Camera for taking everywhere
5 months ago
Been lurking for a while now. I'm wanting to move up from a P&S to an enthusiast level camera. I've used my dad's D7000 off and on, so I'm familiar with some of the basics of manual control. The main things I'm looking for are as follows:
I mainly want to take this camera everywhere I go with me, especially to social events. I don't mind if it doesn't necessarily fit in my pocket, but if I'm going to a dressier event I'd rather not be hauling around a giant DSLR and pointing it at people. That's why I'd prefer something smaller, or at the very least, something that wouldn't look horribly out of place while being dressed up.
Most of my shots will likely be low light, so I've been leaning towards something with an APS-C sized sensor to get as much of an advantage as I can. The Sony NEX line seems nice, but for some reason I've never been too impressed by sample shots I've seen. I've also considered the Fuji X100, though there seems to be mixed reviews on some of its "quirkiness". Others I've looked at are the Panasonic GF1, Sony RX100, and a bit in the Olympus M4/3 line but I can't make heads or tails of their product naming.
Any suggestions or recommendations for a camera? Any help is much appreciated.
