I am new to this forum - and I am looking for some helpful advice as to which camera I should get next. I sold my Canon EOS Digital Rebel, all the lenses I had for it, the flash and bracket, bag, filters, etc. - the works.... Why? It was just too much to lug around for everyday use. I didn't use it at Christmas time for this reason, and I recently spent a month in the Philippines and I didn't take it there either for that reason. I took a little 3.2 mp Samsung point and shoot that I paid $120 for about 2 or 3 years ago.... It's performance was sub-par. After Christmas, I decided I would sell the SLR camera because although I really liked it, it is just impractical for everyday use. For me, it took the fun out of photography. So now, I am looking for a non-SLR digital that will be a top performer. Price range is $400 - $600 or so. One of my biggest priorities in the new camera is that it should be able to take good photos with no flash. I dislike using flash when I am photographing people. With my Canon SLR, my most frequently used lens was a 50mm f/1.8. I used it almost all the time - and used no flash. That lens was great. Also, for those times when using flash is unavoidable, it would be great to be able to aim the flash at the ceiling or off to the side or something. This might be too much to ask of a non-SLR, but if it's out there, I might be interested. Any suggestions? Thanks!
