    I would suggest you take two cameras, one for a back-up in case your main one lets you down. If you do get a problem with your only camera you would feel pretty sick without a spare.

    Meg and I will be driving or bussing by, sometime in June 2011. So when you see a couple of odd Canadians, with cameras, bumbling about or lost in the moors....it could be us.
