    The S3 offers some manual controls, a bunch of auto settings and a zoom that you won't get on a DSLR for under several thousand bucks. I don't know that the picture quality is that different unless...

    I have a Canon S3 IS ultra zoom and have been thinking about going to dslr. My thoughts would be thus:

    1) For simple ease of use, the P&S dominates.

    Couple things that have worked for me:

    1) Put the camera close to the tank

    Which ones to keep?

    So... with my P&S, I take a ton of pictures. I'm not an artist when it comes to photography (and I don't mean that as a slight, I really have no experience as I do in music or writing), so I...

    Zoom lenses in dslr vs P&S
