AlbertinFrance,

The Kibble Palace is beautiful and a pleasure to go around. the other greenhouses have also been renovated, but not to the same standard, unfortunately.

I am after one camera due to the following: -

1/ When I travel I do all the types of photography I have listed. I travel with one carry on bag so need something light. A lot of places I travel to I will never get to visit again so want good quality photographs and video.

2/ When I travel there are often places where I may only charge up one item due to the fact that there is only one or two power sockets (if I am lucky) and power is only available a few hours a day.

3/ When going to an airshow, or for a hike I don't want to be carrying two camera systems.

4/ My wife is embarrassed when I go to events with a rucksack full of cameras and lenses. She likes it when I go with a small discrete bag. I don't get paid for my photography, but often get asked to take photos by friends, family and aquaintances.

5/ Living in Glasgow I need a robust weather resistant camera due to the continuous rain and the fact we very, very rarely get any sun.

EDITED TO ADD

You may be right about the lack of skills with a flash, but that comes around from the fact I don't like using one and now lack the practice at using one. I wasn't always this way about using a flash.
