Thanks all for the responses........
For day to day quick snap pictures I will continue to use my photo [Samsung camera is pretty good] but I looking for a camera for ‘days out’ and scenery / landscape pictures while in HK or on holidays. However my partner requires to use the pictures and video camera for HD shots.
Therefore I would of thought I’m looking for a good bridge/superzoom or start up DSLR?
What I liked about my friends Nikon Coolpix P520:
Good picture quality [in my opinion]
- The zoon is great however unsure how often I would use it.
- Large LCD screen.
- Camera felt great and light in hand. [As advised on the forum I went to use the Sony 5t and thought it was awkward to use / handle [small] and touch screen was not as efficient as robust controls on P520]
- Robust controls and easy to access.
- Video performance good.
- GPS is a good techy bonus.
What I disliked:
Performance in low light, hit or miss.
Slow response to repeat shot.
I only used it for a shot period of time but these were my thoughts, friend insisted it was a good buy but had meet people with low level SLR’s and he felt you can ‘see’ the difference in picture quality.
I presume only when you develop pictures to hard copy do you see the true difference?
