Yup, it's a canon S3IS. I'm not sure whether to send rechargeable batteries and a charger or just a large pack of duracells. I've got a 2 or 4 gb card for it which should last it for its journey without deleting any but it'd be nice for anyone competent enough to back it up online to ensure nothing is lost. This also makes it more accessible I think. There shouldn't need to be postage costs as most of the travelling can hopefully be planned by orgers.

The pictures of location and/or a thread should let us keep track of it and map it's journey.

I don't need the camera back in any specific time frame and I appreciate it might get broken on its journey so no hard feelings if so. I see a week per person as a reasonable guide timeframe but it is up to whoever has it at the time I guess.

It could be interesting to see what different people can do with the same hardware. It's got a pretty decent zoom on it and can do 15 second exposures natively IIRC so it offers some scope for creativity.

Looking like a positive response so far, will let the poll run and suggestions flow and then formulate some plan at the end of the week if so.

Thanks for all the replies so far.

They did this on the canon forum I frequent, but did it with a 50mm lens and the user posted the photos in a special.thread. it went around the world until it died.
