Is there ANY small, non-SLR camera that doesn't suck?
May 6, 2008

Since the advent of the 5 MP chips, small cams have been so riddled with noise as to make them nearly useless.

Recently I got fed up with lugging my 20D around on a golf trip and wished I had a good-quality P&S camera. But as far as I can tell, there aren't any made currently. Cramming 8, 10, or 12 megapixels onto these puny chips is asinine, and the result is exactly what you see in the reviews: "details" that are nothing more than a colored hash, thanks to ridiculous amounts of noise and the effort to suppress it.

Is there a low-noise, small camera?

Thanks for any info.
