I bought a Nikon Coolpix A900 last year for the tour that didn’t happen. I chose that one because of the telescoping lens and the ability to do both manual and auto settings and movies. It took good pictures when we went to Hawaii.
Pros: picture clarity, lots of settings for all types of photos, easy to use after figuring how, viewfinder is movable so you can set it at whatever angle will best frame the picture or to see in direct sun or do selfies. Accepts a tripod which some point and shoot cameras do not.
Cons: heavier than I thought it would be, not intuitive to find settings, no old fashioned manual to learn all that the camera can do (manual is probably online if I want to kill a tree printing it.)
Lots of people on the forum use their phones. I wanted a camera for all the available settings without buying a more advanced camera. My research repeatedly led me to the A900. I hauled around a Canon AL-1 with several lenses and lots of film rolls when I went to Ireland in 1992. I don’t want to carry a big camera bag again.
