Sony Cybershot DSC-V1 was unfortunately lost by me. It was a pretty big blow because I had invested quite a bit of money on it and although it served a good 4 years, I didn't exactly prepare to replace it. I am leaning towards a P&S because of the size. One thing I didn't like about the camera is the bulk of it. There was no comfortable way of carrying it without using a bag of some sort. (I'm the type of guy who likes to go around with a couple of cards and a money clip. I don't like bulk and I don't like bags.) Am I kidding myself to think that a P&S can give me some decent shots of badminton action? I'm also looking at other options such as the Canon S5 and G7. I'm not ready to venture into the world of DSLR's, so these are about as high as I'm willing to go. I really like the Canon S5 because of it's zoom and flip screen. The negative is that there is absolutely no chance I can get by without having to purchase an extra P&S. Hoping you guys could help me out with a tough decision as you guys have done in the past.
