SCORE 15 MSRP: >$1200
The Nikon D-70 camera with the two lenses is a wonderful DSLR camera and with one extra battery will take wonderful photos of the highest quality for a month long trip. However the camera, lenses, mini-tripod, extra battery and all important waterproof Pelican box weighs in at nearly ten pounds! There are so many high quality point and shoot cameras, some of which are even waterproof, that it is hard to justify bringing this behemoth. I think it’s time to down size.
