All I've Got Is a Photograph

I am currently in the market for a new camera. Primarily because I want to have a really good piece of equipment when I go to Ireland in October, because I plan on taking millions of photographs of the scenery (including cute Irish boys) while I'm there.

I currently have a Canon A20, and while it works just fine and takes decent shots, I want MORE.

So I've narrowed my choices down to two, and I'm remaining brand loyal to my beloved Canon - the A95 and the G6.

The G6 is definitely the "better" camera in almost every way (megapixels, functionality), but it's also $200 more than the A95 (although still within my price range). My only hesitation is that I'm just not sure I need that much camera. I like being able to play with settings and tweak things - I'm not content with just a point-and-click camera - but I'm also not a professional by any means.

In other words, I like the option of fully manual control of the camera, but honestly, I'm not sure how often I'd use it.

I need someone to sway me one way or the other.

Get the A95. More practical for your needs, and also smaller and lighter! Small and light are always big selling points for me when it comes to electronic equipment that I am going to have to cart around.

My next digital camera will fit in an altoids tin. Period.
