The Sony RX100 series have a very nifty panorama setting - I think the options are either 120ș or 180ș. I prefer the former. With the panorama, you are limited to jpg only, no RAW possible. Earlier versions of the camera are still sold and are way cheaper than the latest mk VII. IIRC the mk III has a faster lens but shorter zoom. Still, a very, very good camera.

I was on holiday recently and I took both my Nikon D7000 and Sony RX100 III with me - the large Nikon is a more capable camera, with all the nice glasses I amassed over the years, but the RC100 will fit in you pocket or handbag.

Nikon D3400 Kit (AF-P DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR) - as a true beginner in photography I have managed to grab some amazing shots with this one!

In my opinion, Sony NEX-6 is ideal for holidays if you want to get really high-quality photos. If the photo is less critical and you want to save a little, I recommend the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX20V.

Last night. A little manual mode shooting on the Seatac tram. X-T30. Easy to toss in the briefcase on business trips. Love it. 1 second exposure iso 160 f5

Fuji x100f, seems to solve the bridge between big and small, lost too many shots to smalls small sensors

I am a Sony person. Usually carry the RX100 VI in pocket. I will also carry two larger bodies with me. For scenarios where there may be wildlife action to track, it would be a Sony A9 or A9II paired with a long telephoto zoom such as the Sony 200-600 or a Sony 100-400 with 1.4x teleconverter. I tried the Sigma Art 150-600 but it was too massive. Other body will usually be higher resolution such as AtrIII (haven't traveled with A7rIV yet) and a wide zoom (Sony 12-24) plus a medium range such as ther Sony 24-105. The Sony 24-240 has good range but is slow and doesn't have the quality or build of the more costly glass. The newly-introduced Tamron 28-200 will be better than the Sony 24-240 but still not of the same level as a Sony G or GM glass. Always carry a GoPro plus Osmo Pocket. Lately have become a fan of the Insta360 and I have two of their cameras. Best is the new Insta360 One R with 3 interchangeable heads-- 4K wide, 360 VR, and a 1" Leica. And of course, an iPhone

Stuck with Nikon when transitioning to mirrorless.

But who knows, seems like there could be a lot more consolidation in the ILEC market in general.
