I was simply going to ask, if any of you would ever take a point and shoot camera over your DSLR gear for use in photographing your cruise vacation, just to see how you'd answer that. But I need to explain further. I have a NE cruise (with lots of shore excursions)in the works for September(NYC-Quebec). I'd like to travel light; possibly leaving my DSLR gear behind and taking only my Panasonic FZ30 with TCON-1.7, and maybe purchasing a W/A adapter, too. I'm mainly interested in 4X6 or 5X7 prints of the better images, but with 8X10s of the very best ones. Do you feel the FZ30 is up to the task? And if so, do you feel that the purchase of a W/A adapter would be a wise investment? Would that extra 10mm of width be worth the expense? Is 35mm to 24mm really a noticable difference in most cases? Your thoughts, opinions, suggestions?
