Quality Pocket Sized Camera Recomendation


Recommended Posts

ok guys's carrying the Nikon D800 around is not practical, I also tried a Fuji X100 while the images were fantastic it was still too big.


I'm looking for something that will fit in a shirt pocket, allow a decent amount of manual control, RAW images, decent in low light and fast focus.

I have a Canon SX130IS and love it for everyday use.  It is not necessarily the quickest focusing, but it was about $250 a couple of years ago.  Here are a couple of pictures I took in CO about 2 years ago.  Both are taken from the same spot.  The first one is without zoom.  If you notice the water in the lower left part, the second picture is the edge of that water on maximum zoom - 12X optical and 48X total.

I had to compress the files by 50% due to file size maximum

It gets expensive quick. Good glass ain't cheap. I bet I'm approaching the cost of a new truck with the money I have into photo gear. I'm done buying new bodies. The mk-II was the last body I will dump over 3k on. It sells now for like $500 and its fine with me.
