Choice of Camera - advice please
4 months ago

Hi,

Advice please...

Existing camera.
I own a aged, trusty Olympus 5050..had it a number of years and always been
pleased with results.

..but its on the blink..symptoms are when camera turned on it often (mostly)
continuously sends the zoom out then in again then out and etc and hence
unusable... this started a few weeks ago after a thorough soaking.
Any thoughts on what is likely to have been damaged and how best to put it
right apart from sending it off for expensive repairs.

Future Camera
As I'm about due a replacement to the above Olympus anyway any advice on a
good quality versatile, smallish, not too complicated! camera to be used during hikes.

Cost not a constraint (within reason!)

The three I've considered so far are:-
Sony HX60

and
Sony A5000

Canon PowerShot G16

but I would welcome comments/alternative cameras from experienced photographers

thanks,
Pete
