📸📷Camera question 📷📸


#1

I need help and know nothing
Basically I’m looking for a compact camera that can shoot at a wide aperture without loosing sharpness and a lens that starts around 25/35mm. Also it would need a flip out screen and generally be practical to carry everywhere. Don’t mind if it has a fixed lens as long as it can do the stuff I said, and most of all it needs to be fairly affordable (<£500) because I also would like to get a lens for my dlsr (looking for a used sigma 35mm which is so bloody expensive). Any advice would be great even if it’s to say that I probably won’t find a camera like this. Have been looking at reviews and stuff and think the Panasonic lx10 looks alright but it’s not even weather sealed and I’m clumsy/in the rain a lot

I love my fuji 100s as a “keep it in my bag at all times” kind of camera

May not fulfill all your criteria though


#3

I’ve been thinking getting one of them for ages, or an X100t. Look like great cameras.


#4

Did you buy it?

That one I linked is now sold.


#5

I didn’t! I want to have a play with one before I buy. Want to see what they’re like in low light in particular.


#6

All I can say is I had a compact Panasonic about 6 or 7 years ago that had a 15x zoom and it was a very very good camera for what it did. Consistently took nice shots and the lack of viewfinder was never an issue.


#7

Another shout for X100T, might be cheaper now that the X100F has come out. I have one and it’s a really great camera, I love using it.


#8

Here’s some pics I took with it. Low light is pretty good (with the iso cranked)


#9

EDIT: Links didn’t work


#10

These are really selling it.

EDIT: Ach, you edited it!


#11

haha stupid internet


#12

Oh - they’re NICE.


#13

What did you end up getting? I’ve been looking for a camera, on and off, for years. Never seem to get very far.

Decided the x100 might not be quite right, so have been looking at the Lumix GX80. Gets decent reviews, and I quite like the Lumix camera I have at the moment. Anyone know much about them? Is getting a micro four thirds cameras a bad idea?

Haven’t got one yet! I ended up getting a super takumar lens for my dslr and a contraption that links my SD card to my phone so I can edit photos quickly which is my answer to a good camera with Wi-Fi :sweat_smile: I really want this, but ££££££
