Default Which travel zoom would you buy today?

If you were a point and click, full auto, no frills user (me!!), which travel zoom compact camera would you buy today?

I don't want a camera that change lens etc, it's the Panasonic TZ, Canon HS, Sony HX type want.

I also want to use it as my only camera for still and video. Must have GPS, as notice a lot don't now, good long zoom to.

Thanks

G'day mate

Go to DPReview.com and do a "side by side" comparison of the 4 cameras
You - and only you - know what sort of stuff you want to do, and so when you can see the side-by-side comparisons of these cameras, you will be in a perfect position to select which body will suit you best

I have been using the TZs from Panasonic.My wife and children too use the TZs
we have been very happy and satisfied.Reviews and opinions and ratings have not mattered so far.

What TZ do you use at moment? They seem to be the most popular. I have a TZ40 at moment, and because I want GPS the newer TZ don't have it, 70,80,100, so I'd have to go for the TZ60. Not sure how much upgrade it would be, x30 and a small EVF is about it

I would probably buy the new 40x Canon compact. Don't know about gps, but I really like its compact size.....

Seen that, perfect...ish...all the features as TZ, HX90 etc but has 40x over the other 30x. Except it doesn't have GPS and the video isn't as good for PAL...
