    A clear lift from my previous camera that was a Canon Powershot S95. Besides, obviously, much better picture quality and features than the iPhone 6s mobile camera that I also compared to.

    There are other compact cameras that have even better performance and more features (such as the Sony RX100 V and the Canon G7X II). But those models are also noticeably larger so they no longer fit, for example, in a jeans pocket (deal breaker for me), and are also often more expensive.

    Slight advantages (+) and disadvantages (-):
    + Good dynamic range and bright. 1 "sensor is useful here. Most often, you can take good pictures evenings, which went well with the Canon S95.
    + Quick Auto Focus. Clearly faster than the Canon S95. In addition, the focus can be set by touching the touch screen.
    + Can take snapshots fast (about 8 frames per second). Good when capturing sports events.
    + No bigger than fit in a jeans pocket. Absolutely crucial to my part.
    +/- It would have been nice with slightly larger zoom ranges, as well as better brightness in zoomed mode (F4.9 only now). But probably the camera had grown bigger then.
    +/- Touch screen has advantages in some modes, but sometimes you do not miss the "Click Wheel" from the Canon S95. Varies from person to person how this is experienced.
    -The lever that lifts the flash is placed so that it accidentally lifts the flash when removing the camera from the pants pocket.
    -The battery compartment cover has an opening bag that is very loose. When you take the camera out of a tight pants pocket, it sometimes happens that the door is accidentally opened (usually because the finger grips the battery cover and its lever when removing the camera from the pocket). On the Canon S95, it never happened when the lever on that model was not so loose.
