Re: SX40 or G1X for Travel?

I can only tell you what I DiD (excuse me, my lower case D has gone AWOL). I went on a Danube cruise for 8 Days three years ago. RuleD out film, too much hassle. RuleD out my Nikon D300, to big anD heavy. Chose my Canon A650IS. UseD lithium AA batteries. WorkeD fine. There were only a few times when I wisheD I haD a lens wiDer than 35mm, no times when I wanteD something longer than 210mm.

The A650 was easy to carry in a belt loop case in a jacket pocket. The SX40 I now have woulD have been fine, but it is not close to a pocket camera. This photo was taken through a tour bus winDow. OOPs, the first photo was taken from an auto in Seattle. The ferris wheel is the prater in Vienna.
