Panasonic DMC-GH2Panasonic DMC-GH2
Dreams Can Come True

There is so much to love about the new Panasonic DMC-GH2 it is hard to know where to begin. The Micro Four-Thirds format has finally come of age and the GH2 is leading the pack. Is it a great camera that shoots HD video, or is it a serious video camera that also shoots photos? You will have to decide. But our decision is simple. WE WANT ONE!

Canon EOS Rebel T2i Digital SLR
A powerhouse camera that's loaded with features

The T2i (EOS 550 in Europe and Asia) is Canon's new top-of-the-line "prosumer" digital SLR camera. The camera shares the same 18-megapixel sensor as the more expensive 7D and offers Full HD (1080p) video capabilities. The question is not whether this camera has the capabilities, but rather, does it have too much for the average novice photographer? We attempt to answer that question in our full review.

We have not tried this. Of course, you have to have the maps loaded in the GPS for the country or region where you are traveling. Most GPS units only ship with the North American maps. We use a GPS on our motorcycle religiously though and it works great!

Have you had any luck with hand held GPS units when on any of your cruises out on the open water, and or excursions?
