Moving overseas and need camera advice
My wife and I have been selected for the Peace Corps and will be moving overseas early 2013. We have an older Fuji (6MP) digital camera. I was thinking about updating my camera before we leave.
Things I would like:
-great photos AND video
-possibly waterproof (not sure where we will be yet and what conditions we'll see)
-Compact (no giant DLSRs)
In looking online it seems like the Olympus TG-1 might fit the bill. Then I saw the video for the GoPro3 last night and almost pulled out my credit card.
I'd like to get some advice from avid users on what they suggest. I won't be jumping off cliffs or surfing like in the GoPro video, but I'm sure we will see some natural beauty we'll want to capture.
