good picture in auto mode
May 7, 2013

Hello to everyone,

I'm trying to find a good compact camera that takes good photos in auto mode. Almost all cameras have smart auto mode now but on the other hand real performance in terms of deciding pre-defined settings and actual picture quality may not be so good. I've tried Olympus SZ-31MR, it's a nice and handy camera (I like the zoom) but the pictures taken in auto mode are not that good at the end of the day.

So, I'm wondering if Canon SX280 (with new DIGIC 6 processor) or Sony HX30 (maybe HX50) will be enough or do I need to consider Canon S110 or Olympus XZ-2.

I need a compact, easy to use and a camera that can perform good performance in auto mode. This may be a ludicrous question for most of the people here, but I will be very appreciated if anyone can help.
