Is due to two things. One I have this huge professional camera, a Nikon D2x. I’m searching for a smaller point and shoot. I am choosing between the Canon S100, the Nikon P300 or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5. The Canon is supposed to go on sale in November, it appears to be a slight improvement over last year’s S95 (which would suffice for me). I think I’ll actually go with the Canon as it’s the smallest.
It would be nice to get one before my trip to India in 10 days. Hopefully I can find one here on the island.
With a smaller camera I can take more pictures of people here on the island and during my other travels. The big camera draws attention that I think will ruin many pictures of people just going about their lives.
