Backup point and shoot camera
« on: February 02, 2014, 09:00:06 PM »
Hi all
I have been using my canon 6d for awhile and want to look for a backup camera on the go. I am very picky on IQ of the shots that I took. Can you give my any idea for the one that I want. Btw, my budget is $400. Thanks

Non-commercial photography - yes, an M would be a good choice.

Commercial photography - another 6D.
Happily ignoring the laws of physics and the rules of photography to create better pictures.

Sony RX100, first version.
The price dropped since there is a marginal better, 50% heavier version 2.
1D MKIV, 5DMk III, lot of lenses, flashes etc
Fuji X100s, Sony RX100 III

Hello Kalich,
if your budget is limited to $400 you don't have much options.
I'd say you should get an EOS M. IQ is great, but of course your 6D is better (especially at high ISO)

Thank you for all suggestion. I was considering the sony rx100 version1. I've had canon M before but I did not like it much

+1 on the Sony RX100 v1. I have one and the IQ is very good and it is truly pocketable (Shirt or pants)
