  • Wi-Fi connectivity and a new processor help make Canon's PowerShot SX280 HS one of the top compact megazooms available. But you'd better load up on batteries.


  • The Canon PowerShot SX280 HS puts 20x zoom in your pocket, along with Wi-Fi, GPS, and 1080p60 video capture. It's an ideal travel camera, and earns our Editors' Choice award.


  • Despite our quibbles with the wi-fi implementation and lack of touch-screen control, the inclusion of DIGIC 6 has brought a number of significant improvements to Canon's 2013 travel-zoom model, making the Canon PowerShot SX280 HS a real contender to the market-leading Panasonic TZ series.


  • One of the best cameras you can buy for less than $250, the svelte, 10x-zoom Canon PowerShot Elph 330 HS takes beautiful pictures and lets you send them instantaneously with integrated Wi-Fi.


  • The IXUS 255 HS / ELPH 330 HS is positioned in the middle in the IXUS / ELPH range and provides a good balance between features and performance on the one hand and price on the other. It outclasses the 16.1 Megapixel CCD sensor-based entry-level IXUS / ELPH models in every way, sporting better image quality and noise performance, a wider range of shooting modes, Full HD video, a longer zoom and a better quality screen.

    In terms of progress, it's also a better model than the 2012 IXUS 230 HS / ELPH 310 HS that it replaces.


  • The Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS is a little camera that will provide quite a few pleasant surprises. Those expecting the most basic type of point and shoot model will appreciate a camera that performs faster than other beginner-level cameras, while also providing greater image quality.


  • If you can get past the supercompact design and reimagined controls, the Canon PowerShot N is a fine point-and-shoot companion for your smartphone.


  • The Canon PowerShot N packs a neat Creative Shot mode, but it doesn't let you select your favorite filters and its design makes it a frustrating camera with which to shoot.


  • Ultimately the Canon PowerShot N misses the mark both as an alternative/companion to a smartphone and as a compact camera in its own right, and it's simply too expensive to appeal to either camp. It may be the most surprising camera of 2013, for which we applaud Canon for trying something different, but it's definitely not the most well realised, whichever way you look at it.


  • The Canon ELPH series is usually a safe bet for a cool, quality camera at a decent price, but the top end of the lineup has been pretty wonky over the past few years. Image quality is generally strong, and the lenses are either bright or packed with zoom. But Canon insists on sticking them with a crummy touchscreen, which royally screws up the user experience and drives up the price. Such is the case with the latest ELPH king, the ELPH 530 HS.


  • The Canon IXUS 510 HS is a camera that will look good in the hands of someone who desires appearance over performance. It's a camera that will attract admiring glances so someone who covets attention will be perfectly suited to the IXUS 510 HS. If you want a small camera that can take the picture of a fly sat on your safari jeep before switching to a distant elephant on the Serengeti plains without the distraction of having to walk anywhere, then this camera is perfect for you.


  • Build and image quality are both more than up to par, leaving you only with the unpleasant task of actually paying for the Canon IXUS 510 HS.
    At around £350 (about $550), it's expensive for a compact camera; in fact, it's actually a little more than Canon's cheapest DSLR, the Canon EOS 1100D, is currently selling for in some places, albeit without a lens.


  • The Canon PowerShot Elph 320 HS is a small shooter with a large touch-screen LCD and Wi-Fi. Its lens is sharp, but only covers a 5x zoom range, and the practicality of the touch screen is questionable.


  • The Canon IXUS 240 HS is an unassuming yet technologically advanced compact camera that hides a lot of features under its typically IXUS-like rectangular exterior. The touchscreen interface isn't the best that we've ever used, but the new wi-fi connectivity options make it easy to share your photos and the IXUS 240 HS certainly delivers much better quality than the average smartphone.

    The IXUS 240 HS ticks the boxes for anyone wanting a good-looking, slim, metal-bodied compact that packs in all the essentials.


  • No, this camera will never replace my DSLR, and I will not get rid of my smart phone. This camera is designed for those casual photographers who don't want to determine the settings for every image. It is designed for those that enjoy having fun with their images and like editing them in-camera. It is designed for those people who want a point and shoot that can handle itself in a multitude of situations with grace and speed. It is designed for those that crave more zoom than their smart phone could ever give them.
