Reverting to P&S??

12 September 2011 - 02:06 PM

Perhaps this has been discussed before, but I haven't been on this board in many years. Up until 2005-7 or so was diving a lot, taking photos with a 5050 then a Canon D-Reb. Did some other things, got sick, yada yada, and just came back from a N, Channel Islands dive trip, first UW shots I've taken in over 4 years. In addition to rusting of skills, I find the complexity of the DSLR to be overwhelming (and frankly, I was as a general rule happier with my 5050 shots than my D Reb shots).

Thinking of reverting to a P&S, perhaps a housed G12, rather than continuing with my 6 MP dinosaur, or upgrading at a $3-5K price tag to a new camera body and housing.

Anyone else taken this route and have any advice and/or regrets?
