We have both but I dont want to spend the whole vacation looking through a gadget

Which would you take? have you had more pleasure from your stills or videos?

We always take both but if it had to be just one it would be the still camera most definitely - you can always make a slide show when you get home. :D

The things I like to video most are just the general walking around the parks and the details, I also like getting footage of the kids with characters etc, I always find these are the bits that i like to watch when we get back - I tend to fast forward the shows and parades. :)

oh i get more from the videos without a doubt, its real time and you just cant get that time back

that would be a very hard choice for me as I look through my photos quite often but, I think they are pipped at the post by the camcorder. I watch the parades and shows etc while I'm ironing :p015:

We always take both and I don't think I could be without either one :p015: I think I came home with 5 hours of video last time and I love it!! I'm sure with this next one being Katelyn's first trip..well..actually..it will be both of their first trips (I forgot that for a minute), I'm sure we will have them both going the whole time. :lol:

I take both but I don't take the camcorder out with me everyday unlike the camera which I am never without. I love watching the video though when I get home.
