I carry my Nikon D200 with me almost everywhere. Sometimes I'll bring my Nikon D40 as a backup. Even though it can be a pain lugging around a DSLR and a few lens, I still don't think it's worth spending $500 for an advanced compact camera when you already have a reliable DSLR.

My dream point & shoot would have a magnesium allow body, at least a 20x optical zoom & the abilty to shoot jpeg andAdobe DNG raw.

I've gone through a lot of 'pocket' cameras, over the years, and they always seem to have a deal breaker, until I found the Canon G10. I have it in my briefcase, and use it for training sessions - shooting at 640 X 480, then go to 15MB RAW files while walking the gardens, parks, and landscapes of the places I visit. No deal breakers, and I have had it almost a year now. I've even shot some video - quite impressive!

I like my Nikon D60 and I'm still learning. I like the Nikon products so I chose the Nikon P6000 because I wanted a more advanced P&S that had camera raw capability that I could carry in my purse. I love the camera but I really hate the user manual that comes with it.

I began with the Canon G-2, progressed to the G-7, to the G-10. I think this is the best compact camera series-I have obtained images that rival those taken with my Canon 50D. I would vote for the Canon G11.

Here are a few tips on shoes for women;Tip number 1: how to make flats look glamorous?Many women have taken an oath that they are going to wear only flats while some think that their wardrobe does not need a pair of flats. This mindset depends mainly on how tall the woman is but the truth is that you can wear anything irrespective of your height. One must have at least one pair of basic flats in the wardrobe. Women also think that high-heeled shoes are trendier than their flat counterparts but this is not true. If you wear your flats correctly and match it with the right outfit then your flats will also catch everyone's eye.Flats beat heels because flats provide the sort of comfort that heels can never provide. There are better chances of tripping, falling and spraining your ankle in heels than in flats. Even if you are short you must give your feet a break and wear flats at least once in a while.Tip number 2: which are the best shoes for women that go with cropped pants?There are many styles in cropped pants and they come in different lengths as well. There are many things that should be considered for matching shoes with cropped pants. The shape, the fabric, the shape of your legs, the colour and the length of the pants will decide which shoe is the most appropriate. Among the shoes for women flip-flops are the ones that go with cropped pants. If it is the season of summer then they will give you a very pleasant summery look. You can wear trendy flip-flops with some straps or just plain coloured flip-flops also look chic.Peep toes and heeled pumps are shoes for women that also go with cropped pants. If you want to look stylish and classy then you must go for heeled pumps or peep toes when you wear cropped pants. It is a very feminine and chic look and they will get all the attention on your legs. Other options include wedge sandals, ballet flats, short or tall boots and kitten heels as well.Tip number 3: which shoes for women should you wear to make your large feet appear smaller?Many people are embarrassed by their large feet and to hide their embarrassment think that it is best to keep them confined in sneakers. Some women also have trouble finding the right size or the size they want. If you want to make your feet smaller, then you should wear high heels instead of flats. High heels are not good for your body but they will make your feet look smaller in size.
