Which camera?

I’ve had this blog post in my head for a little while. I have a bunch of different cameras that are great in different scenarios.

I had an Oslo card that included unlimited public transport, and Google Maps – between these I was able to get on a bus heading north out of town and around the edge of the fjord to a Viking Boat Museum. I don’t usually like busses, but these one did have USB charging ports in each seat.
