From Aug 2006 - Nov 2013 WeDig provided a live forum for diggers & fans of Vindolanda. It has now been mothballed and will be maintained as a live archive.

Here you will find preserved 7 years of conversation, photos, & knowledge about a site many people love. Vindolanda gets under the skin. (Figuratively and literally as a volunteer excavator!) It's a place you remember, filled with people you remember!

Thanks for 7 great years!

I'm a Canon guy myself, I'd give the S95 a close look. It was recently superseded by the S100, but is reckoned to be optically as good as the S100 and got a big price cut. 195 quid on Amazon but was selling for 350 just 9 months ago, before the S100 came out. VERY good value for money, their quality/reliability is usually excellent.

The Lumix's snowglobe mentioned are probably good too, although the 16x makes me nervous. For them to get a 24-384mm (yes I looked it up :P ) range they MUST have made considerable sacrifices at one end (wide or tele) or both.

Nikon Coolpix P310 is another contender.

If you can, test them at a shop, they should be willing to let you compare some shots you took with various cameras. My advice is always to base your decision on image quality, not the fancy specs the makers quote...
