I’m afraid I’m mostly camera illiterate.

Go with Christian’s comment.

and many are not expensive.
I googled the features you mentioned and within 10 seconds found the Panasonic Lumix on this page.


Volva at the base of photo # 3?

It could be anything you can imagine. In the field photography, I have switched to PENTAX (now RICOH) WG-3 GPS because it is a “dependable, heavy-duty imaging partner in harsh, demanding outdoor conditions” that records the coordinates of the spots where I am taking photos. Unfortunately, the WG-3 camera is entirely automatic and its close-up photos do not have any depth of field. From about 7 to 10 photos, you can select one that is so-so for posting on MO. In this particular case, I did not take enough photos that would show your volva more clearly :-). I would not expect volva in the genus Laccaria, and none of the voucher specimens that we collected and dried would have it.
BTW, would you know any medium-priced outdoor camera that would have a GPS sensor and have more picture-taking options than the WG-3, such as manual setting of ASA, f-stops, etc.?

I know how hard it is to get good photos of these.

That said, could there be a volva at the base of photo 3?
