    I made the mistake of thinking no-one would seriously consider an SLR a "point and shoot" :errm:

    I used an Olympus Stylus 120 over the summer and was am pretty pleased with the results. I'm not a fan of the lag between shutter press and photo. You press button and it feels like nothing happens. The negatives show that the shutter is tripped right away but it doesn't feel like it at the time. Takes getting used to I guess.

    Thanks, that's handy to know if I ever spot one.

    The definition is becoming so broad you could justify any camera as one, maybe my Pentax 67 qualifies?

    Compared to my Canham 14x17, my RZ67 is a point-n-shoot. It's all relative.
