Dear all, after searching for the features one should look for in any point and shoot camera, i finally could make a list of 10 features which are as under:
lol... with your list of desires.... forget the point and shoot camera and stick with your DSLR. The typical shooter that grabs a point and shoot wont be looking for a high FPS, your not going to grab a p/s for a sports game. RAW is nice but not expected in most p/s cameras. Image stabilization.... Stick with your DSLR
Hi; check out the Leica X1 or X2. Point and Shoot camera with the power of a DSLR. Here a brief description:
Leica Camera AG presents a new generation of Leica digital cameras--the Leica X1. The Leica X1, made in Germany, is equipped with a CMOS sensor in APS-C format, similar to those used in semi-professional DSLR cameras. Together with an all-purpose Leica Elmarit 1:2.8/24 mm lens, the particularly large sensor for this class of camera offers outstanding picture quality that need not fear comparisons with professional cameras. In addition to its technical specifications and a broad spectrum of setting options ranging from manual operation to automatic functions, the Leica X1 is an ideal companion for quality-conscious and creative photographers. The camera’s compact form makes it a constant companion for spontaneously capturing the unique moments in life.
The X1 features a 12.2-megapixel CMOS image sensor; as each individual pixel has a large sensor area and receives more light, this guarantees low noise levels, a high dynamic range and accurate color differentiation. The crop factor of the sensor is 1.5 in comparison with 35-mm film format, meaning that the fixed-mount Leica Elmarit 1:2.8/24 mm lens of the Leica X1 is transformed into a universal reportage lens with an effective (35-mm equivalent) focal length of 36 millimeters. This is a true classic among prime lenses and has captured innumerable iconic images.
