My New Vlogging Camera! | Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6

I'm a bit of a technophobe. I'm at that safe level where you parents think you're amazing at solving all their Microsoft Word problems but I don't know too much in the grand scheme of things. So when I decided to buy a new camera, I knew it wouldn't be easy. I'm on tight budget, I am very fussy and I like to get value for my money. All I knew is that I didn't want to go over £300 (ruling out favourites such as the Canon G7x and the Canon Powershot S120 which I'd been lusting over), I wanted a vari-angle/flip screen so I could frame my shots when vlogging and that it filmed in high quality (including auto focus). I'd pretty much decided on either the Sony Cyber-Shot WX500 or DSC-H90 and decided to pop into John Lewis to check both out in person. I was still just as confused when I saw them and then my Mum called me over to the discounted cameras that had been used for display purposes. 

This was one of those. It was in the sale for £197 (with an RRP of £299) which I couldn't resist. It has a great multi-angle touch screen, the focus settings are great and I can easily remove and change the lens which is great if I decide to branch out. It claims to work well in low light settings and has a pretty powerful flash. Not essentially but handily it has wifi options and in general it seems simple enough for an idiot like me to use. So far the only downside I've noticed is that it's quite bulky but that's such a minor flaw because this seems to be such great value for money.

Maybe I've made a huge mistake. But I'm happy with it. Why spend a lot of money for the mainstream favourite if you're happy with the other options?
