1. magnesium fire starter, 2. sturdy garbage bag, 3. fishing line and 4. hook, 5. water purification tablets, Air Force signaling mirror, 6. Leatherman tool (in checked baggage in case I fly), 7. Spectra cord, 8. duct tape, 9. compass, 10. Ruger LCP (not if I fly). Some of this stuff would work in the city too.

gsum: I wish I had a pound for the number of colleagues who have said that they would love to get back into photography but hate modern digital cameras.

If only a camera manufacturer had the courage to produce a dSLR with the feature set of a classic OM2SP. No scene selection, no face recognition, no art filters, not even a rear screen display. The result would be a fast, easy to use, compact camera that would fit into an ever-ready case. The E-M5 looks the part but fails to live up to expectations.

There are plenty of feature rich cameras out there. Surely there is room for a dSLR with a minimal feature set?

I have the daily courage to ignore all that stuff. It's the same four steps: aperture, shutter speed, composition and focus. I've done this for 45 years.

wutsurstyle: You don't get optical stabilization on budget cameras that often. Creating a wide angle lens at 26mm with 5x zoom isn't particularly cheap either. Running AA batteries is a cost saving measure, some people like it, some dont. Look at the old Canon a590IS, a widely popular small camera that also runs on AA. The difference though, is that that camera features PASM modes for the budget enthusiast. This one is more for the budget traveler.

These were the LZ8 and LZ10. I still have the LZ8 and use it a lot. It beats my cell phone camera and I use the manual exposure all the time for panoramas and stitching and HDR effects. I was thinking of it as the ideal 2 week hiking camera because I could get a solar AA charger and a large SDHC card or cards.I would appreciate the wide angle though.
