to start off, I have a canon eos rebel xs with a standard 18-55 lens and a 75-300 lens. I was planning on taking it but think it is prudent to take a nice camera i can fit in my pocket and not always lug around the eos and my gun. i have been reading posts and researching and have narrowed it down to a couple but other choices are welcome. sony dsc-rx100 gen 1 Sony DSC-HX50V My questions are would the hx50 be good choice and eliminate the need to take the eos? is the rx100 worth the extra $250? I like the 1" sensor but zoom is limited. This will more than likely be my only chance to go to Africa ( I know everyone says i will go again but it won't be in my budget) so my pictures will have to last me a lifetime. I also want to use them to capture some video so i don't have to take a camcorder. thanks in advance for your input.
