Looking for new point and shoot camera

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi

im looking for some recommendations on a point and shoot camera

it needs to be snappy when taking pictures,decent zoom,good in low light and in doors... for a sporting event like a wrestling event..and for my girlfriend she wants it to have wifi and be able to upload to social media accounts from the camera

megapixels whatever you think is best considering everything else

size would prefer nothing to bulky but doesnt have to be super tiny

we would like to spend up to $350 lower is always better but that is our max

any recommendations would be greatly appreciated

i want to modify what i had originally asked for

looking at cameras in that price range and what some have suggested i think theres features in many we wont use we dont need anything too "professional"

i want something thats good quality and meets what i say but i think that will come at a cheaper price now looking at stuff like maybe 250?

also im open to non wifi suggestions at this point i just want something thats great for the price and is easy to use as well without features that the average person wouldnt use

also would like it too be good at hd video

any opinion on the samsung ex2f?

and forgive me for me not so knowledgeable in this area but when a camera has a pop up flash like the same samsung does that is the camera main flash right?.. so will it pop when its needed? and do they usually automatically go back down?

I would personally consider these cameras:
Olympus XZ-1 and XZ-2
Canon G15
Panasonic LX5 and LX7
Samsung EX2F
Fujifilm X10 and XF1(but it has a slow lens when zoomed in)
Sony RX100
Nikon P7700

Now, I realize that most of these options fall outside of your budget. Granted the limited budget, I'd think the XZ-1 and LX5 are good options (but you seem to mention that the EX2F falls in your budget too). If money was not a problem, out of these, the RX100 would be the better deal. These will all do full HD video, except the XZ-1 and LX5 which will only do HD video.
I would not consider the S110 because the lens gets very slow as you zoom in and I doubt you will be next to the ring when they fight. A camera like the P7700 adds a very decent zoom at a decent speed which might prove to be useful for you.

I do not know how big is bulky for you, but the G15 and P7700 should be the bigger ones out of the lot.
