Leaving Ogijima



I’m always a bit sad when I leave Ogijima (well, at least nowadays, I know I’ll get back there soon, not like when I lived in France and didn’t know when I’d return). Yet, this is when one can get some of the best shots of the island.

And as we’re talking photographs, I’m about to buy a new camera, but as I’m quite illiterate on the issue, I wanted to know if any of you could give me some advice. My budget is about Yen 30,000 (€300, a bit more in $) and I’m thinking about getting a bridge camera (I’m getting tired and finding myself more and more limited with a compact, and I don’t have the skills nor the budget for a bigger one).

Right now, I’m looking at these cameras :

  • Sony Cyber-shot HX200V
  • Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150-K
  • Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR
  • Canon PowerShot SX40 HS.

If you know any of those (or others) and could advise in favor or against them, I’m all ears. Also, I just realized that as I’m in Japan, I also need one that have a multi-language option.

Any thoughts?

And in any case, thanks in advance, know that you will contribute to make this blog better. 🙂
