Topic - Help - new high-end small wide angle camera?

wee jamie on 14 Sep 2012
I was looking at the Canon S100, but have now found others that might give me better quality and larger images (but with larger bodies).
This is what I want to do with my new camera:
Carry it everywhere with me in the mountains, keep it in my pocket (preferably) or in a bum bag. Must be as small and light weight as possible.
It must have a wide angle equivalent of 24mm or wider.
I would also like to be able to photograph my paintings and use the images to make prints at about A3 size - the images must be perfect - sharp across the whole frame, and not distorted in any way.
Finally, battery life must be good - don't mind carrying spares (as long as they're not too expensive) but some trips I'll be away from a charger for four days at a time.
Cameras I've looked at so far are the Canon S100, Sony NEX 3/5 and 6, possibly the new Canon EOS M.
Any advice on suitable cameras would be much appreciated.
Thanks, Jamie
