Info on compact cameras sought (UK)
I use a camera for various things but need to carry it whilst cycling.
I pulled the trusty Finepix FII out the box yesterday to find the screen was gubbed - somehow it must have received a blow since last I used it but I don't know how. I'm assuming it will cost more to repair than the price I paid for it and I could use more zoom in any case so it looks like a new camera for me.
I was never convinced that the colour rendition was what it should have been anyway, I've seen much better from "simpler" cameras.
A bridge type is too bulky for cycling with in my opinion so I want another compact with at least 10x zoom (though could take less if that compromises other facets), dial controls (I always found shuffling through menus frustrating) and, most importantly, a viewfinder. I'm not fixated on pixel numbers. I got the Finepix as it had the reputation (not entirely deserved) of good shutter lag so that's a requirement too.
Can anyone give me a starter for ten before I start searching the net? Any advice and experience would be appreciated.
Small, quality compact camera
I to am looking to replace my F200EXR with something newer and more advanced with improved image quality, performance, ease of use etc ;)
Currently there are many options and now a FujiF800EXR that shoots RAW, Sony RX100, Panasonic LX7, Olympus XZ-1, Samsung EX2F,canon S100, Fuji X10.......etc.:cool:
Really depends on your budget and what features you consider important, your style of photography and so on.:)
All I can say is research, research, research and try out as many as you can :D
