Camera Woes Again

Posted: March 8, 2015 in Ramblings

I want a weather-resistant (because it’s Seattle), compact (for travel), remote-capable (because I shake too much without a tripod and remote) point-and-shoot.  If you ever stumble across one, please let me know.  I haven’t been able to find a way to narrow this down.  Different manufacturers use different terms for weather-resistant (weatherproof, waterproof, weather-sealed, and so on); many of them are usable with an iOS or Android phone as a remote (and you all know I don’t use those things).  There is no Windows Phone app for any cameras that are weather-resistant.  It’s a tough call!  I’ve been browsing manufacturer sites as well as store sites and can’t really find a way to narrow this down.

I do not mind a 100% waterproof camera but I really only want something that won’t be corrupted if I’m out in the neighborhood taking pics and it begins to rain.

There are quite a few weather-resistant DSLRs (too big, too great of a learning curve for me).

There are a few DSLR-sized point-and-shoots that take remotes (too big).

There are plenty of waterproof point-and-shoots but they don’t have remote capability.

Thanks for keeping your eyes open for me.

My Sony Cybershot HX50V.  This one's for sale.

Purchased this camera in 6/14 and took it on quite a few vacations.  I’m selling it, with original box and all accessories plus the pleather jacket case, for $198 total (shipped in the US).  It is still $298 at Amazon (including the jacket case).  Please contact me if you are interested.  Has a 30x zoom and uses SD cards.  It’s a good camera, but my least-favorite of all the ones in the house, and the proceeds will go towards this mythical waterproof, remote-controlled point-and-shoot, if I ever find one.
