I don't know too much about high end cameras, but my girlfriend has the Olympus TG-1 from their "Tough" range, and it's the perfect holiday camera as far as I am concerned.

Takes great photos and is everything-proof.

AFAIK, in a lower price range you can get the "rugged" features, but they take pretty crap photos. This one was/is the best of both worlds. You also don't pay as much for the Olympus brand name as you would for a Sony...

I think the TG-2 is the 2013 version.

PS if you have time to wait, grey market/online is going to serve you a lot better than JB Hifi etc, e.g. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/910174-REG/olympus_v104120bu000_tg_2_digital_camera_black.html

Thanks - but my price point is well under $200.

I'm a small timer.

Used Canon PowerShot S90 from ebay. Freakishly good compact camera from a few years back (check out a few reviews). Easily had for under $200.

True but it hasn't got a fixed lens. If you weren't too fussed about that part, fxh, then I would recommend this as well.

If you want a reasonable fixed lens point and shoot camera, you might think about a Nokia phone.  I don't think there is a fixed lens compact as good as the Pureview 808 in that price range, although it wasn't released in Australia.  The Lumia 920's camera is not comparable to it.  The older N8 is better than the Lumia, and could be had for ~$250.  

 

You could wait for Nokia's EOS phone on Windows 8, with the ultra high res sensor and optical stabilisation.  But you'll wait (like me) until the send of the year.

Watched the film Side Effects today. Enjoyed it.

Also wore one of my six or seven "winter" jackets/coats with the change in Melbourne weather < I put this in here to be remotely SF-relevant, but really it's all about the Soderbergh film for me...

Finally ordered my first pair of Carminas, direct from their website (910 whole cut, Rain last, black). Can anyone comment as to how long delivery to Australia usually takes?
post #28255 of 55224

When I ordered, it took about two weeks.

post #28256 of 55224
Thanks Gerry! I shall mark my calendar...

If only I knew how the Inca last fits my feet, I'd be the proud owner of Carmina. Despite all the information online, there are more misses than hits to be had when buying online without trying on first.
post #28258 of 55224
FWIW, does anyone else have the 910? I've tried it in brown and it looked great, but I really wanted a black pair...

How are the other Melbourne SF members going with the change in weather? Perhaps a catch up is in order soon?

As for the weather, I know I'll be pulling out the flannels very soon.

In some ways, dressing casually for the rain is a lot more difficult than dressing formally for the rain.

There's a lot of times (last night being one) that I really didn't want to have to lug an (expensive) umbrella around with me all night, and many of my jackets and coats don't have hoods.

I have this Gant Rugger slicker in navy, which works well as a top layer since it's very light and packable, but unfortunately I realised last night while walking out the door at 7.45 that I'd lent it to my girlfriend shog[1].gif
