State of the Compact Camera market
1

I was looking to replace my Canon G7X, which I bought in 2018, Xith another compact camera.  To my surprise, there were no recent Canon models available. I then looked at Panasonic/Lumix, since I had a lovely Lumix LX7 until it got water damaged.

I didn't look at other models since I am most familiar with Canon and Lumix models, but - has the compact camera market disappeared now, since the onset of Smartphones?

I have to admit, the 'HDR' feature on my recent smartphone was way better than the HDR function in the Canon G7X, and the 'magic eraser' from Google is 10x better than the corresponding feature in the latest Photoshop elements release, so I guess all the serious R&D into 'features' is going exclusively into smartphones.

Canon PowerShot G7 X Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7
