Good climbing point and shoot camera 24-May-2018 At 2:35:05 PM gfdonc
Ah, cameras. I have far too many of them.
After much mucking around with this I bought a pana LX100 last year.

Before that, an Olympus XZ-1 circa 2011 which I still have in a drawer. Going cheap.

I normally carry a mirrorless micro 4/3 camera and lenses but wanted something more portable for multipitching. The LX100 is now 'old' in digital camera lifetimes (2014) but still ticks the boxes for me - light enough, very good image quality, great ergonomics (dials etc) and an electronic viewfinder which I think is a 'must' for shooting outdoors in bright light.

Others I looked at were the Panasonic LX-10 (smaller but no viewfinder), TZ-110 and also the Sony RX-100 series. I found the Sony's more fiddly to use but I think they have better image quality.

The LX100's main fault is that the exposure compensation dial is easy to turn accidentally. An upgraded LX200 is rumoured to come out later in the year.

Sample pic from Spain last year is below but bear in mind this has been downsized to screen resolution.
