Which Compact Digital Camera for Low Light??


Am looking for your expert assistance please?

I own an entry level Canon DSLR which I take travelling, and a S3 phone. What I am looking for is something in between which I can use in the evenings when away on holiday - or even when out at night at home. Something that takes decent photos without being too bulky or heavy. Something to pop in my bag when I am dressed for the evening....

Don't need it to have fancy functions - just need to be able to take quality images of people in low light situations - eg sitting in a low lit bar on a cruise ship...

Does anyone have any suggestions please?

Was looking at the Canon Powershot SX280 HS and the Panasonic Lumix TZ40 - but I am confused with the reviews online.

Can anyone help with which is best between the two above - or suggest an alternative please?(preferably in a similar price bracket)

I live in NZ - so hopefully whatever is suggested is available for purchase here.

Really appreciate your help with this.
