Looking for a new point and shoot


Jun 21, 2006
I have a Canon Sx710 which I just got but im not happy with it the zoom is great but for what I'm using it for its not getting shots off fast enough there is alot of delay for whatever reason my old Sony doesn't even have this issue. Besides that issue I go to wrestling events and the action shots are often blurry. I can't get anything professional with a removable lens as these won't be allowed in alot of the events.

Only other important features is WiFi and has to be compact, cant go bulky.

I am currently looking at the Canon G7X or the Sony RX100 II,

This is the price point im looking at and these seems like greatly quality cameras

my two issues are one being the zoom, do you think its acceptable to to use cropping after the fact to get the desired closeness I want

Another thing that concerning about the Sony one is quality control, there seems to be a decent amount of hardware issues later on in some reviews

I am also concerned about dust getting on the sensor as I have had this issue with cameras before anything I can do to prevent this?

I don't know too much about cameras so any help would be greatly appreciated!


Don't bother with a new one, just learn to use what you have, and absolutely read the manual!

If you had read the manual, you would have noticed a suggestion to pre-compose the shot by half pressing the shutter and framing after that. While holding the shutter down like that, the camera is set to skip focusing and exposure stages, which drop the time to shoot from possibly seconds to milliseconds (most within 100ms)

I have heard a lot of good things about Canon's point and shoots as well as DSLRs. If you're dissatisfied, try a new model. It's not HP where virtually all their products except their printers suck balls (at least in my experience).

I heard good things about the Canon Powershot N2, but that might be more suitable for vlogging. I'm honestly a Canon noob so I can't be of much help to you in finding alternatives.
