Wow! You have what I want...

Oh Johnny ! NO Point and shoot digital will be remotely like your M6 Biggrin

Oh, I know that, not much is. But the M6 is not digital. Just looking for something small (pocket size) that takes good digital pictures. I'm not looking at investing in a new digital camera system. I have enough money tied up in my three film cameras.

Most Nikon pocket ones are good. However stay away from Nikon J series. There is a lot of buyers remorse when those are bought and customers are unhappy with it (according to the Nikon forums a few months back). Also stay away from that Canon that is waterproof and drop proof. It's the Power Shot D20; it's a funky shape and quite terrible to be honest. My wife was given one by her father and her old cell can take better photos than that thing.

A Canon 60D plus assorted lenses and a Canon S90 as my point and press. The S90 is used far more as it easy to put in your pocket and has almost as much control as the DSLR.

I shoot with a Canon 30D. I just realized last night it's already 8 years old! Unfortunately I dropped it on the rocks a while back and it's not been the same since. Sometimes there's crazy long shutter lag (mostly gone now though) and the focusing seems off sometimes.

I'm now considering either the Canon 60D or the 7D.

I also have a digital P&S, the Nikon CoolPix 995, which is 12 years old and only 3 megapixels. The glass on it is VERY nice, however, and I've been able to publish a few shots from it. One thing I love about it, and the reason I keep it, is that the body twists so that you can angle the screen for easier viewing in tight spots. It also has a spot meter and shoots in macro mode. I use this camera for work quite a bit when I'm in the field either inspecting a existing facility that we'll be upgrading, or inspecting a project after it's been constructed.

Shave Nook? Right. Supposed to be a site for folks who actually shave? Ah. Okay. The beard was from last winter. Gone now.

Beautiful cameras, Rob!

I'm 62 and it seems I've always had a camera since I was a young boy. I got heavily into photography in the 1970s through the 1990s, though I haven't done much lately. I have a closet full of manual-focus film cameras and I still haven't made the shift to digital.

I am left-eyed and I wear glasses. Since the advent of 35mm autofocus SLRs and the stardardization of grouping button controls to the right of the finder, competing for space with the right lens of my glasses, I have had major ergonomic conflict with SLRs, and this has continued into digital.

Current equipment, more or less:

35mm

Minolta SR-T 101
Minolta SR-T 102
Minolta SR-T 201
Minolta X-570 and Autowinder G

28mm f2.8 MC Rokkor
35mm f2.8 MC Rokkor
50mm f1.4 MC Rokkor
50mm f1.7 MD Minolta
58mm f1.4 MC Rokkor
85mm f1.7 MD Rokkor
100mm f2.5 MC Rokkor
135mm f2.8 MD Rokkor
200mm f4.0 MD Minolta

Minolta Spotmeter F
Minolta Autometer III


Pentax Spotmatic II

28mm f3.5 SMC Takumar
50mm f1.4 SMC Takumar
135mm f2.5 SMC Takumar

Canonet GIII QL17

Extensive Accessories


Medium Format (120/220 film)
(All TLRs - Twin Lens Reflexes)

Minolta Autocord CdS III
Minolta Autcord I
Rolleiflex T
Yashicamat EM
Yashica D

I have extensive Bayonet 1 accessories that fit all of these cameras.
My favorite TLR is the Minolta Autocord CdS III, which has an outstanding semi-spot/zone meter on it. I don't bother to use the handheld meters with this one, as it just isn't necessary. The Tessar-type lens on the Minoltas is at least as good as the Zeiss Tessar itself, in terms of sharpness, contrast, and color fidelity.

Mamiya RB67 6x7cm SLR camera
WLF (waist-level finder)
Eye-Level Prism Finder
50mm f4.5 lens
90 mm f3.5 lens
180 mm f4.5 lens
3 x 120 film backs

I had a Mamiya C330f TLR with the 80mm and 180mm lenses and numerous Mamiya accessories. I lent it to a cousin and it was damaged in an accident. My cousin swapped me his Mamiya RB67 outfit for it, but I miss the C330f. We now live in different states, but I hope to get the C330f back, get it repaired, and get damaged pieces (like the waist-level finder and a lens hood) replaced. I might also try to add a couple of lenses, such as the 55mm wide angle and the 135mm short tele.

I mostly shoot professional slide film.

hehe. the beard can be regrown. but the Mrs. would not be happy.

Murray, some nice and extensive kit you have there.

I don't guess my post was terribly helpful to the OP's original question about what to buy at a particular price point. sorry about that.

Johnny, a leica store is dangerous. be careful. if you are anywhere near NYC, however, and visit the Leica Gallery store downtown, ask for my buddy Carl.

I have a M6 and that is all the Leica I can afford. That, my Hassy, and Nikon keep me broke enough. Have not stepped into the digital world yet. All of my digital pictures are taken with my cheap cellphone camera.

When I still take pictures, here is what I use.

An M6 is all anyone really needs for most photography.
