    I curious to what many of you carry as a point and shoot camera?
    I just recently sold my E-PL1 and decided to wait until the next model comes out. In the meantime I just ordered the Leica D-Lux 5 as my camera for everyday occasions. Just curious to see whats in everybody's Camera bag.

    I've got several that I use. It's either a Yashica T4 Super, Olympus XA2 or a Canon Powershot A640 which I'll also do digital infrared pictures.

    I don't have a pocket big enough to fit my E-P1.

    Does an M9 count?

    Seriously, as above, I haven't carried or used a compact since I got my EP1. And i carry a camera everywhere, all the time. there's still a couple in the house the kids use though.

    My daily carry is a GF1 and 5 lenses (20/1.7, 45/2.8, 8FE, 45-200, PL14-50 f/2.5) in the bottom half of a Tenba mini-messenger

    Isn't that the point of m43?

    I would love to use my E-PL2 for everything, but there are occasions where I don't feel like carrying it around as well. That's why I wanted a nice point and shoot camera.

    Gf1 and 20mm. The camera goes into a small neoprene case to avoid scratches and tucks neatly into a canvas shoulder bag along with my wallet. You can't tell the camera is there.

    You all have some big pockets...... I try to take the gf1, but it's not very pocketable....I bought my wife a Panasonic TZ (fill in a number) 'cause I need zoom more than quality on a pocket camera. The pics aren't great in bad light, but in good light....all cameras are good. Processing can rescue the rest.

    Panasonic ZS3 (sold the LX3 and kept the ZS3). I like the big stabilized zoom, great IQ for a P&S and HD video. It's a great take everywhere camera. I added a Clearviewer to it but it's still very pocketable..

    BTW, just because you carry a bag doesn't mean you're a lady. I carry a messenger bag or a backpack (I think they both qualify as bags) and last time I checked I was no lady. :eek:

    LX5 w/ a wrist strap! And it never ceases to impress me.

    I agree... while the GF1 is ALWAYS in my man-bag, I wouldn't quite consider it pocketable even with the pancakes.

    Sometimes the Panny LX3 and sometimes the Panny TZ5... both are what I would consider barely pocketable.

    I had an S90 that was pocketable, but sold it in favor of an LX5 that really wasn't - a bit too much lens protruding. Now I also have a Ricoh GRD3 that I haven't left the house without recently. Fits in a front pocket, similar size to the S90. Between the X100 and GRD3, I'm really digging these fixed lens, single focal length cameras. Seems the way they can match the lens to the sensor with no compromises for various focal lengths and different angles of light hitting the sensor really allows for some great IQ relative to similar cameras with more flexibility built in. I'm glad to have the m43 gear and various lenses for those times when I want to shoot long or wide, but more and more often I'm just leaving the house with a single fixed lens camera...
