For the past several years I've been using my iPhone as my camera. Recently I had a business trip to the UK and borrowed a friends Panasonic Lumix. I got some excellent pictures and I enjoyed the zoom capabilities which you can't get out of an iPhone. After doing some research I bought the Sony DSC-HX50/V. This particular model is kind of bulky, but that's mostly due to the 30X optical zoom. I decided it was a fair trade off. I used the Sony for about a week and returned it yesterday. The quality of the indoor pictures was less than my iPhone. The Sony was expensive for a point and shoot, so I had expectations of reasonable quality indoor pictures. The zoom capabilities of the Sony are awesome, but sometimes you need to be able to take indoor pictures with reasonable results. At this point I don't know which camera I'm going to buy. I'd like something with a smaller footprint than the Sony, and I'd be willing to go with a little less zoom. I've been reading the reviews on some of the Canon models, but thought I'd ask here for recommendations. In the mean time I've also been learning Adobe Lightroom, which I'm enjoying. So much more power and options than using iPhoto. I may purchase the license when my 30 day trial expires.
