My daughter heads overseas shortly and was going to lug her SLR.  I've told her it's too big.  She wants more than a phone camera - mostly for shooting faces as she parties across the Continent.  Any thoughts as to a small camera that would suit?  I've offered my Canon point'n'shoot but that's not good enough for her.  :rolleyes:

I'd recommend a Panasonic Lumix (Leica lens) very small, light, takes good pictures and wasn't expensive iirc. I used it for holiday purposes also and it stood up alright  :)

I bought the Nikon J1 a while ago and am very happy with it - compact size but you can still change lenses like an SLR. Photo quality is brilliant as are videos!

i've got a Lumix and it's a pain in the arse to get photos and video off
it.

Something about the way it formats I think???

Just put the card into a card reader.....?

I've had one for years, never had a problem.

Maybe the newer ones have issues ?

Never had that issue it'd always been a simple drag and drop for me, the laptop I had at the time had a memory card slot and that's what I used.

This'd be the equivalent I'd say to what I picked up back then: http://www.panasonic.com.au/Products/Lumix+digital+cameras/Compact+and+stylish/DMC-SZ9/Overview
