so you guys be the judge yourselves!Given the name "Serious Compacts", there has always been a question as to the scope of this site. What exactly is a "compact"?
Answer: If a camera appeals to you because its size is smaller than some other type of kit, then it is "compact" enough for us.
Examples of gear which fit in here at SeriousCompacts.com:
All mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (EVIL, ILC, digital rangefinder, etc), including Sony NEX, Micro Four Thirds, Samsung NX, and Leica M
All large sensor, fixed-lens cameras, eg Leica X1 and Sigma DP1
All small sensor (less than 1" sensor) cameras, eg Panasonic LX3, Ricoh GRD, and Canon G11
Small DSLR cameras (you decide whether it is small enough to be called "small")
If you're wondering whether your camera qualifies for discussion here at Serious Compacts, it almost certainly does .
Of course! My K200D and K-5 are small by comparison with your D300 or most Nikons in fact. They are both around the same size as the entry level Canikons. I still feel like a fraud when I use DSLR shots for challenges like thisJust to re-echo "compact is in the eye of the beholder" as laid down by Amin. Obviously not all dslrs qualify.
