Compact or Bridge
« on: March 15, 2015, 07:13:57 PM »
Does anyone have any infer or idea on a small in the pocket camera that will give me 10-150 (200 if poss:) as a walk about small in the pocket camera that does not need lens changes. Not worried if it costs a bit so long as it does the job. Needs to be 10mm asa minimum though.
Thanks
Jeff

I was looking for myself and my future son in law for a half decent pocketable camera. he was looking for large zoom facility whilst I was looking for low light / fast lens facility.  The Panasonic TZ60(4.3-129mm) he bought in the end with my advice was a nice little camera offering a bit more than the x30 I might have gone for in a better size for him.
See: http://www.techradar.com/reviews/cameras-and-camcorders/cameras/compact-cameras/panasonic-tz60-zs40-1210530/review

I think there is a TZ70 I now or coming.

Me - I got a Panasonic LX100. Bigger than the RX100 mk 3 I was looking at but much easier for my big hands to hold with a limited zoom but nice 1.7-2.8 aperture for low light.

I've always been a fan of the Fuji bridges. My first decent digital camera was an S9000, and I have since then owned an HS20EXR (but I sold that to help pay for a rather nice guitar).

I still like them, and when finances permit I will buy another one. I do like my little X20, which was an impulse purchase and which I take of my infrequent holidays and use as a walkabout.
