I have a Sony a300 that works just fine but I live in California and want my camera everywhere! Taking a small backpack everywhere is a little tough sometimes. I run and hike a lot and need something to fit in my camelback backpack!
Price range $600 for an ILC
price range $300 for a small compact
Anything that wont get me frsutrated taking with me everywhere instead of my DSLR.
I have been looking at sony nex 3 and 5 and the nikon J1.
Also the Canon sx230,Panasonic - Lumix ZS8,
Thanks in advance.
