If I were you, I use the money for a p&s to upgrade your phone, although the s5 should have a pretty decent camera too.

Hey All,

Going to Hawaii and looking for a camera.

Was thinking DSLR, but I won't truly use it for its purpose.

What about this point and shoot for S100, Sony Cyber-shot DSCW800B?

Would it be better than a Samsung S5 phone?

Or could you recommend a good point and shoot?

The Devil made me buy it - RFD. :twisted:

I could imagine taking a iPhone 7/8plus/X on a vacation and being pretty happy with just that as my camera. If I could put it into a case like an Otterbox with some kind of wrist strap so it doesn't go flying out of my hand for more action oriented shots, that would be ideal.

For true underwater and rough stuff, I would still want an action cam like the Sony or Gopro where I can mount it on body or vehicle surface and capture the scene with ultra wide angle.
