About the single-use cameras... They seem to take excellent pictures.
My dad is a professional photographer and was a bit chagrined at the
quality of photos taken by my mother with one of those on a recent trip
they took to the carribean! (She helps him pose people in their
business, but isn't a photo-gear head like him!) I think the
water-proof version would be a logical choice for the trail, but I'm not
sure how durable they are. Maybe someone else 'round here knows how
much abuse they'll take?
Also, I have to agree with you. This list is the best thing, I've found
on the net! People are friendly and helpful -- very refreshing from all
the noise elsewhere. I think all the new folks, me included, should do
our best to keep it this way.
