, along with it's forerunner, as are the Canon Elph models.

We almost always take a compact Olympus 35mm camera along when we head out on trips; however, we usually forget to take it out. I have a Toshiba digital at home but it's one of the earlier 3.0 mega pixel models that can quickly become a $700 paperweight if subjected to sharp impacts or moisture.

About the only time we've really made a point of taking lots of photographs was on our California Coast trip back in '02. A few of them are on the Web at this URL:

We usually don't take a camera on day trips, but when travelling a true SLR with appropriate lenses and tripod is an essential part of out equipment!

Cheers,

Although I'm not a tandem rider, I do take along my Minolta DiMage X (new models include the Xi, Xt, and Xg) which is small, compact with a non-protruding optical zoom and lightweight enough to be used single-handed while on the move. Another camera that seems very nice but at twice the price of my DiMage is the new Sony DSC-T1 which also contains the same compact features. The Xg is a 3.2MP camera and the DSC-T1 is a 5.0MP camera. Both use all-metal bodies, have a 3x optical zoom (DiMage: 37mm-111mm@35mm, DSC-T1: 38mm-114mm@35mm) along with 4x digital zoom, have sub-second startup times (the DiMage Xg is a bit faster than the Sony) and are about the size of a deck of cards. The DiMage Xg runs about US$275 and the DSC-T1 is around US$550.
