I looking for a compact camera so as my Father doesnít have to lug his heavy DSLR & kit when he is out walking. He normally takes still photos when out walking in the mountains so something with a decent zoom and good clarity & colour are the main priorities. He doesnít tend to use many of the other functions and Iím not worried about differences in price. Iím trying to decide between the Sony DSC-HX50V and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ40. Any help or advice gratefully appreciated!
