I didnt see a thread for this, so i figured I'd throw up one up. I am going on a trip with some friends to Asia in a few months. I have never had a decent camera aside from cell phone camera's and a GoPro Hero. I have about $400 in Visa giftcards that I want to throw into my Amazon account and get a decent camera for the trip that I can take really great pictures with. My total budget is around $500 (Ill throw an extra $100 if needed). What are some good recommendations? Planning to take pictures of scenery and cityscapes. Are Canon Coolpix any good? Are DSLR cameras worth it?
