Best pocket camera I have owned

I bought this used because I wanted a decent camera that fit in my pocket but that had a good zoom and produced good quality photos.  Given that the best camera is the one you have with you, I wanted a light weight camera for hiking and travel.  I got tired of lugging a typical DSLR around as it got in the way of my enjoying my hikes and travel adventures.  I am not a pro but I did want good photos.  Essentially, I wound up downsizing to this from my Canon Rebel T6s.  I feel the quality is excellent.

My only negative is that it has way more features than I need and it gets a bit confusing to use.  I like that it has a good macro zoom as well as just a regular zoom.  It will take me a bit of a learning curve but I am looking forward to doing more with it.  I just wish it was more user friendly.  Nothing is really very intuitive.

Overall, I really like this camera.  It beats my phone by a long shot and is easy to have with me all the time.
