Assuming that you don't want to carry a big heavy DSLR when traveling, and assuming that video recording is of no interest to you, which of these two cameras would you choose for travel photography, and why?

Neither, I would probably go with the S100.

Second choice:

I am really not a big zoom fanatic, so the SX40 doesn't interest me at all.

So second choice would be the G1x because it is smaller/lighter, and I am certain will deliver much better image quality than an SX40. There is that whopping price difference though.
