The Canon G series is a step down from SLR, but has taken great pictures and does pretty good movie and continuous stills. It is just a bit on the bulky side for skiing. If its inconvenient, or you don't carry it, you don't get any pictures. That said, everything I have posted here in the past was with the G2.
When I purchased the G6, I was looking for a camera for skiing. I figured,the smaller the better,
so I picked up the wafer-thin sony cybershot.
Two problems: unless you have very steady hands, a tiny camera is hard to steady, & one with out a view finder, IMO, is even harder.
As to bulk, I use to shoot weddings with a Mamiya RZ, w/ a quantum flash, around my neck.
So the G6 is quite small
I have a few pics of yosemite (real nice!) taken with the canon, if only I new how to post pics here. I'm a little better with photos, than with a pc.
