Hi all

 

I am looking for a compact camera something that will slip into a pocket and is Alamy friendly, I am looking to spend up to £270 and have so far had my eye on the cannon sx280 hs 12mp 20xzoom.

 

Your views please

Check out Alamy approved list of cameras. Also their non-approved list.

Check out the forum thread(s) on the Sony RX100. It's Alamy-friendly and it sounds like a very versatile little camera.

 

But hmmm..., let's see, £270 is about $425 I believe. Don't think you can buy a new RX100 for that.

RX100 about £420 New RX100 - II about £645

 

Thats why I did not bring them into the equation.

I bought my husband's RX100 from an outfit in Hong Kong and I paid $515.00 Australian plus postage - about 302 pounds at today's rate.

Buy a used RX, Fuji or whatever? Should just about get the price below the target.

Watch out for import duty though

You can get stung for a hefty premium

Hello Liam,

 

I can help you for sure.

 

You are looking for a small camera that is Alamy friendly and in your budget. In this case i advice you to go for one of the Sony Nex-3 models. They should be in your budget and have image quality that you can expect from a DSLR. This because of the APS-C sensor. I am shooting with the Sony Nex 6 and Sony Nex 5. I am verry happy with my choice. As you can see at my portfolio the images are on pro level.

 

Futher you can go for Olympus Pen. Just makes sure that you have at least a micro 4/3 sensor.

 

Let me know if you have questions.
