Lightest P&S with tilt/swivel LCD? on 08/13/2009 09:19:16 MDT Print View

I have and love a Canon A620 but it's on the heavy side. It seems after the 650 they have dropped the tilt/swivel LCD for the most part. I'll never buy another camera for me without that feature. What is the lightest camera that has this AND full manual mode? I'm assuming at this point I'll get a second 600 series Canon and deal with the weight. The A620 does fit OK in my hip belt pocket.

Bump. Anything new out there yet with tilt/swivel (eg, Canon's vari-angle) LCD and full manual mode that is < 12 oz with battery?

That sure comes close. It does look like a very nice camera though it's almost 13 oz without the battery and I'd lose a fair amount of zoom (72mm vs 140), which I do use, but I'd gain a lot of wide angle (24 vs 35) and a faster lens overall. It would still fit in my hipbelt pocket. Seems I'd have to take several batteries or a solar charger so I wouldn't gain any weight over my A620 (w/ 4 extra AAs). How much does the SLB-11A weigh? I find anywhere from 18-48 grams on various sites.
