Re: Poll - is a hybrid camera in your future?

And, of course, you wont find much plastic in the construction.
That is interesting about PMA. I have heard similar elsewhere and I wonder how the organizers rubbed the participant/exibitors the wrong way. There is that show in Tokyo...
I was going to ask, what camera you would grab on your way to PMA....a Hybrid? Would it be different for Tokyo?
Autumn's point is interesting, because on a forum such as this we'll probably hear from DSLR owners first and then a few P&S move-ups.
If I do go to PMA next month, I will bring a hybrid, there is no doubt. I would be sending video reports and the ideal camera would be a Panasonic GH1. I probably wouldn't use a GF1 or a Samsung NX10 because they have mono-only sound for video. I have an Olympus Pen E-P2 and this would be my choice if I couldn't lay my hands on a GH1.
