A ton of money, well I think what you may think is a ton of money others may not think so. I bought a SONY A6300 this spring and love it. There are plenty of goos reviews. But there are a lot of cameras that take great pictures. give folks a range of what you want spend.

Heck my iPhone takes pretty good pictures.

Loving the outdoors!

Seems like modern smartphones have kind of filled most of that niche market. Unless you jump up to the DSLR level. They get pricey and big to carry around. Between the S-Note and a GoPro it's hard to justify a pro-grade DSLR model.

I have a camera at pretty much every level from gopros to big DSLRs. My main carry is a Sony NEX-5R with a pancake lens. I have a waterproof point and shoot if I'm on the lake (in case that becomes in the lake ). And a full-frame with a fast lens for when it gets dark.

Phone cameras have pretty much killed the point & shoot cameras, in many cases they actually take better photos and videos too. So if you already have a phone with a good camera I'd suggest a mirrorless camera. You can add better lenses to it in the future if you so desire and it will take better pictures than any phone in most situations.

I use a Canon EOS Rebel S1.. it's the lighter version. I have been able to take amazing shots even when driving down the road. There are LOTS of affordable packages that will include a zoom lens. Sign up for B&H emails they have specials everyday.

My little Nikon Coolpix was $99 about 4 years ago. Still takes great pictures (16 meg). Dw has a similar unit of a different brand that takes 20 meg pictures.

The problem is that right now I don't know if they are still available, but Amazon probably has tons of them.

Ok, update, I just checked Amazon. Lots of them: Nikon, Canon, Sony etc. Small, easy to use, optical zoom and really good resolution. They run from about $100 up to the national budget.................

I' went from Nikon 35mm SLR to DSLR about 12 years ago. I needed something smaller so I bought a Canon G9 to take on a rafting trip through the Grand Canyon. It was my first P&S and has become my adventure camera for the last 8 years. It''s been on 5 river trips and more than 50 dives in its Canon underwater housing. It has been Bullet proof. I will definitely replace it with the latest version when necessary.
