I am getting to the point that I am seeking some help here. I currently been using mostly Canon system. I have a 40D with a very basic lens 28-135. It has been very practical but to be honest, I just hate schlepping this SLR sp when I travel abroad. So I have been using my G9, but somehow I find it a bit too heavy and a bit too slow.
I have a budget of a max of $450. I'd like to stay in the p/shoot type of camera. I'm planning to go to Africa (African Safari), or India. I know, I know almost everybody suggest to take my 40D but the thought of carrying it, its enough to discount the thought.
I'd like to find a camera that would be:
GPS ready since I travel extensively
Small, light, be able to shoot in low light if I need it.
Be able to shoot faster between frames. Currently G9 a bit too slow.
I shoot mostly travel, and landscape, no macro, portraits, or people
I tried the Canon S100 too small I have average size hands, but I felt like I was a giant. I am somewhat used to the control and the operation of the G9. It makes me feel like I'm using a mini SLR. The other p/shoot camera that I've seen Lumix 5x , Samsung, the new Sony and Nikon, I didn't find anything close.
I'm not interested in adding another lens, since it would defeat the purpose of using a p/shoot camera. I've seen the new Sony with the longer lens, and it feels like the camera is tipping over.
I'd appreciate any suggestions from this forum. Thanks
