Best pocket-cam for DC?
I am going to be touring DC and I have to travel super-light. No bulky cameras or extra equipment. I need a small camera I can keep in my pocket for all-day. I'm going to be touring anything and everything so my question is, do I want a long zoom like a 16x pocket cam? Or a wide-aperture short zoom camera?
If I go with a short zoom I am looking at something like the Canon S90/S95. If I am looking for a 'pocket superzoom' I'd probably look at Sony.
I honestly don't know what kind of conditions I will be in; low light? In need of long focal length? so what will be my safest bet for such a city?
Also, I don't want to spend too much as this will essentially be a camera I use for a week of touring and then trying to re-sell. If I can't find a buyer I don't want to out too much the trip alone already cost upwards of 2K. (which is why I am looking at S90/S95 and not the S100)
