We've been very fortunate to take a few trips to gorgeous places. Using my SD880is, we've been able to take some great pictures of these great parks. We've also taken thousands of "eh" pictures.
Using CHDK, I've gained significant control over this camera, which is helpful, but options are buried under a number of clicks. The manual control helps improve some of the pictures. But, I feel like I'm not getting the image quality from this camera I see from other cameras.
I'm not ready to step up to a DSLR (weight, cost, inexperience, etc.), so I've been looking at the higher-end compacts. I love the Canons (especially because we can hack using CHDK), so I've basically narrowed it down to the G12 and S95.
We don't currently take many low-light shots because they are incredibly noisy with my current camera. If I had a camera that deals with low-light better, I think I'd take more of these shots. Most of the shots we take are landscape shots. Zoom is less important to me.
Does anyone have an opinion between these two? I've looked through flickr and can't really see much difference between the two (they appear to share the same sensor?). Thanks!
