    Digital compact that can serve as a great light meter?

    I need to purchase a new digital compact for the miss's "happy snaps". It should be of reasonably good picture quality, but also light, and compact. I am hoping to kill two birds with one stone, by getting one which also serves as a great light meter.


    Any suggestions of a good model?

    I bought my wife a Nikon compact..we are very under-impressed with it, the shutter lag is woeful ....id look at a canon G12 next time { or something like it}....if you not gonna get something in that range...then most phones do as good a job as the low end compacts these days

    Isn't the Canon S100 with the Digic V processor suppose to be the ducks nut?

    iPhone even has a few light meter applications that aren't too bad

    But any dslr's built in light meter is way better

    My sister went out and got herself a Canon G12 as well. Pretty good camera, I had a whirl at it and it seemed a little complicated at first but I got the hang of it quite quickly.

    So +1 for the G12 here as well

    Also the Canon S95 produces some great shots. A bit older now, but still a good camera that is still available as far as I'm aware! It's small as well but has a stunning screen and all the functions and settings you'd want!

    Decided to "shave" my signature ;]
    Now mostly shoots with: Canon 5D MK3 & Canon 24-70 f/2.8/50mm f/1.8 (also have a 550D with a variety of lenses/goodies and a Sony Nex-5N)
    PP with: Lightroom only, Photoshop is merely a 9-5 work tool for me.

    +1 for the G12. Very nice camera. Maybe a little bulky for the pocket but since the boss carries her handbag everywhere it was not an issue. Great low light capability.
