Dek: 
The Canon G10 is the perfect blend between a pocket-sized point-and-shoot and manual dSLR beast. It’s small enough to fit into a jacket pocket but still substantial enough to feel and shoot like a real camera. And here's a good camera pouch for carrying it, too.

The Canon G10 is not a replacement for a quality dSLR. But if size is an issue when travelling or on the hill the G10 is the next best thing. It’s the perfect blend between a pocket-sized point-and-shoot and manual dSLR beast. It’s small enough to fit into a jacket pocket but still substantial enough to feel and shoot like a real camera. For stills, landscapes, and macro shots the G10 can hold its own with anything out there. At 14.7 megapixels, and a 28-mm wide-angle lens, you have the resolution to land a spread photo in your favorite magazine and it shoots RAW. It has full manual controls and a built in ND filter. Drawbacks are that images get a bit noisy at higher ISO. Shooting ski action takes a lot of practice to nail consistently but it is possible. (Using the viewfinder is key.) It doesn’t shoot HD video and the rapid fire is slow when shooting RAW. It also can’t take an exposure longer than 15 seconds. I keep it in a Lowepro Rezo 20 camera pouch that attaches to my backpack waist belt for quick access and very little movement while skiing. [$499.99; usa.canon.com; $16.99; lowpro.com]  —Mark Lesh
