Was considering upgrading to another compact pocket zoom to get better low light performance. My SX260 is still going strong, and from what I have read it seems unless I go to a 1" , there is not a definitive camera that is better for low light (or is there?). For me, there is not enough zoom range with a 'compact' 1", and I already have the Lumix FZ2500 ( 1" ) which is too big for pocket.
So perhaps there are a few techniques or software tweaks for the SX260 that can help me improve the final image (or video clip)? I have lightroom and can improve noise, but there is so much banding; any tips for that?
