I'm in a bit of a quandary. We are going to India in December for a friend's wedding. We're very excited, India is a dream destination for us and to be the guests at a traditional Hindu wedding is an unbelievable honor!

The problem is what camera to take? (The LF is out of the question) Considerations include the fact that after the wedding we'll be travelling a great deal and frankly we've been warned by our friends that theft is quite a problem in many places in India. There is also the fact that I am just not a camera around the neck type of traveler. Sure I'll want to take some camera jaunts and I do want to be prepared to capture things that strike my fancy but I don't like to have a camera between me and the world all the time.

So, the candidates are:
Bessa R2
Nikkormat FT2
N50
Voigtlander Vito II
Zeiss Ikon 6x9

Looking at the list I'd say the N50 is the least important to me (I'd probably like it to be stolen!) The rest have their pluses and minuses. Of course I could always let this be an excuse to by another camera!

So, any suggestions? Anyone have any camera experience in India?

Thanks,
