My oddball collection of obsolete but still active digital compact cameras

I like to buy  oddball cameras apparently. Some I have bought at good prices in the last three years include a Nikon 1 J5 system (new and on sale as it was discontinued), a Samsung NX500 which was discontinued in about 2015 I think and a Sigma DP2 Quatro.

They are all quite different and have uses that suit my varied styles and whims when I go out shooting.  The Sigma is amazingly sharp at 100% viewing but often isn't wide enough, the Nikon is super compact and you barely know it is dangling around my neck on its strap and the Samsung is a good all in one, fairly compact and excellent sensor.

Image quality on all three is good to exceptional depending on the iso.

What oddball cameras are you still using even though they are getting on a bit in age?
