Every camera below the 1D level is a compromise, and the best camera is the one I have with me. More often than not that's my iPhone. But when I'm too lazy to carry a DSLR and still hope to catch something my iPhone does't, my compromise includes some zoom without a lot of weight and bulk, and many of these so-called enthusiast cameras have too little zoom to be useful. The right compromise for me is the Stylus 1, plenty zoom, a little larger sensor than a 1/2.3, bright lens, lovely viewfinder and very pleasant general handling. I suppose the Casio EX-100 is very similar - a little more compact, but no viewfinder (and not available everywhere).
Is there a way to list all gold awards? Or have a list of scores of cameras?
