Canon IXUS 240 HS

Canon IXUS 240 HS

Camera Type: Ultra Compact

16 megapixels and a 5x optical zoom lens

The Canon IXUS 240 HS is one of the better touch controlled digital cameras when it comes to picture quality. For this type of digital camera it has a good set of features although there are one or two current buzz features missing. The touch sensitive screen can be a bit awkward to use, but you are likely to get used to the way it is set up over time. This is also only likely to be an issue if you find yourself wanting to make a lot of changes to settings. All in all a very good camera, but there are a few points to consider to make sure it is the right camera for you.

Canon IXUS 510 HS

Camera Type: Ultra Compact

10 megapixels and a 12x optical zoom lens

If you are prepared to pay a bit more for extra quality then the Canon IXUS 510 HS is likely to be of interest to you. For a pocket camera picture quality is very good.

The power of the lens also gives you plenty of scope for capturing a wide range of photo opportunities. It is true you pay a little extra than with more standard pocket cameras, but if you also include the stylish look of this model there is a lot on offer for the price tag.

You get quite a lot for your money with the Canon Powershot A4000 IS. If you only plan to make small sized prints or share your photos on the Internet you may not see a great deal of difference between the photos taken with this camera and those taken with other models available at around the same price. What you might notice is that the pictures have a touch more clarity. This is likely to become more evident if you make larger prints. To sum up, if you are looking for a handy compact camera, at a reasonable price, that can cope very well with most photo opportunities this camera is hard to beat.

Canon Powershot SX260 HS

Camera Type: Mid Zoom Digital Cameras

The Canon Powershot SX260 HS is one of the very best digital cameras in this category. In fact if you are happy to miss out on features such as 3D photography and 360 degree panoramas it is very hard to beat. It has a great set of features packed into its relatively compact body size and picture quality helps to make it stand out from the competition. Although it is one of the more expensive cameras in this field it still offers good value for money.

Canon Powershot SX40 HS

Camera Type: Digital Cameras with Extended Zoom Lenses

Your decision to buy the Canon Powershot SX40 HS is likely to be based on whether or not you prefer the simplicity and lower price of a digital camera with a fixed lens or whether you prefer the ultimate flexibility of a Digital SLR. If you prefer a camera where one lens covers just about all photo opportunities then the Powershot SX40 HS is hard to beat. There are no real issues with picture quality and it has a set of features that few other models can match. Recommended.

If the Fuji Finepix F600EXR had managed to focus consistently and quickly in lowlight I would have said it was more or less the perfect compact camera. In most situations this camera is able to produce pictures of the highest quality. It is packed with features and fair play to Fuji for managing to offer a camera this good at a reasonable price.

The competition between the leading cameras in this category is very tough. They all take good pictures, have similar features and are available for roughly the same price. The Fuji Finepix F770EXR stands alongside the best in the bunch and loses little by comparison. You should be able to take a decent photo in more or less any situation and there are more than enough features to play around with to fine tune your photos and get the most out of this camera. It does the job it sets out to do without much fuss and bother. I would be happy to own one.

Fuji Finepix HS30EXR

Camera Type: Digital Cameras with Extended Zoom Lenses

The Fuji Finepix HS30EXR does offer a number of differences to rival Super Zoom or Bridge digital cameras. The main difference is the twisting lens barrel, but there are other handling aspects that make it that bit closer to a Digital SLR experience. In terms of features Fuji have packed in just about everything they can think of. Picture quality compares well against rival cameras and shutter response times are also impressive. This makes this camera a very attractive proposition if you are looking for a fully featured camera with a great deal of zoom power.

Fuji have placed the emphasis on more traditional features and steered clear of some of the more recent buzz features. As long as you are not looking for features such as 360 degree panoramas and 3D photography this camera offers very good value for money.

Nikon Coolpix L810

Camera Type: Digital Cameras with Extended Zoom Lenses

The Nikon Coolpix L810 offers something different as it gives you the power of an extra long lens, but with the simplicity of a point and shoot digital camera. This helps to make it somewhat cheaper than the more fully featured models with similar zoom power. Picture quality does not match up to the more expensive models in this category, but it is only if you are planning to make extra large prints that you are likely to see much difference between photos taken with this camera and those that give you that bit of extra quality. This camera is a good choice if you are looking for simple operation and a powerful lens.

The Nikon Coolpix P310 is a fair bit cheaper than some similar cameras such as the Canon Powershot S100. It lacks a couple of features compared to that camera such as GPS and a RAW mode. If those are not important to you then this camera becomes a lot more attractive. It does not quite match up to the Powershot S100 when it comes to picture quality either, but you are unlikely to see a big difference unless you plan to make larger prints. If you are looking for a camera with plenty of features in a small sized body, but you do not want all the bells and whistles then this camera makes a decent choice.

At the time of writing this review the Nikon Coolpix P510 is out in front when it comes to the length of zoom on offer. Picture quality is inline with other extreme zoom digital cameras like the Canon Powershot SX40 HS. With the wide range of features on offer this is a true 'all in one ' camera. There are no major problems, although you might miss a hot shoe for connecting to an external flash unit. There are a lot of good points about this camera and if the zoom power is a big attraction to you then there is nothing stopping you from buying.

Some of the buzz features such as High Definition movies with stereo sound, 3D photography and easy panoramas are likely to prove popular. Pictures are bright and colourful, but you will need to be careful about print size. Larger prints may start to show a few imperfections.

So if you are looking for an inexpensive digital camera that is very simple and straightforward this could well be the camera for you. Picture quality is perfectly acceptable if all you need is snapshot quality and the longer than standard zoom is a useful little bonus.

The Olympus SZ-14 is likely to appeal to you if you are looking for lots of lens power without paying out for one of the top of the range cameras in this sector. By dropping some of the more advanced features Olympus have kept the price down. There is no getting away from the fact that picture quality could be better. How much of an issue that will be to you depends on the size of prints you wish to make. Other than that the SZ-14 is also one of the more straight forward super zoom digital cameras.

Olympus VG-170

Olympus VG-170

Camera Type: Entry Level Digital Cameras

14 megapixels and a 5x optical zoom lens

When writing reviews it is not always easy to come up with a long list of reasons to buy a camera. That is true of the Olympus VG-170. It does a lot of things well without standing out from the competition. It takes sharp looking photos and you should find this camera very easy to use. Apart from the photos lacking vivid colours there is not a lot to dislike.

Olympus VR-340

Camera Type: Entry Level Digital Cameras

16 megapixels and a 10x optical zoom lens

The Olympus VR-340 may not be the most advanced digital camera, but you get a lot of zoom for your money.

It also has a couple of features that you do not expect to find at this price level. These include a metal body and the ability to recharge the battery via a USB computer connection. So if you are looking for a simple point and shoot camera offering good value for money this camera is worth careful consideration.

Panasonic DMC FT20

The Panasonic Lumix DMC FT20 is a mid range robust digital camera. In terms of performance it is mid range too when it comes to picture quality. It is one of those digital cameras that do not stand out from the crowd, but at the same time it is hard to come up with reasons not to buy it. Picture quality is fine for snapshot print sizes.

Panasonic offers some excellent digital cameras and can normally be replied upon to produce crystal clear photos. As with previous reviews of cameras in the FX part of the range the Panasonic Lumix DMC FX90 just does not match up to those usual high standards. Focusing is softer than it should be and you are likely to see the results of this even with relatively small sized prints.

When it comes to picture quality it has few weaknesses and its length of lens means it can cope with more or less any photo opportunity.

Panasonic DMC LS6

Panasonic DMC LS6

Camera Type: Entry Level Digital Cameras

14 megapixels and a 5x optical zoom lens

On the whole the Panasonic Lumix DMC LS6 performs well. Any low priced digital camera is likely to have one or two areas where it could do better. My concern is that one of the areas where this camera struggles is with shutter response. This can cause a gap between pressing the shutter button and a picture being taken, so you could miss out on photos. As this may be a significant issue for you it is hard for me to recommend this camera.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ25 is a camera where the good points easily out way any negative points. In fact it is very difficult to come up with any convincing reasons to avoid this camera, but there are plenty of reasons for buying it. You do get a lot of features packed into the small sized body, but for me the main attraction is that is offers good all round quality. It is up against plenty of competition, but if you feel you do not need all the features offered by the top of the range models the Lumix DMC TZ25 becomes very appealing.

The 20x lens is hard to beat and features such as stereo sound and a 10 frames per second burst mode help to place it at the top end of the group. Panasonic have packed in just about every current feature you can think of. You should find picture quality very good in most circumstances. There is plenty of very strong competition if you are looking to buy this type of camera, but the Lumix DMC TZ30 compares very well against its rivals.

Picture quality is very good. With a few bells and whistles missing such as GPS and Full High Definition Movies, Sony have been able to shave money off the price of the camera. The lens still provides you with a lot of scope and some of the missing features help to keep this camera that bit easier to use.

Style and design is very impressive and the features on offer give you more or less everything you are likely to want in a point and shoot pocket camera and a bit more on top. It can be very hard to find the perfect touch screen so if touch control is important to you then this camera is well worth a place on your short list.

For a camera with this price tag picture quality could be that bit better, but you are unlikely to be troubled by this unless you are planning to make seriously large prints. The Cybershot DSC WX100 faces a fair amount of competition. What it has on its side is its combination of up to date features and its speedy responses. These make it well worth considering if you are looking for a pocket camera with plenty of zoom.
