May resort back to the Canon ,shooting transparency film and scanning the images I want to use.
Best wishes to your part of the world. My wifes from Newport and I spent many saturdays getting the hell kicked out of me on the Rugby fields of cardiff and the valleys.

P.s. not sure what they taste like;but they smell pretty bad!!!
Small world isn't it?
I have been a serious camera nut mfor many years - even got into medium and large format stuff - digi cameras will never get to the quality of slow transparency film - but for sheer ease of use.
My Canon gear hasn't been touched in the last year - the ease of not so much taking as VIEWING the images is amazing - and the quality of a good Epson printer is incredible when you decide to print out that special shot!
Got to be honest though - took over 3000 shots on holiday - as it doesn't cost anything you just zap away = quantity not quality but if you can force yourself to slow down you can get very good results.
Personally I wouldn't spend too much on a digi camera at the moment - the technology is changing too fast - the Lumix I have is not too expensive and gives great results.
A lot of people are lured by the megapixels - don't bother - the lens is the most important part - most people with high res (megapixel) cameras don't shoot onj high qulaity anyway to get more shots on the storage card and make the image easier to handle. My mate has an 8mp camera and never goes over 4mp so what is the point?
