Re: P5000 for a backup??

Hi,

That is also why I bought a P5000. See:

and:

but there are better posts and more informative ones if you search this forum. All I can say is that as a back-up, light weight travel camera and one to have when a DSLR is just too much it serves its purpose very well, delivers what I think is excellent image quality, and - if you set it up properly - is relatively responsive with more control and better ergonomics than most competitors, and which has the added, but underestimated advantage, of an optical viewfinder for bright conditions.

Hope that helps
