    I have a friend who needs a P&S recommendation. He travels for business and he wants something he can pull out of his suit jacket and snap a photo. He has a website and also needs to make videos of 30 seconds max. There's always a trade off and it's more important for him to have good photos than good video. He makes decent money so cost is not much of a factor.

    Please give me your two cents if you have purchased a P&S recently or recommended one to somebody else. Thanks OTAP!

    G10 has nasty high ISO, go look at LX3's high ISO (while not upto par with dSLR's) is relatively clean. I have no idea why OTAP sackrides G series when it comes to P&S. And LX3 will easily fit in your pocket too.
