Topic - Multi-pitch camera: S95/S100, S9100 or P310?

Coel Hellier - on 04 Jul 2012
Can people recommend a camera primarily for carrying on multi-pitch climbs, so size/portability are crucial (I have a D90 dSLR as my main camera)? Been thinking about a Canon S95/S100 or a Nikon P310 or S9100, but I'd welcome advice from anyone who has one of these or can recommend something similar.

Also, any opinions on a 200-g camera (S95?) v a 400-g class (G12?) (I realise it's a trade off of capability v weight).

Things I care about: weight/compactness, image quality, lens zoom range, especially wide-angle shots, some degree of manual control.

Things I don't care about: video, GPS, flash, shooting indoors, vastly more pixels than my computer monitor.

Not sure whether I care: RAW format, sensor size, panoramic stitching, low-light/high-ISO ability, battery life.

Thanks for any help.
