Very nice. I like the blurred backround.

Thanks. It was shot with a reasonably fast aperture, f/2.8, which helped to do that.

I saw that. I have now saved enough cash to buy a camera. However I am having second thoughts on the Sony RX100 VII. It does not have a touch screen and is described as difficult to work with, nonintuitive, awkward.

I used a rented one once when I visited you. It was fine as far as I felt using it. It’s physically small, which can be awkward at times, but it makes it easy to carry. I have had touch screens on a couple of my cameras; I never use that feature as I found it imprecise. I like buttons and dials. There are probably less awkward cameras for sure…but they will all be larger. Other commonly references cameras for easy carry but great results are the Ricoh GR/II/III (three generations; a friend says original is best but they are hard to find). The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark IV has been getting rave reviews and is priced in a sweet spot. Older (and thus used) Fuji models satisfy the buttons and dials and wheels old-school method if you want fingertip control rather than touch screen. Lots of good stuff out there, all have their audience.
