Pro digicams (or compact prosumer cameras) are the kind of camera a serious photographer looks for when they don't want a bulky DSLR. If you're not interested in carrying around a big DSLR bag but still want maximum photographic control and good image quality in a pocketable form - the pro digicam is appealing. Sporting features like raw capture and manual control as well as better thought out physical controls to enhance the utility of the various manual modes.
