Canon (ZT) CNSX620 Final Thoughts

"Zoom I am still iffy on."

So I went to a camera store and tried out both of them. I love the LED light and extra batteries for the camera and light. The image I've shared was taken from over 15 feet away with just the optical zoom. It is easy to use and takes clear pictures. I just love how easy it is to get good looking shots.

"Takes awesome pictures."

I'm impressed with how Canon incorporated it seamlessly. I bought this Canon (ZT) Point & Shoot Digital Camera for a trip I'm taking abroad in February. 5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed. Lastly, the complaints about battery life are totally valid.

Sony RX100 VI Final Thoughts

"She loves it now!"

This camera does just what I have wanted, including zoom in video recorder mode. Some people even claim that the Sony RX100 VI rivals medium format quality. Likewise, don't rule out film. Manual focus would've been nice. It wont replace a DSLR but it comers pretty close.

"Cheaper ones are ok."

I’m now wading through the manual before heading out to shoot photos. One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector.

Make sure you format first or it may fry on you. 5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. I get great photos, and it does not take long to import them to my laptop. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed. If you receive an error message to turn off and then on remove the lens cap.
