    Hi, I'm a bit of a novice but I'm about to jump in to photography as a main hobby and want to know what members here think of this camera. Basically, I'm looking for a camera that's completely portable, takes better photos than a smartphone and so far I've shortlisted the GRIII and the Fuji XF10.

    What do other members think about these cameras? I tried a search and nothing came up.

    I don't have either so can't comment, but welcome aboard.

    Hi and welcome. The cameras are of a kind and reviews tend to compare them. The determinant in taking a “good” photograph is the photographer. Equipment can make this easier and, technically spoken, some photographs do need certain equipment to achieve an effect. That is why interchangeable lens cameras are the mainstay of photography. I’d look at a s/h Fuji XT-2 or XT-20 with the 18-55 lens that usually shipped with the bodies as a kit. That’s if you can get on with those cameras. People like or dislike particular models. You have to like using the camera or you won’t.

    Or even a Fuji X-T10 and the 35mm XF. No zoom, but pocketable [in a coat pocket].

    Bit hard at the moment but if you possibly can try them first and see how they handle. It can make a lot of difference to the enjoyment of using it.

    The only Fuji I have used is their film so I''m not a lot of help, but I've yet to meet a photographer who hasn't liked their Fuji, mind you, I'm not sure I've ever chatted to a Ricoh owner...

    There is quite a big technology jump between the XT-1 (&10) and XT-2 (&20) and again to the XT-3 (&30) which are still current (just). There some good deals on XT-3 at the moment as they clear stock for the XT-4.
