Alaska Cruise
I am going on an Alaska Tour/Cruise. I am not a camera guy so probably need a point and shoot camera. I guess I need a good wide angle and zoom camera that is compact. I was looking at the Sony Rx100 lll. What should I be looking at?

The RX100 III is a fine camera- but it is quite short in the zoom department- though some might say the benefits of the shorter zoom, faster lens and bigger sensor (with improved IQ) is worth it.
Others offering a bit more reach,whilst remaining compact-ish...
The older RX100 II,Nikon P7800,Fuji X20/X30,Olympus Stylus 1,Canon G16....
And if you want even more zoom in a baby body... Sony's WX500.

Thanks. I will look at all of them.

Another decent small zoom camera is the Panasonic ZS50 (TZ70).
