I plan to buy a secondary camera thats easier to carry around. At the moment this post is for my reference. Just in case, if this note helps anyone else in deciding what they would want to buy. I am comparing compact cameras which fit my need. Primarily a sub $400 camera as on date. This note might not be relevant at all in future date.
I have this question on stackexchange. You can find opinion of other folks there.
