I want to shoot some photo's on vacation.
I was looking to buy a compact camera: Sony RX100 3
As i watched some reviews etc..
I saw that it's not that much better than a samsung galaxy s7

What do you guys think.. is it worth buying the Rx100 3 for 600 Euro
especially if you already have a galaxy s7.

I would like to hear your opinion
thx in advance
(btw i'm going to shoot the photo's on wintersport vacation in the alps)

I'm no camera expert so I'm here to add my 2 cents.
If you're happy with the quality of photos taken on the s7 then i don't see the point in buying the camera.
Where the camera might outshine the s7 is in low light situations.
Pictures become really grainy in low light with my s7 edge.

The best camera is the one you have with you.
Are you going to carry both of those around?

If this were a choice between the Galaxy and a good DSLR or mirrorless, and you were prepared to take both, then sure. No contest.

But if the Galaxy takes pics that are acceptable to you, and the RX100 isn't that much better...maybe just use the Galaxy.
