My current setup: 1000D, 18-55, 50/1.8, 580EX, EOS 30
I've been using the DSLR for about 6 months. I realised with the DSLR, I'm shooting for the sake of shooting. I tend to "machine-gun" then thrash well over 95% of my shots.
The weight is also starting to bother me. For casual use, it's just too bothersome.
It's likely due to my lack of skill but I seem to get better shots using a PnS, comparing just out of cam. I'm not that demanding with how the photos turn out but if I have to PS each photo to make it look better than the one taken by a PnS, I might be better off getting a PnS.
I'm planning to replace the DSLR with a compact. I'm intending on keeping the flash so a camera with hotshoe would be good, looking at either G10 or SX 1. The EOS 30 is worth keeping, so I would still have a SLR. I'm more careful with the SLR (cannot afford to waste film) and having more fun with it.
My budget should be able to cover either the G10 or SX 1. I haven't found any really good reviews comparing both cameras. Any comments? Or recommendations?
