As photographers, we're probably aware what's around us most of the time. We look at details, shapes and light, and we often document these things with our everyday cameras; be it a phone, compact digital, a film camera or whatever else we have to hand.
I always have my phone in my pocket so should I need to take a photo I can do so, but I'm often left waiting for the camera to open, and missing the moment due to the phone not being quick enough. This has left me longing for something to bridge the gap between my phone and DSLR's, and after reading numerous blogs I still can't decide what I want.
I recently saw Jay McLaughlin's blog about his Olympus E-PL1 camera and I've seen other photographers blogs about their Canon Powershot G-12 or their Sony Nex-7, or equivalents.
I guess what I'm looking for from those that use them, what made you make your final choice? What requirements did you have, and has it fullfilled those requirements since you got it? Is there anything you wanted it to do that it doesn't and you now know one that fills that requirement? Would you change to that one?
I'd be looking for something that's rather small and light, easy to use menus etc, that has the capability work work in varying scenarios i.e. harsh sunlight and low light etc so I think the Canon Powershot G-12 (or any other from that range) would be suited to what I want.
Feel free to comment underneath and share your everyday camera blogs/photos etc, I'd love to know what you use and how you use them
