I have it on good authority that there are outlets to recharge your batteries on the Disney ships.

I know this might be a stupid question but are Flash memory cards ok to get? I'm getting so confused. I'm seeing Flash memory cards and just memory cards. Is there a difference?

It's not a stupid question, they call them so many things. You want to buy a "SD" High Speed card. Just run to Best Buy or even Target and ask in the camera department. They cost anywhere from $15-$25 depending on where you buy them and the memory on them.

Thank you. It is built on a template from ProPhotoBlogs and then I have been working to fine tune it myself. It's not there yet but close I think.

Usually that price in a store only gets you 16GB. Waiting for an online deal can get you 32GB, so why not?

I would go for a class 10 card (class 4 and 6 are slower specs). Another deal site , fatwallet, is showing that buy.com has a 32GB SDHC class 10 SanDisk Ultra for 23.99. Now a full DSLr may want a faster card, but that should be a good RX card.

I never buy larger than 8 gig cards. I would rather carry two, three, four cards in my pocket than take the chance of one 32 G card that can be lost or it crashed and with it all my photos. Not worth the chance, especially children and/or vacation photos.

It's a valid point. I do carry an 8 GB and 2 batteries as a spares.

I copy to my laptop every day, so I'm not limited to 1 copy of an entire vacation of memories.
I think it is now too easy to fill up 8 GB with HD video and pictures. I would prefer 16 GB cards if I were using your method without a backup drive.

I do remember how cool it was when I went from a 1 GB card to 4 GB cards on my old 7 megapixel camera (back in the days when those cards were in the $50-$100 range)

When traveling I also upload to the laptop each night and to an external drive as well unless we have great wi-fi service and then I upload to our server as the backup to the laptop.

A couple different thoughts for others to consider - with the file sizes getting so large the number of pictures on a 16GB card is not that different in number compared to what you used to put on a 8GB card. And the chance of losing or damaging a card while changing or carrying one seems more risky also than something happening to a card that is in the camera.

I just picked up the RX100 a couple of days ago....and consider me very impressed. By far...I mean BY FAR...the best point & shoot camera I have come across.

The term "game changer" has different meaning to different people...but in my mind this camera is a game changer. It's good enough to actually force me to put down my beloved D800 and go out and shoot with it.

This camera is a bit pricey. However, the ability to leave the bigger cameras at home once in a while and not terribly compromise the quality of my pictures...priceless.

The majority of reviews from professionals and non-professionals alike have been very positive. Sony has themselves a real winner on their hands....IMHO.
