Am looking at getting a camera for an overseas trip. Have looked at a few options but am leaning towards the following:
Some of the reasons why I'm interested in this camera are:
- massive zoom (24-600mm)
- 4k movies
- super slow motion (up to 960fps)
- more compact than an equivalent DSLR
- great still image quality according to the many reviews I've seen
- simple enough for my techno-challenged wife.
The main negative being the price. In saying that, to my eyes it seems to offer a fair bit of value.
As well as the trip, will be using it to mainly at sports events (taking photos of rugby, swimming, canoe polo, athletics etc) and other mostly daytime activities.
My question is.... what are the alternatives? Are there any other bridge cameras that offer these features at this price point or cheaper? Should I be looking at mirrorless or dslr cameras instead? If so, what would you recommend. I'm pretty overwhelmed by the options out there so any advice or recommendations would be appreciated.
