    I have had the cannon for well over a year now and its done everything that I expected, its a cracking little camera.

    The P7100 looks very good but the screen does not swivel which is a shame.

    It's a shame the screen on the P7100 doesn't swivel, but the zoom end of the lens has a longer reach than the G12, 200mm as against 140mm (35mm equiv). And I already have a wireless remote that will work with the P7100.

    There isn't a great deal to choose between the Canon G12 and the Nikon P7100, but weighing up all the pros and cons of each I've ordered the Nikon.

    I had a Canon G11 and there is no doubt it's a first class camera that took some terrific shots, so it wasn't an easy decision to go for the P7100.

    Question Re: Compact Cameras

    Has anyone had much experience with the waterproof compacts?. I have been considering the sony version. I try to travel light when fishing and my Nikon DSLR is to big and too nice to risk using when wading.

    I have the p7000 Graham and I am delighted with it. I don't use RAW so the slow 5 second time period for processing is not noticed. I had not noticed that the viewing screen does not swivel on the p7100.

    When the price comes tumbling down (it's at a penny short of £500.00) I will probably order a p7100.

    What you will notice with the Nikon is the absence of a delayed action when you press the shutter. It's almost instantaneous. And you can do some wonderful macro photography without having to change lenses. It almost has every feature of a good DSLR less the expense and weight. There is no doubt that the days of the DSLR are numbered.

    I'll wait whilst it drops below £400.00 as it is sure to do in these times of recession.
