Well... if you're referring to a DSLR - none of them are particularly small. Have you gone to the store and held them? Don't get to deterred by their size, the are lots of options out there that help with that - things like the black rapid and some really inventive bags and purses that are designed for holding camreas. Also, have a look at Gordon's guide below:

There are lots of choices in the smaller sized camera market right now, and no single one is "best", only "best suited to your particular needs". So it would help if you clarified what you mean by semi-professional (to start: what's your budget?) and/or what you plan to take pictures of. i.e. wildlilfe, landscapes, macro (close-ups of food, insects, jewelry, etc.), indoor family gatherings, outdoor/daylight sports, indoor/night sports, etc.

But a short list off the top of my head: Nikon V1/J1, Canon G1X, Panasonic GX1, Olympus E-M5, Sony NEX-5n.
