There are some excellent photographs on the forum. Would like to know what type of cameras various members use to obtain these photos.

Hi dave ,
Indeed, Springbok has done a grand job with those pics of Isandlwana. Most good high resoultion digital compacts with a zoooming facility will give a good result too.
I use both ; ie. a compact, being a Pentax W30, but for the more technical landscape shots a DSLR Sony A390 with a 200mm Sigma zoom lense saves a lot of leg work becuase it extends the reach of the photographer. In addition the The A390 has two levels of internal digital maginification , ie x1.4 and x 2.
Unless in museums etc a flash will not be much used as there is normally plenty of light in these latitudes.
If thinking of doing the safari, remember to have provision for spare batteries, or charging of same, and extra /spare off camera digital storage. (sd cards etc)
