OK I need to pick your brains here. I'm looking to buy a camera as a surprise birthday gift for a friend of ours. She's had videography training as a hobby and loves photography so she'd be fairly comfortable in manual mode. Currently she's stuck using her smartphone camera. Based on discussions over the past few weeks I've discerned the following: - She likes landscape photography but also wants to try portraiture but she's shy - Small enough to fit in her purse. She's fairly tall and not a girly girl so whatever she's using as a purse might not be THAT small. - She was leaning towards Canon until I showed her the advantages of MFT. - I'd want to get an ILC camera so she can start to build her collection of lenses but if there's a fixed lens camera that has excellent IQ and capabilities I'd take a look at that too. - Decent video quality so she can put her latent training to some use. - Tiltable/Swivel screen would be nice - EVF would be nice - Hotshoe or built in flash would be nice BUDGET ~ US$500 ( yeah yeah I know, USED gear is our friend here ) Candidates: - Pan GM5 - I hear a lot of good things about this one. Would the 12-32mm kit be good enough for landscapes? No tiltable screen though. - Oly Pen Series - These look really good but are larger than the GM5. Any other ideas or suggestions. I'm open to anything. I just want a good foundation camera for her to start her hobby with that's not too bulky. For reference she's held my GX8 and thought it was rather bulky.
