panasonic lumix dmc-zs10 black

The humble point and shoot camera doesn’t get a lot of love these days, replaced by low-cost DSLRs and mobile phones with increasing resolution. Although you can turn your mobile phone into a better digital camera, most of us are still carrying a point and shoot to capture our lunch travel memories. Aside from an iPhone 4, my Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS10 is the only camera I travel with and responsible for nearly all of the pictures on this blog over the past two years.

Which digital point and shoot camera do you take pictures with on your travels?

Recently, my Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS10 became slightly damaged in Yemen so I’ll need to upgrade to the latest DMC-ZS20 model of Lumix later this month. I’m often asked what camera I would recommend for travelers not wanting a heavy, conspicuous DSLR. Without hesitation I can recommend the Lumix DMC-ZS10 but want to hear what you would – or wouldn’t – suggest based on your own experiences.
