I have two pocket cameras I always have with me. Generally, I find my 7D easier to use for what I want to do and very often a picture I want to take is just impossible with a pocket camera. But I still love my S95 pocket camera.

I have a Fuji compact that is in the car all the time plus a Fuji 14 mpxl bridge camera in my main camera bag. Right now the Fuji X100 has me drooling and it's only a matter of time.

I liked the G6 because it used the same battery and memory as my DSLR. It also had an f2.0 lens. It wasn't THAT compact though.

I've had a G9 and 2 G11's. I was glad to see the folding screen come back on the '11.
I missed not haveing an f/2.0 lens, as the early G's had.
At the cost of batteries today, replacements or spares are expensive. (I still have a G9 and a G11 spare....) so having a common size would be nice.
So...if the G13 had a faster lens, I would buy one in a flash!

edit: that's why I keep looking at s95's. Wish I had bought one instead of my LX5 Pany.

I’m happy with my S95 but I dithered between that and the LX5. I think I’d have been pretty happy with either. Each has its advantages.

Simon, I know--the LX5 is a very capable camera.
When I bought I caught a special price--for a day--for the LX5, and took advantage of half-back from Henry's for my G11. Figured the LX5 was good to go out the door. However, the screen is hard to see in bright sunlight--skiing. That's one of my prime uses. So I bought the Electronic View Finder. Now it's less portable than my G11 was. And I'm about $190 dollars poorer.

The S95 has, I believe, a screen that poses no problems. And I could/would have added a Franiec grip.
It is more portable than my chosen camera. Certainly much more portable than the LX5 plus the EVF, an essential accessory for me.
The LX5 does take wonderful photos, provided I don't let the ISO creep up. And the lens is a delight.

Best,


Dave

I have an SD1200 IS and then I got my Droid. Both have been very good at reach cameras when I wasn't carrying my DSLR.

Best,

I have my S95 set so the ISO won't go up much. I shoot in RAW. I have the Franiec grip also - from brand new. Otherwise the S95 is an ugly bugger. It is very portable.

Why oh why so few pocket cameras with optical finders any more?

The reason I nearly got the LX5 is because it focuses closer. Important to me and totally unimportant for lots of other people. It also goes a bit wider.

Simon--I don't know. I've wondered the same.
I'm colourblind. You don't want to see what I can do to a photo or a tv screen when I attempt to produce good colour.
So I shoot jpeg.
I was also weaned on a couple of Pentax's and then a full Leica M3 system. Used to getting photos out of the camera. Have no interest in spending more time in front of a computer (remember I won't get the results as good as the camera, being colour blind.)
I feel that I didn't research my camera choice well enough, considering the screen issue in bright light. I do enjoy the EVF, until I have to assemble it before taking pictures, then disassemble it before skiing. (I was a ski instructor for 35 years. Used to pack a N. F3+motor drive and lenses. (Weddings, portraits, sports photography) I'm just spoiled now with delightful little P&S's.
And it's good to have choices.
Best,


Dave

I love my G11. Also, for when I have a flyrod in hand, the Oly Waterproof is the best !

Can't do this with my 7D
