bring a lens pen and a mircofiber cloth to clean your equipment if needed.

if you perfer, get the ixus strap to hang the cam on your neck.

get enough memory and a spare batt, bring your charger along.

have fun and enjoy your holiday!

Hmm.. Thanks. I have the spare batt and charger ready.

I have 2 128mb card (about 120 shots). Dun think will be enuff unless i keep popping over to the internet cafe to transfer the photos. Should I get another 256 card just for this trip?

How long will you be away for? Where will you be going?

Some parts of the world have photo shops where you can burn your images onto a CD. If your destination is not too "ulu" you may already have enough storage.

Getting a 256MB card will let you shoot 240 images in total. Depending on how you shoot and how long you will be away for, this may or may not be enough. Only YOU can decide whether it's enough, none of us can advise you on that!

If you're going to an ulu place for a long time, consider investing in a digital wallet - that's a portable HDD with battery and CF reader.

A lot of times we go out buying lots of memory for that BIG trip we take maybe once every 2 years. The rest of the time the memory cards are sloshing around the bottom of the drawer. Digital photography is very popular these days, and maybe you have a few friends who have some cards they can lend you? I have found it more economical this way.

Cheers,

Thanks you guys. Think I will follow Amfibius's advice of going to photo shops to burn into cd. I believe Melborne city is not considered ulu. Ha...

And my 2nd 128 card is borrowed from friends. Hehee.. Thanks again.

dont forget to bring the appropriate ac adapter plugs without which your charger may be useless.
