Each one has its own purpose.
#1
I'm not actually sure how many cameras I own at this point - I need to be well-rested to count that high - but I've been looking for another one for a while. My criteria have been fairly straightforward and common:

• as a travel camera it needs to have a good lens,
• be simple to use,
• easy to carry,
• be able to take a few bumps,
• not have me tethered to A/C power,
• have a picture quality not too far below my favourite big camera,
and,
• not be too expensive.

Simple, right?

I've compared and tried dozens of point-and-shoot cameras.
At one point or another I nearly bought:

- Canon SD1400,
- Panasonic FX65,
- Panasonic TS10,
and
- Fujifilm F300EXR.

Each one had something that stopped me from buying it.

(Bad lens, personal apathy, slow performance, and fiddly operation, respectively.)

But after doing a lot of research, talking to my co-workers, and a couple of tests, I finally found what I was looking for.


Ta-da!:
