hi guys, my girlfriend is doing a trek to everest base camp to raise money for charity and she'd like to get some footage/piccies while she's there.
The budget for everything ideally would be under £250 sterling (to include batteries, memory cards etc), but I haven't really a clue what to get her.
there won't be any access to a power supply to charge batteries etc.and noPC to save the footage/picturesonto so she'll essentially have to be self sufficient.
in a nutshell i'm looking for a camera or camcorder thats reasonable for movies and stills,with a long battery life.
i have seen a mustek5300 which takesAAA batteries(which i can get her a solar powered battery charger for) which would leave a good portion of cash to buy enoughmemory cards to last the trip. i also quite like the look of the sanyo xacti but any ideas anyonehas would be most welcome.
