Hi, I'm thinking about getting a decent P&S for those times when I need quick access to a camera or my DSLR is not handy. The criteria I "think" would be valuable is:
1. Flat enought to fit in a shirt pocket or clip to a belt like a cell phone. I have a Sony DSC-H1 (12X zoom) but it won't fit in a pocket.
2. Shoots RAW.
3. Has a wide zoom range.
4. A good 'all around' camera to address the unexpected opportunities.
The problem is getting the first three in the same camera. The few pocket sized cameras I've seen that shoot RAW usually have a fairly narrow zoom. If I need to sacrifice, what works best in your experience, RAW and crop or JPG and zoom? Which camera would you recommended and why?
Thank you for considering this issue.
