... you cannot take the cons, no one is likely to help, because no camera is perfect. Even the big-name manufacturers make different cameras with a hugh mix (permutations) of different features. Not all the features you want are ever found on a sigle camera. Take some, forfeit the others. Some solve this problem by having two or more cameras ! As for cameras being outdated in one or two years, the lower cost ones will be outdated as improvements are made and new technologies are introduced. Camera types may also go out of vogue. So, choose a camera, feel it at the shop, bite the bullet and enjoy using it.
