Thanks everyone. My main purpose is to take scenes (since my blog is about travelling), towns, places, people etc., i.e.things which are not far away or moving fast, generally, as you may know. e.g. a waterfall, a street, a group of people.

I took some photos with a friend's A10 and they seem ok but not very good either. I can post one photo if you need, to compare with any cheap camera pics you may have. Thanks for you help.

Taken with an A10. No edits whatsoever.

Looks nice.

But what if you wanted to shoot only the waterfall from that same position? Just cropping that image would give you this result:

I guarantee most pocket cameras with an optical zoom would beat that (and so would some smartphones with more lens options). Again, it's about what you end up wanting or needing to capture ... and it's also about the 'human interface' of a camera vs. a phone or a tablet. It just comes down to your personal requirements and preferences.
