A friend recommended this camera for traveling. It’s light and zooms to 600 ...he loves the images. Anyone have any thoughts on this camera?

Do a search via the UHH search function. Plenty of postings about the iii and iv variants. You shall be rewarded.

I love mine. And I usually shoot a D810 and large, heavy lenses. I don't consider it a substitute, but it's great for grab n' go shooting.

The camera gets good reviews, but for me it is still not SMALL enough. You would still have it around your neck and in my opinion, this makes it too BIG to take.
Please, I travel a lot with my wife, and I have found the best TRAVEL CAMERA to be a small point and shoot that you can put in a belt pouch and then you can travel hands free and with nothing hanging around your neck.
I personally use two Sony camera's, 90% of the time I use the Sony HX-99V, it has a pop up viewfinder, very nice for outdoor shooting, and has a Zeiss 24-720 mm zoom. Has a pop up flash for auto fill and it's HDR is a good one. My other camera is the Sony RX100M2, it is an older version but this one has a hot shoe for my bigger flash.
Both can fit into a Nikon Coolpix belt clip. VERY VERY NICE for travel. I included a shot of the pouch and a photo taken on our Rhine river trip last June with the HX-90V.
TRAVEL RIGHT, TRAVEL LITE.

This is an outstanding camera. However, it is the size of a DSLR and does not fit in any pocket. I sold all my Canon equipment to buy this camera. It is the only one I use, has everything I need. Good luck.

Adorama has them on close out. I rubber banded mine for a week with camera inside to train it to close. Uses magnets.https://www.adorama.com/inkcscpss.html?origterm=nikon+black+leather+horizontal+case+for+coolpix+s8100+%26+p310+camera&searchredirect=true

Simply the Sony RX10 M4 is the best bridge camera you can buy! Worth ever penny! I absolutely love mine. Good Luck!

They are a great travel companion. They cost as much as an entry level DSLR but when you consider the price you would pay for a 2.8 lens for your DSLR...the price for the Sony doesn't look all that bad. Plus the fact you have a zoom range for any photographic situation and you don't have to carry extra lens.

How is this camera in low light situations such as a concert venue?
