Oh, I can hear the laughter of your overpriced P&S that isn't half as capable as an old G12. Like flash.
you mean sync speed?
to be honest i could not care less on a P&S and i guess that applies to 90% of the customers who will buy this camera.
i don´t have an external flash with me all the time.
and when i know that i will shoot flash i sure don´t grab one of my P&S.
by the way:
size is 116.4x74x66.2mm
and you can shoot selfies and look at the display (if you have too) the swivel display allows it.
