Re: Camera Advice, Please?

In the end, I've gone with a camera that is bigger than I hoped (but I wasn't going to get all my wishes in a compact...I knew that). I've gotten a Sony HX300, with more zoom than I imagine I'll need (50x), 20Mp and Zeiss lenses. It's one of those "bridge" cameras; looks like a DSLR but lens doesn't change and viewfinder is not optical, but electronic. In fact, it's a miniature of the LCD, viewed through an eyepiece...but that's fine when the sun is too bright. AND, the LCD pulls away from...

Travelling as light as you do it would be an awful burden Rob. I found a lovely bargain today. A Samsung ST 72 camera. It has wifi to view the pix on my TV and its so tiny that I could tuck it into my sock. $50 US and brand new ! Its been in the stores for over a year. So its reduced ! Getting to be a collector I'm afraid ! Sounds just like your "Cup of Tea" though Rob

A few dealers are selling it even cheaper, but the guy who was selling for $319 was doing that by taking out the included battery and AC connector and selling them separately. When I heard that I didn't even ask the total...don't do business that way.

PHeymont- I'm anxious to see the photos with your camera! And that price is not bad for all you get.

Three-year later follow-up on my original camera-quest. Still happy with the Sony despite its size, but never made a complete switchover: there are just some times when you have to have something that's pocket size. So, sometimes that's my Samsung S7 phone, but especially on the road, it's a camera that fit ALL of my original specs. It's the Panasonic Lumix ZS-50 (TZ50 outside the US). Eye-viewfinder (electronic), built-in WiFi to link to phones, 30x optical zoom and the Leica lenses. I've...

I use the Lumix as my "on the hip at all times" camera as well. Pretty pleased with it. A still use my Canon SLR when lighting and convenience make it feasible to.

Might this camera work? It doesn't have as much zoom as you're used to but has other useful features. Try the link.

I heard that it's predecessor the Canon G15 has all you could wish for. And as its not hot off the press anymore - its a lot more affordable now. Photo's and zoom are wonderful !

Camera Advice, Please?

My current carry-everywhere camera is a Nikon S9400 that is always on my belt; I've also always been happy with the Panasonic Lumix TS/TZ series. The Nikon is 18.1 megapixels with 18x zoom. BUT, I find myself lacking a few items that I'd like to...

Wise advice indeed. You may notice that Brits don't like used towels being left on the floor. When I'm working in someone's home they will always ask first - before bringing a pet into the room. Maybe some people have the same dislike of little brats too ! It's all about respecting your hosts or guests feelings. Good manners.
