Need advice: I need a compact P&S that takes good video (to replace the Flip)
May 24, 2013


Newbie here. So my Flip Mino HD finally kicked the bucket, and I'm looking to get a compact P&S camera that takes great video to replace it. I know I can get a camcorder instead for about the same amount of money, but I really want something that's ultra portable - the best equipment is the one you will carry and use, right? (Ok, debatable, but still...) I'll mostly use it for taking vacation photos, kids' concert/play performances (indoors, likely low light), etc etc. Typical Mom camera. Any advice?

(I saw the new Canon SX280HS at Costco - any good?)


p.s. My last P&S is a Canon SD850 IS. It takes terrible pics in low light condition with the flash (i.e. if I'm sitting in the audience and want to take a pic of the stage with the flash, the stage remains dark as the flash only lights up what's directly in front of me). Other camera in the house is a Canon A2300 IS and Canon SD1400 IS.
