My Canon G7 died after over 3 years of trouble-free service.
I need a new camera.
I love the features of an advanced P&S such as G7 but I am not too thrilled with a new Canon G11 as a replacement for my G7. Just not too impressive as far as the features(same stuff and nothing new, plus same resolution as my G7) and does not seem to be a decent upgrade.
Since I haven't kept up with digital camera market, what do you guys recommend? I want something nice with advanced features because I like to set the apperture I want and sync a flash with it if it's indoors and just use the lens in its sweet spot apperture wise.
Without getting into brand wars such as Canon vs Nikon, among the new advanced P&S cameras(hot shoe is nice to have) or an entry level DSLR, what are the winners?
I have a Canon EX flash and a Canon 50mm prime lens, but I do not care if I have to buy this for a different brand of camera as long as it's worth it image quality wise.
Appreciate the advice and happy holidays to all!
