Yesterday, I dropped my pocket camera [Canon PowerShot SX720HS] on the concrete floor, shattering the glass viewfinder. It's usable, but just barely. Like one of the reviews said, the jpgs are a bit mushy. I'm a fanatic about image sharpness, so this is a welcome, if inopportune, chance to upgrade my photo capabilities. Would love to hear recommendations for a new pocket camera. I have had 2 Canon EOS SLRs, and managed to screw them up both by dropping on the ground or dripping sweat on them. A pocket camera works best for me - it's lighter and unobtrusive. I love the image quality and light gathering ability of the Apple iPhones, but I'm limited by their small image size.
Features I'm looking for:
- High resolution in the printed product.
- Ability to add a polarizing filter [not critical, but nice]
- 20 to 25 megapixels
- Rangefinder would be awesome.
- Professional quality
If you can suggest a camera you use, I would be very grateful. Please tell me what you like about your camera. I'm not wedded to any manufacturer.
