Default Any photography guys?

For Christmas I would like to get my dad a decent camera for him to take pictures on his hikes, I would really like it to be somewhat user friendly but I don't want it to be a cheesy little digital camera but he also doesn't need something professional, I'm looking to stay in the $300-$500 range, any suggestions?

HX400v is nice. I have one. I got it for $50 locally but they go for around $300-$400.

Crazy zoom.

Wifi built in

GPS built in.

NFC built in.

Help Guide | Sending images to an Android smartphone (NFC One-touch Sharing)

HDMI port for TV

Charges via USB, no need to take the battery out.

Screen flips out for taking pics above or below you.

Shoots video in 1080p 60fps

Takes SDXC, Memory Stick Pro HG Duo

Edit: I'm not even really into photography but it's easy to use. Just set the auto mode and it will go into macro if it needs to, etc. Literally the only mode I've ever used on it and it takes great pics.

You can even set the aspect ratio with about 3 button presses, which is handy for uploading 1:1 for instagram, but it does 16:9 (tv's) and 4:3 and 3:2

You can set the video record mode to MP4 or AVCHD (not even sure what the last one is for)

I can guarantee this is a good choice for him.

I can take sample pics or vids if you want.

Look for a aps-c or full frame lens . The aps-c should be between 12-16mp the full frame 16 - 24mp this will allow detailed photos with great low light capability. Higher resolution on the sensors will reduce the amount of light they can absorb and create grainy photos from I so compensation in low light photos. Point and shoot cameras will be the easiest to use but interchangeable lenses cameras will yield better photos. My personal recommendation for the price is the Pentax k50 Pentax K-50 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm and 50-200mm Lenses 10905 it also features a wheather resistant body good for outdoors photography

I just updated the firmware on the hx400v.

That let me update the smart remote control app

now I can use my tablet as a viewfinder. I can zoom and adjust settings and take pictures from my tablet now.

I also downloaded a free app on the camera (yeah there are apps, but not many) that let's me wave my hand in front of the little eye viewer that shuts the screen off when you use it, and it takes the picture.

this is handy if you want to set the camera down or mount it somewhere and not possibly shake the camera by pressing the shutter button.
