Camera advice time. I’m looking to buy a reasonably high quality point and shoot camera. With three small kids to take whenever we go on holidays or day trips, I’ve accepted that it’s impractical and downright difficult to lug around my DSLR and favourite lenses. Since my twin boys were born I haven’t even used it and have been relying on my iPhone for capturing memories, which just doesn’t cut it for me.
So I want something light fast and simple, but it can take great quality portrait shots of my kids as they play, and scenes when we travel. I’ve been doing a tonne of online research and I’m leaning towards one of the following four compacts:
Sony Cybershot RX100 (five models now, III looks in the right price range for what I want)
Panasonic LUMIX LX100
Canon Powershot G5 X
These are all pretty similar in specs. Also, for a much larger zoom:
Panasonic LUMIX TZ100/ZS100/TX1
Has anyone had any experience with these cameras, and can recommend one over the others? I’d love a Fujifilm X100F fixed lens but it’s just too far out of my price range.
