My Canon SX 270 has been a great little camera, BUT....there's a new toddler in the extended family.
There is simply NO TIME to half depress the shutter to lock focus, hold it there, recompose, then fully depress the shutter.

The same thing applies with my street photography......those fleeting moments are indeed, fleeting.

Obviously, it's time for a DSLR.
However, I am lucky enough to travel extensively, so weight/size is a major issue.

I'm considering the Canon "smallest DSLR in the world", but would welcome any user feedback.

Cheers, del Sol

there isn't a right or wrong here, but lots of options, and lenses to consider.

it can fry your brain, trying to find the 'right' new toy!

I wouldn't disregard a fuji, sony, or even the G3X as an option, but the SL1 with a 40mm pancake may be a start or a 24mm pancake, or ... well, there are just a ton of choices out there for you!

used dslr's are easy to find uner $200 for the body and sometimes body + lens, a rebel with a 17-55mm isn't a bad start either, and is pretty light, and can be had pretty cheap.


Godox/Flashpoint r2 system, plus some canon stuff.
