Hi! I wanted to buy a camera with limited budget, use only for travel photos.
Recently saw that they are selling Panasonic Lumix SZ10 here in Russia for around 100USD, which is affordable for me.
However, since it's published 4 years ago, is it still worth to buy? or my iPhone 6 is good for travel photos?
Thank you in advance!

Before buying the camera, ensure the following things:

1. All cameras are designed or a specific shutter count value. Since this one is a 4 year old one. Ensure that it has not crossed the shutter count limit.

  1. Inspect for fungus. Make sure that there are no fungus in the camera lens part. This can affect the image quality.
  2. Ensure that the auto focusing system is intact. Sometimes, the focusing motors may have issues with extended storage.
I hope, this helps.
