My family and i are going to Germany, Austria and maybe a little bit of northern Italy in April.
Right now I do not have a cell phone that will work in Europe. At the same time my old manual Pentax that is in need of repair, and it is difficult to find places that repair them.
Since I am traveling with my husband and kids, there may be times when we split up to do separate things, so I feel I must have a functioning cellphone.
I know that I want to have a decent camera, although I know I cannot spend the money on the high end digital camera right now I would like to have. (we need to pay for the trip!)
In my day to day life at home in the states, a plain and simple cell phone is fine for me. I don't care about having the latest technology.
I am thinking of buying a used iphone or another type of cell phone that has a decent camera in it.
I do not have the budget right now for a new cell phone and a new camera. So I am torn.
Should I by a low price camera, or a cell phone?
Are the photo qualities similar?
Any recommendations on the types of cell phones that take the best photos?
