If you're hunting a compact camera with a quality that is equivalent to a DSLR camera, then you might consider the Canon PowerShot G16. Moreover, this camera has a smaller size than a DSLR camera, making it easy to carry anywhere.
Canon PowerShot G16 is a compact, advanced point-and-shoot camera featuring a 12.1 megapixel 1/1.7" high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 image processor to produce high quality still imagery and full HD 1080p video with notable low-light quality and sensitivity to ISO 12800.
You can use a pop-up flash unit which is manually activated by sliding a small switch on the top panel just behind it. The G16 retains its standard hotshoe, which can be used to mount an external Speedlite flash.
The G16 has AF speed vastly improved; Increased continuous frames per second (JPEGs at 12.5fps vs 10fps in G15); Solid build and ergonomic, comfortable feel; Excellent f/1.8-2.8 5x optical zoom lens; Advanced photographic features, including PASM dial and RAW capture; Dedicated ISO button; Customizable buttons; Excellent macro mode; 1080p/60fps Full HD video.
