    Hi,

    I've got a Sony DSC T1 which I love, but I bought it for mainly for nights out cos its so small. I'm going on a 6 month trip to Asia, Austrailia, New Zealand, Fiji and North America and want something that'll take higher quality photos.

    As much as I love my camera, there's no comparison in quality to my mum's 35mm EOS500 and as I'm going to places I might never go to again I want something that will capture the moment with greater clarity and depth of colour than my current camera will.

    I don't want to go down the DSLR road as I can't afford the additional costs of lenses so thought that a "creative compact" would be more suitable, not only as its cheaper, but because there's less things to carry while I'm travelling.

    Sorry for the huge first post!

    Any help is much appreciaited,

    Mark

    Thanks for the replys, but I think the newbie's got the terms mixed up :oops: I was thinking about something like the Fuji S7000

    Something a bit more advanced than a point and shoot, but not as expensive as a DSLR

    Sorry for the mix up!
