Great camera, but no good dedicated lenses
I think the NEX-7 is the best of the csc cameras, but I ended up getting the Panasonic G3. Two problems I had with the Sony were the price - over 2.5 times more expensive, and no dedicated lenses I...

Fleece + windshirt
Thanks for the Skurka update! Fleece + windshirt is indeed great in the Autumn & Winter. I must admit the shirt stays at home for multi-day trips to save weight (too much redundance together w...

Fleece believer
First of all, I am lightweight rather than ultralight. I use 2x100-weight fleece for 3 seasons and 100+200 for 4 seasons, the latter offering 3 different levels of insulation. I normally only wear ...

One suggestion
Canon A710IS (7MP, decent 35-210mm for the size, full manual mode, stabilizer, 7.3oz/210g + 2AA batteries). Gets quite good critique and I am quite happy with mine. http://www.imaging-resource.c...

Why not a digicam with exchangable lens?

Good idea!
Would be happy to add pictures and words from Scotland & Wales, hopefully soon Lappland and maybe the Faeroe Islands with time! Format and some sort of map (or map sketches) would indeed be good.

Rab Carrington Quantum Elite Top Bag
