    Advice selecting a portable cammera

    Hi all,
    I am looking forward to buy a pocket (small) cammera. Not a simple automatic one (I have my phone for that) but one that I can manage speed, aperture, etc. and with raw.
    I would like to stay within Nikon but most of the critics I've read refer me to the other brands: Sony, RIcoh, Fuyi, Panasonic...
    That's why I came to ask you that are surely Nikon fans. Is there any good option or I should move to a different make?
    Thanks in advance.
    Cheers

    Do you want something with a fixed lens or interchangeable lenses? Do you want/need a hot-shoe? Also, what sort of budget do you have?

    Hi,thanks. I want something comfortable to carry it with me. I thought about N1 J5 or an EVIL but if I am not wrong this will mean carrying two lenses or more. Are these really better?
    In terms of budget I move between $400-$800.

    I don't know what you mean by an "EVIL". The N1 J5 is a pretty capable camera for what it is, but the whole N1 line has been discontinued by Nikon and lens selection, if that matters to you, will be limited because of that. Personally, I'd look elsewhere.

    In your stated price range I'd tell you to look into a Sony a6000 or, if your budget allowed it, the Sony a6300.

    I try to avoid recommending none Nikon cameras but on this occasion apart from the Nikon 1 series i cant think of any Nikons.

    Try looking at the Panasonic m4/3 compact range,most come with a 12-32 lens which is the same FOV as a 24-62 on nikon full frame
