new camera for trip

Jump to last reply

I am going on a trip to the southwest and need a camera. I have a canon eos rebel xt from 2005. It could use some cleaning and maybe a battery compartment repair (not holding a charge even with new battery). It is bulky to carry around. I will be doing a lot of hiking and climbing around with 3 small kids. I was thinking about getting instead the canon powershot sx40 hs. Any thoughts on which camera would be a better fit, and give me quality photos of the beautiful southwest?

Thanks :)
