Since my original post, I wore myself out reading and watching online reviews of various point and shoot cameras as there are so many options available and one review may say a camera is great, then another say no so great.

Mainly, I'm looking for a nice point and shoot that does well in low light conditions (such as in a concert setting) and cost won't break my piggy bank.

I finally narrowed down to look for a used Sony RX100 - Mark 1 on ebay (already have some snipe bids set up). Hopefully, I can snag a used one for about $150. Go cheap or go home .

Can't recall the last time I took or posed for a photo. When I go there will be few images of me for others to comment "who the hell is that dude in the back?"

Our main camera is a Panasonic DMC-LX7 point and shoot. It's what we (mostly my wife) use on vacations, taking pictures of family events, or just taking shots around the house.

I also have a Panasonic DMC-TS3 waterproof camera we use in wet conditions (snorkeling, hiking in the rain, etc.). We don't use it much but when we need it it's nice to have.

I personally shoot video more than photos so I have a Panasonic VX981K 4K Camcorder (I just replaced my VX870K camcorder that quit working). I use it to film our vacations and hiking trips (Some of Our Favorite Home Videos), and for my various DIY projects (More About Anthony Watson).

I tried taking pictures with our LG2 cell phones but was not impressed. Compared to a dedicated camera the images were terrible. Yeah, they look OK on the tiny cell phone screen, but full screen on a monitor or printed out the quality is really bad. It's also awkward to zoom and take the shot on the phone. I'm sure the cameras in our phones are outdated, but I would never use our cell phones for photos unless it was the only thing I had available at the time.
