    @ryan You mentioned that you are prone to breaking smartphone screens and that you have an iPhone 10x. The glass has improved substantially in later iPhone models. You will likely have a much better experience in that regard with your next smartphone model.

    No mention of the Insta360 action cams like the One X2 or Go2? And what about drone photography? It seems it’s becoming more popular and the newer models pack so much more into a smaller and lighter package.

    I would add a couple cameras in there. Canon makes exceptionally light smaller format cameras with the m100 and m200 at around 300 grams which is appealing if you want a larger sensor and more lens options than a point and shoot. The Sony a7c is also overlooked. It is the lightest full format camera to my knowledge and not much of a sacrifice compared to some of the other Sony alpha series if you want the detail and breadth of full format. It doesn’t qualify as light per say but is more compact and light than the alternatives fwiw.

    The thing about iPhones and water is that they are water “resistant” and you CAN potentially get away with putting them underwater but apple doesn’t recommend this or warranty damage done by putting a phone underwater. Especially don’t do this if the phone has ever been worked on (battery replacement or screen replacement) since this breaks seals that keep it “waterproof”. https://www.macrumors.com/2022/02/03/apple-did-not-mislead-about-water-resistance/
