I've been a very keen users of DSLR's for a little while now, but recently I went hiking and decided, on a whim, to go light and take my 6 year old compact Nikon S10, approx 300gms, instead of my DSLR, approx 1.2kg. I found my compact quite useable and although the photos aren't aps-c quality, I was glad to have the convenience and flexibility of my S10. Although it's 6 years old, it put up a pretty good show.
It's got quite a few compact camera short comings, like slow focus, slow turn on/off, and slight distortion at wide angle, but still not too shabby.
I know there's many people who move "upwards", from compact, to maybe mega zoom, to DSLR, and maybe "back" to mirrorless, but I'm wondering- have there been any people who have gone from DSLR to compact again? I mean more or less for good, not just one off?
