Camera buying advice

This is my first post and I am looking to buy a small camera. I want something under 400 and am happy to go down the used camera route either mirrorless or compact with a decent sensor (micro four thirds or something).

a few options i have been looking at well within my budget are:

Ricoh GR 16.2MP (the 2013 one)

olympus pen e-pl8

Canon eos m100

panasonic lumix lx15.

basically something small with decent specs. if anyone has any advice on what to get i would really appreciate it (:

(I know its a random selection but I also want something that looks nice)

Canon EOS M100 Olympus E-PL8 Panasonic LX10

Re: Camera buying advice

My suggestion is to buy a used Fujifilm X100F. Good looking camera, small, compact and powerful!

Re: Camera buying advice

I would advice to earn double your budget and purchase nice used apsc setup. With $400 is hard to choose good option.

What subjects do you want to shoot anyway? Do you want to shoot stills or videos?
