Great cameras you have there. I was really planning to buy for a new compaq camera just for me to use when travelling light. Yes I do have my Nikon D5300 camera with me, but sometimes, it’s useful to have on of those pocket or compaq cameras on you just in case for great moments to capture but you didn’t brought with you your DSLR camera. 🙂
Also, if I may suggest as well.. It would be great if you have a separate review for each of those camera or at least they should have separate like buttons for each other. 🙂
