However, the AW1 would be bigger than my P7000....but I want one and am looking for the other reviews besides the preview at dpreview.com[/QUOTE]
Actually, there isn't much difference in size or weight.
P7000 with lens retracted is 4.5"W x 3.1"H x 1.8"D, 12.7oz.
AW1 with no lens mounted is 4.5"W x 2.9"H x 1.5"D, 11.1oz.
The 11-27.5 kit lens is 2.4"dia. x 2.2"L, 6.5oz.
The P7000 sensor is 7.6mm x 5.7mm = 43 square mm.
The AW1's CX sensor is 13.2mm x 8.8mm = 116 square mm.
The AW1 blows the P7000 away in AF performance and frame rate.

The AW I lens does stick out more than the compact high end P&S types such as the P7000 but the AW1 continues to grow on me.

Additional protective cases (body and lens). I used to think these colors were a gimmick but not so sure now. For example when fishing around a tank bag this could be handy to jolt the mind that I have a camera in there.

No reviews of consequence yet. Here is a Techradar link and there is a mention on CNET.

A couple of shots from my Fuji X100 (mirrorless) on the weekend:











The portraits it takes are where the camera really shines, I'll ask my GF for permission to share them here

Holy Crap that scared me at first - I thought a giant woman was crushing the Australian continent. Whew!

But we would likely enjoy the portraits...

I look forward to more in-depth reviews, it would be nice to have a rugged camera that actually takes good pictures, even better if it can in low light. After being constantly disappointed with P&S I just ended up lugging my DSLR rig with stripped down to single lens.

Can you give any personal feedback on the RAW quality, ISO performance I like to hear your thoughts.

Different Situation

This has been a very interesting thread - thanks to everyone who has contributed.

When I travel I carry a Nikon D50 with 18-55 kit lens in the tank bag and my D300s with various primes and a 70 - 200 f2.8 in the saddle bag. The reason for the D300s is the Pocket Wizard capabilities for remote shooting. The Pocket Wizard can trigger the camera up to 1/4 mile away, but it needs a special socket on the camera to work (the D50 is not PW capable since it does not have the socket). The Pocket Wizard will also trigger remote flashes on any camera with a hot shoe.

I keep the D50 as more of my walk around camera in case anything happens to it.

I would like a smaller camera with the remote capabilities and probably interchangeable lenses. Has anyone run across anything that will do double duty and let me use the Pocket Wizards and let me have a decent sized and priced walk around camera?

Ditto on the PW's

Been looking for the same for a while - am hoping the new FF Sony A7 body will feature a port Pocket Wizards can utilize but haven't seen specs indicating so

I recently picked up an NEX-5 and it fits the bill for me. Relatively compact, charges via USB, and easily fits in even my smallest tank bag.

Looking at all of those ride reports it doesn't sounds sucky to me!

I had a 7D and a bunch of lenses that I got rid of this past summer for a Mirrorless setup. I just never hauled all the gear with me, and I wanted a setup I could take diving without having to spend another $3k for the housing/ports/flashes. I ended up with an Olympus E-PM1 with their underwater housing, flash, tray, some arms, etc. Makes a great little travel camera.

I'm with the llama. I have both a full-on Canon 5DMkIII set up (DSLR) and a Fuji x100s. I've only had the Fuji for a few weeks but I am blown away by it. The Canon is amazing but it's a big hunk of photo. The Fuji is small and easy to operate. IMO - it is the ultimate ADV camera.

Speaking of the X100s, there is a terrific ride report here that features some great photography with the camera

Lifted from the report...
