Camera Type opinions!

Jump to last reply

We will be going with OAT on Safari to Kenya and Tanzania in July. We have two Nikon point and shoot cameras. Mine is 12 mega w/18X optical zoom and the other is Nikon 14 mega w/10X optical zoom. We have gotten great pictures on trips to other areas.. Do you think these should suffice for game drives in Africa. Our Canon video camera goes to 28X zoom.

Are you going to tell us that we are nuts to take these point and shoot and to get digital single lens reflex with telephoto, etc?

Thoughts/opinions !!

Thanks

JH
