This question already has an answer here:
Not very good with photography terminology so please bear with me.
I've been looking at replacing my aging point and shoot (a Lumix FX500) and one specific characteristic I am looking for at the new camera is a wide angle lens -- not super wide to a point the image is distorted on the edges but wider than a standard lens (since I view most of the photos on the screen and not on print, I want to capture more of the scene).
I get the sense that 'pocketable' and wide-angle don't really go well together and I've read mixed reviews of several options out there on the market so I was wondering what sort of characteristics I should be looking at?
Should I perhaps be looking at something a little bit more advanced than a basic point and shoot?
(The secondary characteristics I am looking at are: size (i.e: pocketable) and GPS)
Thanks for the suggestions.
