I use my pocket cameras all the time on manual controls. That is the difference between a $99 pocket camera and a $449 S110 pocket camera. You can 99% as much on a G or S line camera as a DSLR then upgrade later when it really matters and keep the G or S as your backup or travel.

I had like 6 S line cameras and a G9 before my first DSLR.



Here is a link to pictures taken with a $499 Canon G12...

So basically I'm still going to have to learn how to use the DSLR controls proficiently if I want these cameras to really shine over lesser P&S cameras then, right?

If that is the case I guess I'll just have to make the time to learn about it more.
