Hi, I would like to by a camera.. I am not a professional, but I really like taking pictures and I am doing it quiet often.. I was considering to buy DSLR, but I finally reject this idea, because they are too big and heavy for me. I would like to carry the camera by myself for longer trips, so that is why I started to look for high end compact or maybe micro 4/3 cameras. The main priority for me is shutter speed (for taking pictures of moving people and for night scenes), good performance (noise, dynamic range) and kind of universality (macro, portrait, landscape). Small size, weight and easy handling will be also good. I would like to have a option of manual mode, because often auto mode doesn't satisfy me and I want to set attributes by myself.. My favorites are Canon G11 and Panasonic LX3. I am mainly interested in comparasion in their speed and performance.. I am open to other alternatives, but I am not sure if I could afford some significantly more expesive camera.. I hardly can try all cameras by myself, so I am really looking forward to your experiences and recommendations. Thank you very much.
