You have the right budget to get yourself a feature-packed compact or a mid-range standard point and shoot. The best Canon digital cameras under 300 come with simple, easy shooting modes, sharp images, and quick response times. Moreover some of them also manage to offer an enviable combination of 14 megapixel resolution and stabilized 14x zoom. Even lower zoom models include optical image stabilizer. Sift carefully, and you’ll find not only 720p HD video shooting capability with the option to zoom while filming, but also a widescreen monitor. Of course never loose sight of the all-important purpose, whatever the salesman harps on the best Canon digital cameras under 300 - the camera should be user-friendly yet powerful enough to let you capture some excellent images.
