Here's an article with an intro and a couple of the models reviewed are listed in the above link

Thanks Gerald, I’m totally lost now . As you sY , so many possibilities.
I have a DSLR but I want something smaller for travel and the Canon SX730 seems like a good option .
I think I am almost 100% going to go with that .

Ger a question please. I've made an offer on a lens, no interest in the Camera, lens only "Canon 500 film camera with 35-80mm zoom lens"
Will that lens work on my Canon Rebel, 350D? Thanks.


Should work fine Strum. The EF lenses used in the film cameras are compatible with DSLR's. Do bear in mind that the 350D effectively converts that lens to
55-130mm approx as it has a cropped sensor.

If I were you, I'd be plugging one of those compacts to Dancer, so you can have her lenses. ;)


If I ever don’t need my lenses , you’ll get first refusal Strum dnc1

Dancer,

To put the cat among the pigeons...HID likes Fujifilm x-T1 or Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX1

The Fujifilm camera has interchangeable lenses, but you won't be able to use your Canon lenses.

Tha panasonic camera is a compact without interchangable lenses. Both do RAW and have viewfinders. The latter very useful in bright light.

Thanks for all the recommendations , I think I have narrowed it down to three models;

Canon SX730. https://www.connscameras.ie/p/canon-pow ... 4574647500


Sony RX100 MK11 https://www.connscameras.ie/p/sony-dsc- ... 5524948707

Panasonic Lumix TZ90https://www.connscameras.ie/p/panas ... 5232867868

Which of these would you choose ? I know its all about personal choice but lets just say I offered you a choice of one of these models
no obligation to get it right, just a camera from me to you :D which one ???

I would be inclined to choose the Lumix I think; either that or the Sony. But the price difference is a lot between the two. So, without a huge amount of conviction, I'd go with the Lumix........or a new fridge.

So.......I went with the Lumix. I got a great deal ; camera plus case + extra battery + 64gb SD card
for 495 euro and in 35 days time I can claim an extra 40 euro cashback :D Now I just have to figure out how to use it :lol:

I wouldn't recommend this one. Seems it's not that great in the heat . . .

Here's an interesting thing, something I've never observed before . . .

Open your Browser in Google Maps
Switch to Satellite view
Search for " Garryglass, County Tipperary"
Zoom in.

Yes, I saw that, but it's very clear without having to zoom in. So is there something else I am missing is what I'm wondering.

My new camera is fantastic according to the guy in the camera shop but I’m
finding it difficult to get my head around all the settings . I wish I had more patience .
My Canon 40D is a great camera but cumbersome and I thought a nice little compact
would be just the ticket but I’m beginning to think I may have made a booboo dontknow icon_scratch :(

Maybe you're looking for a Telescope. What are you photographing?

A telescope is great. We have some here and I never bothered but one day I needed to check out something in the distance and when I realised just how far and how clearly I could see …..wow...the big danger is that I now feel that someone with a telescope might be looking back at me>>> :lol: :lol: :lol: good for the goose etc.

Landscape, portrait , night shots , macro, etc. this camera is capable of doing all that but I can’t get it to take
a decent selfie as yet . I realise now that photography is NOT my forte . I can’t get to the point where I know exactly
what settings to use in any given situation . I’m afraid it’s a major fail for me on this one .
My strong points lie elsewhere so it’s back to auto setting ......ah well !

I know what you mean Dancer, I have a good Canon camera with all the bells and whistles inc a few decent lens .... I use it occasionally and whilst its good, its a pain to have to keep fiddling with it, when all I want s a quick snap. As for selfies, they are just a phone job for fbookers where the double chin disappears when you look upwards :lol:
