I am in need of a new "universal service digital camera" since mine gave up the ghost during a recent trip to France.
It needs to be rugged (since I would always carry it with me), give decent quality pictures (for investigation purposes) and not too bulky since it would need to fit either in the bike's glove compartment or in backpack. I've taken a look at low-end professional cameras but, apart from not being able to make the best use of them, they are way too bulky to fit the bill.
I am also ready to consider a digital video camera, if there are any capable of taking single shots and not too bulky.
Given the fact that many of you are well versed in the art of photographic investigation I am turning to you all for advice.

He captured and bound the Moose, he tamed the Golden Horse. Still there remained one final task: hunt for the Bird from the Stream of Death"
