I've got an almost never used Ricoh GX200. I usually take my D700 everywhere, though a Fujifilm XE1 is in my sights, once SWMBO is persuaded.

It depends:

- Sony RX100 when size really matters (it is my always in my bag camera),
- Sigma DP2m when there is plenty of light and image quality is important,
- Nikon V2 when something moves.

Cheers,
Bernard

Hi,

For me, the alternative is a small camera I can put in my pocket. It needs to have zoom.

A small camera with interchangable lens is interesting. An up to date version of Leica could be a real alternative. What I see is is:

- EVF built in
- Live view at actual pixels anywhere in the image
- A decent selection of lenses including zooms

My alternate camera right now is a Hasselblad 555 ELD with a P45+ digital back, I guess I go in the other direction?

Best regards
Erik

The OM-D EM5 is my main camera. I also just picked up an X-E1 for M-mount lens use. Both systems meet my needs & desires c. 2013: small, light, fine & dandy IQ, fun to use.

The only SLRs I use these days are of the film variety. Primarily a Contax Aria and a Pentax MX...both also small & light.

Seriously, I looked at M43, but I'm not sure that everthing is "all together" yet.  A few more generations will improve them a lot I think.

The only advantage for me at present that M43 has is size.

My small camera has become my most frequently used camera.  It is an Olympus OM-D with a small lens (like the 12mm f/2).  For me the infrequent thing is to carry the full-sized SLR.  I also have an Olympus TG-2 tough series camera for boating. I have thought about getting an E-PL5 for a smaller knock-around camera, but the OM-D is really quite compact with a small prime on it.

The stats are quite interesting.  With 70 voters (a pretty decent sample) 43% are carrying a mirrorless camera as their small backup/pocketable. 

Reminds me of some of Thom Hogan's recent discussion of mirrorless marketing trends.  It seems that the people buying them are camera enthusiasts and pros, not the general consumer population.

That makes sense to me, because the quailty of run of the mill compacts is so good these days, you only really need to to mirrorless if you are looking for real fast lenses or want to print large (more likely to be the case with the enthusiast or pro), and for that you pay a significant price premium over the compact.

Mirrorless users now make up 60% of respondents.  If mirrorless cameras continue to see lackluster sales (particularly in the US), we may find our choices in this space substantially diminished.  That could be a problem in a year or three. ...but then again, the advent of cheap video cameras and camera phones will kill still photography before the decade is over, so we will be stuck forever using the same camera we have today....haha.

I used the same Hassy and Horseman cameras and lenses for decades, and I'm still on the 1DsIII and 5DII.  Quite frankly after riding the upgrade digital train starting with a D100 and then the original 1Ds, I'm quite happy to see the train sitting on the siding for a few years or more.

None of the above.

The SLR (with full-sized lenses) is my small camera.

My big camera is a Linhof 617 and a technical field camera with movements.

Mind you, I shoot most things with the SLR, because it's so much more convenient, and you can get better image quality than the large cameras by stitching, if the subject allows you to.

... has anyone ever heard of a camera with the letter Y in it's name?

And here's an early one:

The original Hawk-eye cameras were made by the Boston Camera Co., which was taken over by Blair Camera Co. in 1890, in turn taken over by Eastman Kodak in 1899. This is the reason why there's no Hawk-eye No. 1 in the Kodak list: that camera, a 45 inch plate camera, was made by the original company. (http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Hawk-eye_No._2)

I had the same problem with how to vote for my Canon G1X.  It is very compact for what it is, especially if you take into account sensor size and lens speed, yet when you think of what most people mean by compact, it doesn't really fit.  Same for anything else with a big sensor and fixed lens: Leica X1/2/Vario (latter not remotely compact); Sigma DP series; Fuji X100.

True.  But on this forum, I don't think a lot of people are carrying around little P&S automatics as a matter of course.  So, in that context, I figured the Compact category fit.

X100 but it is mostly confined to travel and zone focused street duties.

I switch from a dslr only as last resort which is usually because a dslr is inappropriate in the situation, mirorless camera just are not there yet in terms of speed and ease of use. If a picture is worth taking it is usually also worth the effort to doing it on the highest quality camera I own too.

I pretty much agree with Markt.  i want good, printable images in a variety of conditions (including low light) from an inconspicuous camera that's small enough so it doesn't get left behind.  tried Panasonic 4/3 with collapsing zoom which blurred between about 1/30 and 1/200.  just sent back EOS M after Canon announced the wide zoom is not for US and B@H put the Canon lens adapter on special order - looks like Canon is giving up on mirrorless in the US without out even attempting to sell a competitive camera supported by a selection of lenses (if they re-consider, so will I as i would love to have a Canon mirrorless as a backup).

so while i wait to see what the next generation brings i'll continue to enjoy my remarkable Sony RX100

Sony Nex 6 w/16-50. The more I use it, the more I like it. It's a giant in functionality and IQ in relation to its size.

A Canon S90 was my previous 'to hand' camera, but I've just bought a RX100 instead.

Fujifilm X-Pro1 with their 14mm f/2.8, for street photography only. Haven't come to any definite conclusions as to how much I like it. It's may be just a temporary fill-in until my Leica 240 arrives (who knows when!)

X-Pro 1 with the original 3 fixed focal length lenses, and otherwise the iPhone 4s.

Still pondering if it is worth replacing my Canon G10 with a newer P&S, though, as it is smaller than my Fujifilm kit.

I went for a Sony, Fuji or Olympus today. I came back with a CoolPix A. Really really nice. What did it for me was the ease of use, excellent quality and above all. It actually does fit in my backpocket!!

pretty sure I will get a DP2M or/and DP3M too :)

I use a Canon s100.  Very nice camera for the cost and the size.  It is a compromise in many areas over my Canon 7d, but that is expected because of, well...the cost and the size.

Canon Powershot A720.

But then my main camera is a MILC, and my SLRs eat film.

I personally use either my phone (Galaxy Note II) or the Canon Powershot G15.

Depends on the quality of shot I want and who has it. If it's just a basic shot, to document my travel, I will use my phone. If it's a little dark or a need more quality, I will use my G15. If I am alone, I have one on each hip.

If my girlfriend goes with me, she uses the G15, and I have my phone.
