Hmmmm... I just saw the D3100, which appears to be much lighter than the standard dslr. I'm wondering if that or a similar model might be a better option for me.
<span id="INSERTION_MARKER">I have lugged around an slr/dslr for almost twenty years now, and while I love the quality of the images, I don't use all the features. <span id="INSERTION_MARKER">
We are leaving for our big vacation in three days and my Nikon D70 has failed again (in the middle of Disneyland, no less). I need to replace it quickly, but I'm wondering if there are compact cameras that have images comparable to dslrs. I use the various auto modes (for closeups, fireworks, sports, etc...) but hardly use manual functions, so that isn't a priority for me. I need a good zoom option and wide angle would be nice.
