I have a Nikon D70s as my camera of choice. I'd like to get a small camera I can carry in my pocket for times when I don't have the Nikon. What I would really like is one that will save in Raw. I know the Olympus SP-350 will but it has a rather limited zoom. Are there other/better choices out there?
Thanks
Ron

rappar, I have the D50 and as my second carry-around digicam I for the Fujifilm F10 as it has the best low-light results at high ISOs of any other P&S. Ofcourse, it sports only a 3X zoom but it's a great easy to use cam by anybody (don't have to know much about controls to really get a bang out of it). I ocasionally use it myself when I don't feel like carrying the D50 w/ lense(s) but my fgolks mainly use it as it is so easy to handle and very pocketable.
You might want to take a look at the F30 as well.
Cheers!

I use a Fuji F-30 as my pocket camera/companion to my Nikon D-50 DSLR. It is a really good P&S camera, and I have really enjoyed using it.

With all the cameras you have it really must be difficult getting out of the house before deciding which ones you are going to take with you. LOL

If you are going to be a fullyeffective Digital Camera Instructor, you have to be very familiar with and regularly use a wide number of current cameras. I figure it is my money and if I enjoy it, and become more effective in the process, why not.

I wasn't knocking it and I wish I had the luxury of having all of the options you have. No need to justify your purchases. Since for me it is a enthuisatic hobby situation and not a professional need, I couldn't justify having all those cameras. I just feel if I did have all those cameras it would be a tough choice for me deciding which one to use and I would probably have my favorites, while some would collect dust.
