Are there any good compact cameras that take photos similar to a digital SLR? I love photography but sometimes I just don’t want to take 10 pounds of equipment around.

It’s not exactly compact, but it’s not SLR either—try the canon powershot SX130IS. I love love love the powershot series; I had a powershot S2IS before I invested in a DSLR. They both have a 12x image-stabilized zoom. With mine, the LCD display popped out so you could get some pretty interesting angles. This one also has a vari-angle LCD display, but it’s also twice as expensive. Sadly, I took mine to one too many concerts and it just doesn’t perform like it used to.

If you want reaally compact, I would say that all the good ones are the same—there’s no way you can come close to SLR quality. Just don’t get a Kodak—their compact cameras suck.
