I am in the market for a new camera I can stick in my pocket. It's a birthday present to myself. I'm dreaming of DSLR quality in a size I can carry along on any adventure. In researching digital cameras I happened up on a site called snapsort.com. They even have a category called 'Tiny Pro' complete with 'advantages' and 'trade-offs' with each camera. If you know what you are looking for it's a quick and easy way to make comparisons.
I wanted something that felt good in my hands. I wanted a wide aperature. I wanted a high iso range with low noise. I wanted video.
My pick the Canon G12.
