Heading off to Japan next week. In the haste of getting ready to leave, I decided I'd like to have a small-ish point and shoot to take with me when I'm out and about.
Doesn't need to be pocket-sized, as I'll be keeping it in a messenger bag. Not interested in a DSLR, or anything that has that size/look to it.
Currently looking at the Canon Powershot G1X.

::What about making ourselves happy? The picture painted here is that we don't really matter, our clients do and therefore we are slaves?.
Speaking personally, my happiness is implied. if I'm not enjoying what I'm doing (in general), I'd begin to question why I got into it in the first place. My point was that I don't believe people get into this field simply to service a client... surely it's more than that.
I don't see the fact that you can only count them on hand as a bad thing; you've identified a goal. Don't settle—you'll burn out.
