Hi guys, I'm after a little advice regarding what camera I should purchase if you'd be so kind... First about me - I'm okay at pointing a camera, still have much to learn about the details of real photography though! I own a tired old Lumix dmc tz1 point and shoot which does a good job but I want something much better. The impetus for me looking at a new camera now specifically is a trip to south Africa at the end of October for which I'd like to pick up a new camera. Beyond that though I would love a great quality camera which can also manage at least 720p video at 30fps. Portability is high on the agenda too, it'd be great if I can stuff the camera in my flight bag for those opportunistic shots that often arise when overflying the alps at sunrise for example! To that end I've been trying to figure out what to get to best serve my needs, and thought I had settled on the panasonic lumix dmc gf1 with bundled 14-45mm lens which seems to tick all the right boxes. It is even due for release early October just in time for my holiday... Must be fate right?! Well anyway, I found that for around £630 in the uk, but then I took a look at the canon EOS 500D at the same place for £600 with an 18-55mm lens included. Am I mad for getting something like the GF1 instead of the 500D at that price? The main thing with the GF1 is the portability factor and ease of using it as a point and shoot when I want to, but the 500D seems to be much more camera for the money if you know what I mean. So any advice? Maybe even a cheaper model I haven't considered that would allow me to buy a second lens for those far away safari shots? Thanks a lot guys!
