    Several threads here and on other fora got me thinking just how minimalist I could go in gear while traveling.
    Between calls I played with my Nokia N8 and an app called CameraPro.
    This app gives enormous control over the camera in phone, including the best digital zoom I have ever seen.
    Here are two example shots
    28mm-e straight from camera
    5829337781_fe358db34b_b.
    And zoomed 1/2 way
    5827576659_bc4f41cd03.
    the zoomed IQ is nowhere near great but it is very usable if one has nothing else to hand.
    CameraPro gives one the ability also to change jpeg compression; here I used it at 100%-zero compression
    the file sizes are huge but it allows one to get away with shots like this.
    For web/blog use these would suffice I think.

    i just tried same shot with with XZ, efl is like 90mm.
    IQ from Xz is FAR FAR FAR Better!
    So my minmal kit would be XZ-1 or F200EXR!
