Ohhh... Canada

Me at the bottom of Tempest

I recently got back from an ice climbing trip in Canada. I realized I need a better camera. A DSLR will always be too much camera for me to carry around, so what should I get?

Some things I need:

-Ability to shoot RAW
-Relatively compact size
-Durable enough to take anywhere


Some things I want:

-Good image stabilization
-Low noise in low light conditions
-Medium to low price range

I'm really stumped on which camera to get. I have an older version of the Olympus Tough camera right now, but I haven't really needed the waterproof feature and there may be a better solution to my needs.

Any ideas? Leave me a comment and let me know what to get.
