For many years I have been semi-pro doing wedding business using Nikon pro camera gear. Slowly I transitioned away from the photo business and almost gave up the photography hobby. Despite this, I still like to do some street photography using a mirrorless Fuji camera. Just recently I started flying with sailplanes/gliders and would like to capture the nice scenery and do some short movies while flying. The space in gliders is very limited and therefore only compact cameras come into play.

I would need a camera with at least 10x zoom range with wide-angle (24mm), good stabilization, raw support (difficult lighting conditions), good quality video (good 1080p is enough). What cameras should I be looking? I don't need the latest fanciest camera out there... few years old, but solid camera is also ok. Budget around 500$ or less. Thanks.

Do you like any cameras listed here?
