Hi- I am a proud owner of a DSLR which I love (although I am an amature and don't use 90% of the functions on the camera). But now I am looking to buy an easy to use compact camera to take with me on weekend trips, evenings out, etc. It will mostly be used for pics inside (mostly portraits/people) as well as outside (our kids playing on the beach or by the pool, trips to the zoo and the like, portraits, maybe some landscapes, etc). It might use it for a little bit of filming as well... I have an old compact but am dissapointed in the pics it takes (I think it's approx 8yrs old, 8MP and it takes horrible pics inside with awful lighting and red eyes, which I dont want!!!) After spending some time on the internet looking for info, I find mself even more confused and baffled at all the options out there. I think I might have narrowed it down to the following 2: Sony RX100 (I understood great for portraits and landscapes, but maybe not great for taking candid shots of the kids due to limited zoom) Pana Lumix TZ60 (Less quality images, especially indoor portraits, but better for shooting the kids) Both seem to get great reviews. (I was also looking at the Fuji X20 but it seems to complicated/advanced for an amature although I love the looks...) Anyone have any info that can help me, or have been in a similar dilemma? Is the Pana really that "bad" or is the zoom worth it and will pics be sufficiently good for recreational use? Or can I take good "distance" pics with the Sony and still get good close-ups by zooming/cropping the pic after, and will this be suitable quality for making printed albums and the occasional large print? Like I said, I am an amature so any help welcome!!! Thanks!!
