"The best P&S I've owned is the P100"4.5 starson by Pssequimages
Pros: Weight--speed of capture~zoom~variable position lcd screen OR viewfinder overcomes problems composing your photo~performance in low light situations~incredible range of shooting modes~panorama assist-smart portrait technology~sport (burst) feature
Cons: Can't capture camera raw & no hotshoe. I will always have my Nikon D200 SLR at the ready, but this little puppy sometimes outperforms it. I have NOT used the movie capture feature yet, but am impressed with all other attributes of the Nikon P100.
Summary: The extreme light weight of the camera challenges the photographer's ability to hold the camera still. The vibration reduction feature, however, is superb and I have turned out very few unusable images due to camera shake. I like using the fine settings, and have been pleased with the flexibility and the ease of use of the P100. The new mirrorless capture technology is incredible in this camera. I bought this camera for someone else ---but kept it for myself when I saw how it rivaled other cameras I have. I love it!
