  • The price of around £100 is perfect for this camera. It means it's easily accessible to many people who may be looking at their first camera but don't want the complications of a normal compact. It would make a great first camera for a younger person with the funky colours and digital filters to attract the "Instagram" generation. If you're looking for a small, light weight digital compact camera and you have around £109 to spend then you need to take a look at the Nikon Coolpix S3500 because it will fit your needs perfectly.


  • If you're looking for a cheap camera you can't go far wrong with the Nikon Coolpix S3500, particularly as most budget cameras have at most 5x optical zoom, here you'll find a 7x optical zoom lens for less than £90. It has a fairly limited set of features, but image quality isn't too bad, particularly for sharing on Facebook etc.


  • For &pound170, the features on the Nikon Coolpix S6400 are pretty good. You get a decent lens, a nicely designed compact with a glossy exterior and a touch-screen on the back. The deal breaker will be whether you think the image quality is good enough to pay out the money for.


  • The Nikon Coolpix S6400 is one of the more expensive compact cameras of its class on the market, but its speed, image quality and range of options help justify its position.

    If you're looking for a fun, carry-everywhere camera, whether that's for a beach holiday or a children's birthday party, the Nikon Coolpix S6400 won't let you down. Just make sure you have a spare battery.


  • The Nikon Coolpix S6400 packs a fast rate of high-speed shooting and decent image quality into a compact camera. It also has a decent optical zoom range, with a responsive touch screen and is available in a good range of colours. We think it's a little highly priced, particularly as a spare battery is almost certain to be a must with a life expectancy of just 160 shots per charge. Overall, it's a decent camera, but the competition is strong and there are other cameras worth checking before purchasing.


  • The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ25 is significantly cheaper than the more TZ30 model without conceding too much ground in terms of features, and it's a marked improvement on last year's TZ18 model. The range-topping TZ30 may get all the love and attention, but the more wallet friendly DMC-TZ25 is definitely worth considering if you're in the market for a pocket camera that has all the bases covered.

    While it doesn't have the most Megapixels, zoom power, or features, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS15 is still a very good compact ultra zoom camera. It offers a nice zoom lens in a compact body, along with robust performance, very good photo quality, tons of features, and Full HD video recording. And, with an average price in the $260 range, it's also a pretty good bargain.


  • The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS15 is a compact ultra zoom camera that performs better than its more expensive sibling (the ZS20), though you'll miss out on some of that cameras biggest features (zoom, GPS, 1080/60p video). The DMC-ZS15 looks a whole lot like the ZS10 that came before it, and it uses the same 16X, 24 - 384 mm lens. This lens is pretty solid, offering good sharpness across the frame and minimal purple fringing.

    The ST200F is an interesting little compact from Samsung, especially for those who are looking for a camera that is good at a little bit of everything. While it doesn't have the front-facing LCD of the higher end DV300F, Samsung has packed a lot of quality into the ST200F's (reportedly) $199 body. We only were able to see of engineering samples at CES, so it's possible the price and feature set will change, but we were impressed with what the small compact had to offer.


  • The Samsung ST200F is a camera that will cope with pretty much anything you need to take pictures of in day to day life. It's not the best looking camera around but for the price, it must be the most fully loaded. The features will give you hours of fun messing around while the actual image quality is good enough to record your favourite moments. If you're on a budget but want a camera with some new features then take a look at the Samsung ST200F.


  • The Samsung ST200F is extraordinary value for money. It reliably produces vibrant, accurate results that are a true reflection of the original subject matter. The inclusion of built-in Wi-Fi makes it even more tempting and will help all but the most picky of buyers to overlook its very few minor flaws.


  • The modestly priced, solidly built Olympus VR-340 is not without its drawbacks, but is quite capable when used in the right lighting situations.

    Like most of the fixed-lens Olympus cameras introduced at CES 2012, the VR-340 seems to be a minor update at best. Did the VR-320 really need a replacement? Only the market can decide. With slightly improved features and a lower price point, we can hardly complain, it's just not the most exciting news in the industry. Shooting with the VR-340 feels:okay. Not great, but passable. The interface can be simple for those who want it that way, but the sluggish operation will slow down experienced users.


  • The Olympus VR-340 is a pocketable camera with a decent zoom range, making it an ideal choice for taking pictures on your holidays. Image quality is OK, but nothing to get excited about and video recording isn't full 1080p HD, although you can use the magic filters. Colour reproduction is decent and if you are a camera user who struggles to grip a camera, the VR-340 is easy to grip thanks to the groove at the front.
