Circa 2006-2010 I was what you'd call an avid photographer. Had a nice prosumer DSLR setup complete with a 500mm lens. Who says size doesn't matter? Then the golf obsession took over while the Nikon just gathered dust in the closet.
When I adopted my (puppy) daughter two years ago I wanted a good but smaller camera to capture all those special movements. So picked up one of those mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, thinking I still want the power and control just in a more compact body. But like the Nikon the Sony is also just gathering dust in closet.
The mirrorless was still too bulky to truly carry around everywhere. Time for a point-and-shoot? Or should I just get a camcorder? I'm shooting a lot of videos these days and it would be nice to have a dedicated 4K camcorder. But even the smallest 4K camcorder is still not something I can carry around everywhere. Need something that can fit in a shirt/pants pocket. There are a couple of point-and-shoots that does 4K videos, so maybe a good point-and-shoot is the answer. Another option is to upgrade my phone. Phones these days have great cameras. But no matter how good the camera I find the phone interface very awkward/annoying for dedicated camera use. Then there's the issue of do I really want to process large 4K video files. 4K video looks amazing but video processing is so much work, especially on my mid-level computer. So many first world problems.
