I've been trying to read up on a lot of the threads regarding camera purchases but I don't feel like they've adequately answered my questions so I figured i'd put up one more. I'm looking to move up from my P/S camera (SD800 IS) and smartphone and get something with significantly better image quality. I recognize that the P/S is fine under ideal lighting conditions but it seems to generally suck in low-light situations, macro shots etc. I'll be going on a few scenic trips this year so I was thinking of moving up to a mirrorless or SLR camera with the following criteria: 1) Great for vacation photography: Mostly using it for Landscape (urban and nature), pics with GF/family against whatever background, evening/night/low light scenic shots. Some macro photography. Basically the standard stuff people would use cameras for on most vacations. 2) Will not be using a bazillion Lenses: I'm a realist. I don't see myself lugging along a bunch of lenses with me on any trip and swapping them in and out. I think i'll be using one lens setup for probably 90-100% of my pictures unless there's a really compelling reason to switch. 3) Not insanely bulky: Not expecting a pocketable camera but, at the same time, I don't want like a full frame monster of a machine. Something I can walk around with for miles comfortably (i'm big on walking places during vacay) and that's fairly innocuous. That's why I was thinking a mirrorless or a smaller SLR. 4) Price: Was thinking in the $500-$600 or less (less is always better). I'm willing to consider any brand. 5) Ability to "grow" into it a little: For the money I'm looking to spend, I'd rather not have a completely dumb camera. I'd like something with which I can take great pics out of the box but will then eventually try to figure out some of the more basic tricks for better photography. I'm never going to be a photoshop/perfect shot/touch up kinda guy. Just want to take some good pics is all. 6) Decent video: Ability to record decent quality 1080p video would be great. If you've read this far, any thoughts on which camera system I should invest in would be greatly appreciated. This camera will be with me for the long haul so i'd like something that will work really well for 90-100% of my vacation needs without being overly complicated or bulky and will provide just enough functionality so I can mess around with different options in the future.
