I'm very new to photography and I do not know any terminology and lens stuff or f-stop but I would like to get a camera for taking photos for my work.
I need to take pictures of small tag plates of my machines in very low light settings and I also need to take macro shots of them in many cases, some of the places that I take photos in have almost no light.
I have been using my iphone for taking photos but it is proving to be really a problem for me in getting a decent photo especially when I need to balance myself at an awkward angle while juggling with an iphone and torchlight to take pictures of the machines.
Many of the photos turned out blurry thanks to the less than adequate flash of the phone and I needed to take an average of 5 pictures for each machine. Usually I need to take more than 10 machines at one go in a hot, dark, dusty and humid environment so imagine the hassle I had to go through.
As I would prefer something that is compact that I could handle single handed, my friend told me to consider the Canon G15 or the Panasonic Lumix LX7, I'm leaning towards the LX7 because of the good reviews so I wonder if you could give me some input.
Hoping that any kind soul could help me out
