    I just don't want to carry something so bulky, would like something light and thin with all kinds of tiny lenses – kind of like birds views

    Hi there, I would like to ask for some help here…
    I am trying to buy a relatively good camera on a budget…one that has an acceptable zoom, creates high quality videos and specially makes nice photos and videos under poor illumination/night…
    I cannot spend more than 300eur/350 USD..
    whch one of these would be enough for an amateur like me…

    Olympus PEN E-PL6
    Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70
    A bit cheaper ones
    Nikon Coolpix S7000
    Canon PowerShot SX710 HS
    Canon PowerShot SX610 HS

    thanks a lot

    I am very happy with the D3300, bought it about a week ago and well… I think even though people are still going on about the Canon vs Nikon thing… The video got it right – take a look at both, try them out for yourself and then decide… For me it was the grip and feeling that I had, that made me go for the Nikon (and also the 1080p 60fps… but that's another story)…

    This is fantastic. I didn't see the point in spending $600 on a mid-range camera with limited capabilities when an entry level DSLR cost the same and the learning curve was similar. Thank you.

    If you're watching this in 2016 there are a lot of better cameras out there that are now cheaper as well. Such as the Canon t6i and Nikon D5500 which are at an arguably higher level and are the exact same price at around £430 ($630)

    How about a used or refurbed D7100? Probably the best value out there.

    Disagree with something… The sl1 autofocus is better than t5i…t5i uses the older af
