/ compact camera, with a view finder?
Fuji X10 would fit the bill. Got one and love it to bits, only niggle is that neither Lightroom or Aperture have decent RAW processing for it yet but the jpegs are marvellous. Looks great as well....
Or a G11: some places still have them new at bargain prices.
G1x iirc, supersedes the G12 but not by a great deal.
It's pish Kevin. The new EXR sensor works by pairing pixels in low light situations. The RAW convertor just takes one of those pixels and gives you a half resolution RAW. The choice is then either a 6mp RAW or a 12 mp jpeg. So far neither Adobe or nor Apple have come up with a proper raw convertor.
> G1x iirc, supersedes the G12 but not by a great deal.
No, G1x is new camera altogether with a much much bigger sensor and considerably bigger body than the existing G series. And it's about £250 dearer. It does have a viewfinder, though.
G12/13/14... etc. will continue separate to G1x line.
If you get a XZ-1 be prepared to shoot in raw for best results, the in camera Jpeg engine has over aggressive noise reduction issues.
