Kitsafari posted a topic in General discussionHello Photography gurus! I need advice on this. My current Panasonic Lumix DSC FZ200 is showing signs of stress no thanks to impatient me overworking it. I'm thinking I should get another one - a backup in case the lumix dies on me while I'm taking a picture of an aardvark cuddling up to my leg in the Kafue park (i have big dreams). I love my Lumix and it had not failed me, until Guassa when the cold froze it and in South Africa when I oversnapped pictures in one second. So i'm torn between taking another bridge camera and or upgrade to a beginner's DLSR. I won't and never can learn to use how to manually adjust the camera for the ISO, or shutter speeds or apertures. My Lumix was fixed at auto permanently and come night time, I don't even recall how to get the flash to work. I'm that challenged. the book on "how to use the flash, Dummy" is made for me. For a bridge, I'm looking at Sony Cyber-shot RX10 III which I think @amybatt had invested in and loves, and has a larger sensor but same zoom as my current Lumix. but i'm wondering if I should just upgrade to a beginner's DLSR like Canon EOS70D. of course, DLSR will cost a leg and an arm, while the bridge is far cheaper. but it seems silly not to upgrade, and at the same time, I would be leaving the DLSR in auto so it may sound silly to use DLSR in that case.... you see the dilemma i'm in.... please, anyone, help me out?
