The Sony CyberShot DSC-HX50V, an ideal travel camera

My wife will be off on a trip soon and she wanted a camera to bring with her. “What’s wrong with the camera on your phone?” I asked. “It’s slow (to focus), the pictures don’t always come out good, I can’t take pictures indoors and its flash isn’t very good.” “Ok, take my D7000.” “What?!? …
