P&S in place of D200
Jul 2, 2007

Hi all,

I originally posted this in the Nikon Talk forum, but in retrospect, I'm open to advice on all brands of cameras.

I'm looking for advice on which P&S or SLR-like camera would be a good replacement for my D200 while I'm on the road in some less than hospitable places.
I'm looking for something that has
a) Good battery life
b) Good zoom range
c) Good image quality at low ISO - High ISO isn't really a big deal for me
d) Fast shutter response - little lag between button and shutter action

I'm going to be traveling in Africa for the next 6 months on business, and my SLR is just too big to take for most of this. With current airline restrictions leaving the UK, I can't get my SLR with the 70-200 lens, my laptop, a book and a glasses case in a small enough bag. I'm also concerned about drawing attention to myself with a massive looking camera in some of the places I will be going.

Thanks in advance,
