Considering this for my trip
http://www.henrys.ca/62065-CANON-SX30-IS-BLACK-14-1MP-35X-WIDE-ANGLE-2-7-.aspx

Pros:
-zomg! 35x optical zoom
-good hand feel
(various other features I am not going to detail one by one)

con:
-uses a different, bigger battery than my current camera, meaning unless I can find my old charger, my old camera still stands defunct. I could buy a new charger...for an old camera...but chargers are actually bloody expensive (for these types of betteries)
-obviously bulkier to carry around. My current camera can in fact slip into my pocket, and is still capable of taking acceptable pictures, making me consider whether what I really want in fact is jut to get a new charger and be done with it.

Hm...I forgot something.

I have more AA batteries at home than I know what to do with. Every time I do an Orpheus show, the batties used for the wireless mics are replaced every night. They end up with boxes and boxes of lightly used batteries, and people who work the show are welcome to take home a box or 3 of them. They probably easily have 80-90% of their charge still. A camera that uses double AA will let me actually make use of a surplus of batteries that I already have. Granted, AA batteries in a camera get chewed up and spit out at a remarkable rate, but they aren't doing much good on the shelf in my kitchen either.
