What camera should I buy?

Linda from Quincy, IL

Episode 1423 (43:29)

Panasonic Lumix LX10

Linda is going on an Alaskan cruise and is looking to get a good phone that has a great camera. She also wants to get binoculars, though. Leo says binoculars will probably be on the ship. She should take that money and put it towards a good camera. The problem with a camera phone is that the zoom is digital and it still won't be that good for her sole means of capturing memories. A nice point and shoot with 10x optical zoom would be a better choice. The Panasonic Lumix LX10 is a good choice. It also shoots 4K video, and adds stills to the video. It's about $600. The Canon Powershot is another good option, and it's more affordable too.
