    Point and shoot first camera?

    Any advice on first camera (point and shoot)? Something simple, but high-quality.

    How much do you want to spend? Do you want any manual settings or completely automatic?

    Well just to start these brands, Canon, Nikon, Sony, Panasonic.
    I will edit this in the morning..
    And just for your info, you can get a interchangeable lens camera for that kind of money.
    The point & shoot cameras have changed quite a bit in the last few years!

    Scroll down here too.

    This is a good site to research cameras, with links to Amazon.

    Personally I use an old Panasonic DMC-GF3 which is a compact system camera. For watches I either use a H-H014 or a H-H025 lens. All very affordable options. The H-H014 is a “pancake” lens so the whole set up is very compact, in intelligent auto it works really well as a point and shoot. It also has a good level of functionality in manual mode. The H-H025 is f/1.7 so a quick lens, which means you can create good depth of field and bokeh effects in photos. The camera body itself is old, there are newer versions available but at the same time you could pick up a cheap second hand one online.
