Antique SLR's for travelling
Ack! We're back in the USA. See what we did in 2004-05:
Depending on how much you invest into your photography while travelling this could easily be:
a) Your one and only all-purpose, all-weather camera
b) A second camera to pair off a digital point and shoot, providing with higher quality glass and durability characteristics on the occasions where the friends-shooted-digital won't do.
I have a Yaschica similar to the AE1 and it's always thrown in the backpack. It's not my first-choice camera, but I always find myself in some situation where I thank myself for bringing the dependable meachanical workhorse.

I'd also bring the flash. I figure it this way, if you are willing to lug all the other stuff, how much extra could these two things be?? I bet that if you leave them, you'll need them, and nothing else. Normally I say minimize, but if you are already lugging a heavy AE1, whats a bit more??
The camera back was 3 kg and my total luggage 12 kg. But you need some dedication for good pictures i guess
