I think I might have it figured out (Hopefully!)
A few days ago I posted that I was looking for a more compact camera for going on big trips since I wasn’t really planning on taking my bulky Canon Rebel T2i with me.
I had previously mentioned that I was thinking about getting an ilc camera, preferably the Sony Alpha a5000. I wouldn’t be getting any more lenses for it, and it only going to 50mm, I realized that I wanted something a little better so I wouldn’t miss a great photo.
I started looking at advanced point and shoot cameras, and in all. I’m not sure what I think about Canon’s more advanced P&S types.
After spending a good number of hours researching this, I think I have an answer – Sony Cyber-Shot HX90V (Links to review)
Now, all of the photographers out there are probably saying, “Why not go for the RX100?”
First off, the price. The RX models are more expensive. Plus, with an optical zoom of 3.6x, it’s basically up to 100mm. I don’t want to keep regretting if was ever to get one of them, that just not being able to get a better because because I wish it zoomed in more.
I don’t really care much for the flip up “selfie screen” of the HX90V though I guess it would be great for group pictures. If anyone has this model, do you know if it has a delay shutter, like setting it for 10 seconds so you can group everyone together before the camera takes the picture? That would be neat.
Also, I’m not sure how much nighttime pictures I’ll be taking with this, but every review I’ve read online says that it’s not the greatest for low light sensitivity, high iso photos? But what do you think about it?
Another thing I want to know is how does it do with focusing on your subject while blurring out the background? Does it do well with motion, like someone playing soccer and taking a clear picture of them moving so fast?
I think I’ve looked at all of the options(Or I should say all of the other cameras), and I’m really liking what I’m reading about this.
Unless anyone else out there has some better ideas for about the same price range, under $500
I’d love to hear your comments and such. I’m not too big of a point and zoom person.
For the price of an ilc or this, I might be nothing with this just incase carrying lens wouldn’t be as light, or just the weight factor of each camera.
