Camera Advice - Pre Holiday
I'm off to drive around Iceland in a month or so (hopefully, once we've nailed the itinerary) and I don't want to waste the opportunity for fantastic photography.
I have a number of camera's all of which are constrained in some way and recently I've taken to just using my iPhone 5s for its speed, ease of use and excellent overall balance in all kinds of conditions.
I want to take a camera that will be easy to use and give faithful landscape shots but that can also handle bright skys and dark foreboding landscapes without swinging wildly between over and under exposure.
I have a Nikon S9100 travel camera which has fantastic zoom and 'can' take great photos but can also be quite hit and miss. I also have a Fuji S9500 bridge camera that my dad gave me when he last upgraded which I think on the surface might be the best choice but is quite big and unweildy. Finally I have another dadmedown Fuji S3500 bridge camera which sits somewhere between the bigger Fuji and the pocket snapper Nikon.
All three cameras are getting on a bit now and I haven't kept up with technology so it might be time to trade up.
So to those Alfisti with their finger on the pulse... which would you take, or would you bin the lot in favour of something new, and if the latter what would you suggest?
