Re: need help choosing a compact camera

What kind of photography do you do the most? People, landscapes, inside shots, sports, busy children, sport events, family gatherings, low light shots, buildings, pets at play, still life, industry etc.

This is what narrows the choice of a camera. There are many bridge cameras but precious few that can do sharp low light photos handheld. The last wedding I shot it seamed every one had a phone camera or a compact camera. The father of the bride pulled me aside and asked with all these camera why did I need to pay you? I answered because I will get the shot of every magic moment in the actual wedding without a flash. Interesting to me the dad told me after the wedding you caught the tears on my daughter's face as I gave her to the groom! No one saw you do that. No compact will replace DSLR but some compacts are better than others.

I own eight digital cameras 2 DSLR, 1 3/4 mirrorless, 6 bridge Nikon, Fuji, Olympus and Panasonic and they all take excellent photos under the right conditions.
