Does your phone camera not have a self timer button? Delay the photo for 3-10secs and just hold the phone one handed until it takes the photo  O0

I'm not holding any of my "brews" so one handed camera action isn't mandatory  ;D

Question

I am looking for a camera that is lightweight and has RAW file capability for hiking any suggestions?

We are using a Sony RX100 (Mark III), very small and lightweight and shoots in RAW. Excellent quality for its tiny size (fits in my hipbelt pocket) with a decent zoom range. They are up to the Mark VII now - expensive, but the older Marks like ours are relatively cheap.

For post processing, whatever your choice of camera, check that you have software available for your operating system to handle the RAW files, including the often forgotten lens-correction facility.

Another shout for the RX100 here, although mine's a MK1. Great camera!  O0

I always carry my Olympus 1s with me. It is light, fully controllable and shoots RAW if required. It is like a mini SLR and the one thing that is a prerequisite for me is a good view finder, which it has. It is not an optical viewfinder but it is 1.44 million dot electronic. It really is nice too.
It is compact and although will not quite fit in a pocket it will fit in a small camera bag and you can carry it on your shoulder all day. Most of the common parameters are adjustable with buttons or dials on the body which saves time by not having to scroll through a menu.

They are not made any more but you can pick a good second hand one up off E Bay or Amazon for a third of the original cost which was a round 450 if my memory serves me right.
Walking for me is an antidote to all that rushing around in life that sometimes happens.
