You guys have been great in the past, so I am back! I shoot regularly with a DSLR full-frame canon an L series lenses. However, I am finding that for small day trips and vacations I tend to leave the heavy gear at home and end up pulling out my cell phone which of course is low quality. I need to find a compact camera that is small enough to carry and good enough to motivate me to use it. I am not sure if one exists with the specs below in my budget but your help is appreciated. * What budget have you allocated for buying this camera? Please be as specific as possible. $250 or less if possible * What size camera are you looking for? Or does size not matter at all to you? To fit in a large pocket (compact but not tiny) How many megapixels will suffice for you? - 5MP or greater * What optical zoom will you need? (None, Standard = 3x-4x, Ultrazoom = 10x-12x) - 20X or greater - important * How important is “image quality” to you? (Rate using a scale of 1-10) - 10 LOL, Yes, I know this will be a sacrifice. Do you care for manual exposure modes (shutter priority, aperture priority, manual)? - some manual controls would be nice but not essential * What will you generally use the camera for? - family outings, fast boys and indoor shots of dogs and family * Will you be making big prints of your photos or not? - not bigger than 8x10 and mostly smaller Will you be shooting a lot of indoor photos or low light photos? - indoors, possibly, don't mind using flash Will you be shooting sports and/or action photos? - pets, kids playing Are there particular brands you like or hate? - love Sony for P&S, like Canon, Nikon, and Panasonic. I don't hate any. Are there particular models you already have in mind? - I need Sony to make the HX50V for $200 (If applicable) Do you need any of the following special features? (Wide Angle, Image Stabilization, Weatherproof, Hotshoe, Rotating LCD) - Wi Fi is a must (needs to be able to transfer pics to my cell phone for social media uploads) Thanks!
