    The sensor is incredible, the rest of the camera is very much beta version, the mkII version of the camera is what this one should have been build, features, focus and ergonomics wise.

    Nice, my lug-around-when-theres-potentially-something-to-photograph is a g12 and if i dont carry that i have the beater sx240 on me (not really good for outstanding quality images, more for that funky little zoom lens) I have a weak-spot for uncomfortably large canon 'compacts'

    Good to see another Canon G-series user. It's a nice camera to use. Okay so it doesn't hold a candle on these 'full frame' monsters from Sony Canon or Nikon but still takes good photos.

    It a VERY nice camera to use! Unfortunatly mine isnt exactly compact anymore with all the presents i bought for it....

    But i could take all that off if i wanted to and still have a reasonably compact camera....

    And its true that it doesn't compare to the big sensor boys but, well, its not a big sensor camera! Comparing even a good compact to an entry level exchangeable lens camera is comparing apples to electricity. And sure, there's more compact cameras that give you equal or better performance but i just love these 'g's.

    Count me in!

    I carry this one everywhere.
    I had a much nicer one too but would never carry it so this is the one that I kept so I could beat on it really.

    If its not broke,why fix it?

    Taking its pic with the phone is another thing though?[​IMG]

    Wow you really went all out on the gadgets. Even though mine sometimes has a wireless flash trigger or a corded shutter remote attached to it, it's usually just the bare camera when out and about. There are a few things that I like about the G-series that, atleast a few years ago, wasn't that easy to find in compact cameras, like the chunkier body or the exp comp and ISO dials.

    Yay! Another G-user. We're taking over the thread now. I imagine taking phone pics is okay if you have a good camera on it, mine does not. I even dislike the ergonomics when using the phone as a camera.

    The Coolpix S01. It's carried and used for work five days a week. I bought it about three years ago and have only charged it once :) The time it takes to transfer photos from the camera keeps it topped up.

    This is what I use when I want to lug around a full size camera.

    I usually carry my Ricoh GR since it's the only one that fits in my jacket. Currently contemplating a Sony RX100MkIII purchase but can't seem to justify it though...

    Same here, I have huge hands so small cameras simply don't agree with me. I've owned an s90 and still have an sx240 but it just feels like I'm pinching a box of matches. I also am an absolute sucker for the dials, just love to be able to get my settings right even before turning on the camera and not having to deal with menus all the time.

    Fuji X100 for me with one of Luigi's leather half cases and a Footprint bridle leather strap.

    Drool. I had one of those quick releases for my Sony, it ripped the entire shutter release off. The Sony's are not built very well.

    Ouch! That sucks. This one is fixed focal and slightly bigger than optimal to carry everywhere but I keep it in my shoulder bag and the images that it produces are just stunning. This camera is the closest I've found to emulating the feel of a Leica M image and for that reason I put up with the rest.

    LOL! I'd love one but can't justify upgrading at the moment. Life is not allowing me to do much photography at the moment and TBH, the X100 does everything I need. Still want the "T" version, just don't "need" it. :uhhuh:

    Me neither, it's been a year or so since my last 'serious' photograph. :(

    Yeah, I go in phases. I have a blog at thirtyfivemill.com where I post some of my images for posterity. I go through phases of "product" type photography with a Nikon D300s, mostly macro shots of watches and EDC related stuff. Then I'll flip over to the X100 and spend some time in nature. And sometimes I'll just be too consumed by other stuff and work. I've learnt to relax and not stress it, though. Also had to learn to quit falling in love with equipment and keep falling in love with photography. Stay off the photography forums for the latter.. :rofl:

    Of course you want it. Fuji is the sexiest camera maker! I'm choking to get my mitts on the new X-Pro 2, it's going to be a beast! But like you, I'm finding it hard to justify.
