    What do you use as a point and shoot when a dslr is just too big to take in.

    My wifes Nikon D7.

    That was one of the downfalls of buying a "real" camera.. Not being able to take it into certain events.

    Nikon D70, with a 30mm f/1.4. It's the smallest, lightest combo I've got.

    Casio ex-s600.. more for MPEG4 video capabilities and portability than anything. Full size pic quality sucks:hs:

    Casio ex-z55. I like, but needs manual control.

    A75 here. It's nothing fancy but I've been able to take some fantastic shots with it. Its ease of us is what kept me in the Canon line when picking a DSLR.

    which has the best IQ? I was thinking more along the line of a sub compact like the canon sd series. Not so much an A series (since they are hard to fit in pant pockets).

    I don't see the point of a subcompact. If I need 0 space, my phone takes images. If I am going anywhere, I can take a small bag with either the 20d, or 645 in it.

    I don't want to go to a party or game or whatever, get tanked, and risk fucking my main gear up. I'd rather somebody dump beer on a $250 sub compact, than ruin my body and a nice lens.
