    A 75 year old woman friend is going to Antarctica in 7 months and wants camera advice.  She’s never really been into photography. Goal is “some good pictures that I can print and frame on the walls.”  And “not too big and heavy”.   I’m thinking that her best option is a 1″ sensor camera with long zoom range,.  Either a  “compact travel camera” or a bridge camera.  Something like 24-300mm or so range.  Looks like that would mean either Sony or Panasonic.  What do you think?  Can either of these camera types take the potential cold weather?  And is anything in these classes water resistent or waterproof?  Any other ideas?
