No Compact Camera for a prosumer? GX200, DP1, G9, SD950 compared

Well, been looking for a high end compact camera. When I was on film, used a Yashica which was compact, but had a great fixed focus lense and excellent quality.

Kind of amazing, this guy travelled around the world twice doing the same dance in different places (hat tip to the fake “Steve Ballmer”:http://fakesteveballmer.blogspot.com/2008/06/i-just-liked-this.html) for this rocking good video. I mainly love the soundtrack. What a great job and what a great adventure. 14 months of travel, 42 countries at “Where the Hell is Matt?”:http://wherethehellismatt.com…
