Compact cameras are an excellent compromise between large and heavy DSLR cameras and mobile phones, which due to their size will always have worse optics than “real” digital cameras.
Even a small compact camera will have a larger sensor than even the best mobile phone.
A larger sensor means less noise and better dynamic contrast, which your can be read here.
A compact camera like the Canon IXUS 285 HS is a great choice for traveling and capturing your conquests. It is a direct rival of the Sony RX100, but has a much lower price and newer constructions and software.
Fixed optics with a variable focal length corresponding to the range from 25mm to 300mm will allow you to photograph both landscapes and beautiful portraits with a blurred background and a bokeh effect.
The Canon brand is a legend among manufacturers of photographic equipment.
