2014 High-end Pocketable Compact Roundup

Let me put it this way. As advanced as Sony or Canon are, or as sympathetic as Fujifilm is, or as much as I like lots of other cameras…

The viewfinder, such as it is, on the LF1, gives it a million mile headstart against anything else in its class.

I will never, ever understand how can so many people shoot with their arms stretched, using cameras that are completely unfit for such a goal. I can make due with a positionable LCD (such as on my EX1), but fixed LCD? Never. Even though I have such a compact. It’s just a terrible way to take pics (except macro/closeups).

I never liked Panasonic cameras, but recently it seems they’re the only one that ‘get it’ in compacts.

Heck, if I want to carry a small pocket camera, I carry a FILM COMPACT just so I can have a viewfinder in a small camera. Maybe I’ll consider such a Panasonic some day.
