Hi friends, sorry if this thread is it at the wrong place but it is the best I could guess.
Quick story short, I am hired to shoot night time events, where a dslr, any removable lens camera or any ''professionnal looking camera'' is prohibited. No way around this rule.
This said, I want the point and shoot on the market. I used to own a G15, which I liked. Good F1.8 aperture, fast focussing in daytime. Once the sun is down? Too slow. Can often take several seconds to focus and that is a deal breaker. Also, it's 28mm focal lenght equivalent is often too tight, I would prefer something wider.
Basically, I need as much advantages of a dslr, in a non-removable lens compact camera.
So, my key points are:
-Minimal shutter lag
-Manual settings, RAW files
Brand isn't important, not restricted to Canon only.
What are your recomendations? I did as much research as I could, but getting opinions from other photographers is always better.
