Nice riding, most of us will never know the skill level you have!

On our Boston to Seattle trip this summer/fall, I enjoyed using the Sony H55.
-small
-long optical zoom
-wide angle (25mm slr equiv)
-awesome panarama mode that allows for super wide angle shots (180 degrees)

My son used a Canon sx100, that is slightly larger, but he liked the controls:
similar, but newer version:

I thought I needed an ultra-zoom until I got spoiled by a little weatherproof Canon Powershot D10...

It lives in my handlebar bag in a micro stuff sack, when walking around fits in a pocket, no worries about water or cold (on a recent Death Valley winter trip when other digital cameras were balking at the cold my camera was shooting away.

For bike touring I'd always wanted a camera that ran on AA batteries to be  independent of a charger, but I've found that the tiny lithium rechargeable in this works amazingly well, I carry an extra battery and when I'm in a hotel/motel charge both batteries up.

This is a camera that's so easy to pull out and snap that I use it on tour.

Sorry for bumping. Just curious if you still use those cameras and how many people switched to their phones.
If you still use a camera, which one?

When it comes to cameras, their applications have expanded well beyond just capturing memorable moments. In today's world, they play a significant role in various aspects of our lives, including security and workplace monitoring. Workplace monitoring, in particular, has become increasingly important for organizations to ensure safety, productivity, and compliance with policies. Cameras can help in maintaining a secure work environment, preventing theft or unauthorized access, and even enhancing employee accountability. However, it's important to strike the right balance between using cameras for workplace monitoring and respecting the privacy and rights of employees. Open communication and clear policies are essential to address any concerns and ensure that surveillance is conducted ethically and within legal boundaries.

In 2022 and 2023 I had a Sony DSC-RX100-M2, a high-quality compact camera, in the handlebar bag on a cross-country journey, but I didn't use it. The iPhone camera is way more compact and easy to use. It's at hand in a pocket of my cycling jersey.
The picture quality was good enough for the pictures in my daily journal. Transfer of pictures from iPhone to iPad, on which I type and edit the journal, by AirDrop, is also much quicker than removing the SD card from the Sony and inserting it in the iPad SD-card reader.
Next time I will leave the Sony at home. That also saves 200 gram.

Get a used Olympus EM10 mk3 and the kit lens. Small footprint and great image quality. Or, if you are ONLY going to post pics on the webs then use a phone. If you will need to blow up and crop and post process, go with a camera.

What's even more interesting is that Alessa3322 keeps on digging up long-dead threads, then rayed responds shortly thereafter, generally with a link to a commercial website. (Or in at least one instance, it's rayed first, then Alessa3322.) Go check their post history. They both have about the same amount of posts, and registered a little over a week from each other in March of this year.

If these two are what they think they are, I find it fascinating that someone/thing finds this a good forum to do that on. But I guess with bots/AI, it doesn't really matter.

I did notice the necro thread revival and even mentioned it in another comment somewhere, but I did not notice the connection to rayed.  Good catch.

I haven't had any issues with my Olympus Lumix DC Vario, it's been out in the rain, thrown around, dropped, but never dunked in a pool even though it claims to be waterproof down to 23 feet, just never wanted to test it!  We haven't used it though in about 4 or 5 years due to using our iPhones instead, so this conversation got me to pull it out and charge it...if it will hold a charge anymore.
