For a time I was using the Fuji F31fd, which provided some great results for being a point-and-shoot compact. http://www.flickr.com/photos/ygx/2409826096/ Since then I've been trying to find something that will meet a particular set of requirements, mostly for low light and concerts. I know I can never get DSLR quality from a compact, but I want to get as close as possible without breaking the bank or getting so close to the price of an entry level DSLR that I start wondering why I'm bothering. The latest one I'm trying is the Olympus XZ-1. Its fast f/1.8-f/2.5 lens is the main selling point. I did briefly try out the Canon S100, but the lens's three stop variable aperture was brutal. At least with the Olympus, the one-stop difference can be reasonably compensated for in Lightroom. I'm itching to use it in a low light environment, like a concert. So far the macro mode is pretty nice.
