    I have an EOS 10D, but I'm looking for a compact digital camera to use
    when it's not practical to carry a great lump around.

    I'd like something very small; not too worried about much of a zoom,
    but 3 or 4x optical would be nice; around 4-5mpixel.

    In particular, I don't want any significant shutter lag, and I want
    something which reproduces colours accurately. My previous experience
    with compact digital cameras has included cameras which render skin
    tones very grey or pink. I don't know whether cameras like this are
    still around!

    There are plenty of cameras out there which fit my basic requirements,
    but without trying them all out (which is sometimes hard), it's more
    difficult to find out which ones can accurately reproduce colours.

    Thanks for any recommendations.

  2. Check out the Imaging Resource. They have many, many sample images uploaded
    and you can compare what you'll get to your 10D, which is one of the

    The guy who runs the site does a great job, IMHO, to provide a comprehensive
    review of a lot of different cameras.

    Just choose the "Compare sample images" option from the menu on the left to
    see samples, or choose a camera to see the review (usually includes shutter
    lag time tests, both in full-autofocus and pre-focus modes). He also
    commonly includes power-consumption tests when can run them.

    I used the site 2 years ago when I bought my Olympus C3020 and his analysis
    seemed right on for my camera.

    Good luck.
