Like a few others, I recently purchased a G15 for a small, easy to have along camera. The filter adapter lets me use a polarizer, and if I don't want the extra size, it stays in the car or pocket, and just the camera comes along. Great size and image, and works well in it's assigned job.

I use an Olympus MJU mark 1, full frame, sharp lens, QUICK focusing and accurate metering.
Not to mention compact! you can easily mistake it for a computer mouse.

I got mine for $5 at a flea market.

Generally use my DSLR 100% of the time but if I'm just out and about the camera on my Galaxy S2X takes some very nice snapshots.

The camera is just a tool - it is not responsible for the picture.

EOS M w/ 22 2.0 pancake. I can always slide a 270ex in gf purse for those times when you really have to use the flash.

I actually don't own one but I'm going to some places where I just don't want to lug my 5D iii. I want something "good" and it doesn't have to be pocket sized. I'm not fixated on any particular make or configuration but there sure are a LOT of choices out there. I've done lots of research but I've learned there's nothing like experience so I'm throwing it out there so you share your real world experience with me. I cycle and am adding some hiking/moderate climbing to that so I can comfortably carry a G1S for example in a bike pack so that's the likely size limit.

So--what do you use when you aren't lugging a bag with your gear?

In the spirit of Digital Rev TV's ProTog CheapCam series, I use both an ELPH 330 and a G16 as alternative cameras to the gripped 5DM3. The Elph is cute, tiny, nice to hold, and works well to ISO 3200. While it can't shoot RAW or fully manual, I've made it do some incredible things for me. Btw, I shot the photo below with the camera set to use a 1:1 aspect ratio.


The G16 is a replacement to my old G9, which actually produced photos that made it into a real, live honest-to-goodness book on aviation safety. While the G16 has advanced in a couple areas (good to ISO 6400 (vs 800 with the G9)) and stepped back in a couple other areas (can't "shoot" sepia in RAW), I like it and find it better overall than the G9 it replaced. I used it on a NYC trip this last spring where I was a chaperone for The Kiddo's™ high school band. Folks seemed to like the photos just fine. The photo below was taken hand-held.


Both the Elph and G16 are grab-n-go cameras I use as the situation permits. The Elph makes great snapshots. The G16 can work like a DSLR when I can't or shouldn't bring one.

So there you go, experience with the pics to show how it worked. These are limited cameras, and you need to work with them to produce good pictures. Translated: You need to read the manuals and play with the cameras to see what they can do. I love my Elph and G16. I also love my 5DM3. The photo below came from the 5DM3.


I hope all of this helps. Good luck!

I found myself in the same place in January. What should I get when I don't want to carry a gripped & bracketed 5D3 with heavy glass? As my digital photography progression started with a G3, then a G5 before going to DSLRs, I figured G series.

Of course, the G15 filled the bill perfectly. Filled the need, full manual control and RAW output, and fully compatible with my flash gear. AND - it's built like a tank. I happened to catch one on sale at B&H for $299 in February and it came with a 16gb card as well. Unfortunately, it's not on sale at the moment...

Chalk me up as another EOS M with the 22mm pancake. Actually I have both the 22 and the 18-55 and I keep them both stored in my everyday carry bag. If I'm going on a business trip and I'm pretty certain that I'll have free time to kill to go shooting then I'll also toss my 24-105 and the EF adapter into my suitcase with my clothes. I went hiking on Mt Rainier with the EOS M and 24-105 attached and got some great images that you really can't tell apart from what I'd get from my 5D3.

S95 and my old Panasonic DMC-FZ18. I have the EOS-M as well, but I don't really consider that a P&S.
