So I have an old Sony Cybershot camera that I bought back in 2007. When I moved house in 2012 my partner didn't pack the battery charger. I would have bought another one but at the time I got the original galaxy note and started using that as my main camera so never got round to getting another charger. At the moment I'm using the note 3 as my main camera. I find that the pictures are good enough but I want a more dedicated device capable of taking better images, especially in low light settings. Taking pictures, editing etc is something that I enjoy. So I was thinking of buying a point and shoot camera, as I'm an amature I don't want to get a DSLR just yet. I was thinking of starting off with another Cybershot as it's a make that I've used in the past and been pleased with. I was thinking of picking up the Cybershot WX300. My question is, will I get much benefit from getting a point and shoot camera? Smartphone cameras have come on a lot in the past few years and they can produce pleasing images. However they lack optical zoom and generally don't give good results in low lighting. I can see where getting a dedicated camera may improve the image quality for moving images or in low lighting conditions, or capturing far off shots. However am I likely to see an improvement when shooting close up, still objects.
