|Charging batteries in
Myanmar & Cambodia
As more people here I'm considering buying a good digital camera
for my trip to a.o. Myanmar & Cambodia. I've read the comments
that I shouldn't worry too much about battery life if I take an
extra one with me. But just in case: is it easy to charge lithium
ion batteries in Myanmar & Cambodia? (I know it's probably
better to take AA batteries, but the camera's I'm considering all
have lithium ion) I've heart that electricity is not very reliable
I'm considering the Sony Mavica MVC-CD500 (because of the cheap CD
storage possibilities and the good lens). Does anybody know
approx. how many pictures you can take before recharging?
By the way I don't see the Sony Mavica recommended much in this
section, besides Dave's Picks List for travellers. Is there a
specific reason for this, I'm I missing out on some much better
thnx for the help!
problem with the Mavicas is that they tend to be bulky, if you're
travelling generally smaller is better. Usually the CD makes them
slower to capture images, and they're limited to around 156Mb per
CD - not a problem if you're storing small JPEGs, a serious
problem if you're going with TIFF/RAW.

in Cambodia and Myanmar is not a problem. If you are going to some
'very off the beaten path' places you may have to pay attention to
the time of day that power is on (generally early evening). Small
villages may depend on a generator for their power and kick it on
for the evening meal and a bit of TV ;o).
