Hello all. I would like to ask you for your kind advices.

After many years I am going to buy a new digital camera, have been using a smartphone so long. I often go to the nature and take shots from tops of the mountains, pictures of landscapes, but also details of flowers. The nature would be the primary use of the camera, but also it would be less used for family events or during visits of new cities.

I suggest that you look at the Buying Guides for various classes of camera, as featured on the forum.

As in the nature there are different weather and light conditions, it is more harder for me to look for the best camera. In all cases I want to use only the FULLY AUTOMATIC MODE.

Most cameras have fully Auto modes, and I have used the "Intelligent Auto" mode of my Sony a5100 on occasion. Don't be alarmed at the prospect of using the various semi-auto modes either.

So please, what camera will take the best photos in this fully automatic mode? My budget is 800 eur, total max 1200-1300 eur, but I wouldn't like to get so high, only if your preferred model would be really worth that money and the difference in the quality would be so significant. I prefer more smaller camera, maybe compacts, but I will not say no to some bigger one.

Many cameras will be suitable, and one the "bridge" cameras (already mentioned) may well fit your needs. Other cameras with interchangeable lenses (Sony, Nikon etc.) may require several lenses to cover the variety of subjects that you mention.
