  • The Canon PowerShot Elph 520 HS is a good choice for those already happy with their smartphone's photos and movie clips, but looking for a cute little camera with a long zoom and faster performance.


  • The Canon PowerShot Elph 520 HS packs a 12x zoom lens into a very compact body that's sure to turn heads. But this pretty camera is hampered by a tiny sensor that produces noisy images at middle to high ISO settings.


  • The Canon IXUS 500 HS is a good attempt to marry the classic styling of the IXUS range with a big zoom lens, but the tiny controls, poor battery life, so-so image quality at high ISO speeds and the eye-watering price-tag detract somewhat from its overall appeal.


  • In summing up, whilst the Canon IXUS 220 HS is not the most innovative model of recent months to land on our test slab, all things considered it's another Recommended award from the Photographyblog team of testers for anyone looking for an undemanding good value pocket camera that will deliver decent image quality with the minimum of fuss. Exciting it may not be, but at times you just want a camera that does the job of an aide memoire and don't want to spend a fortune to get it.


  • The Canon ELPH 300 HS / IXUS 220 HS is a gorgeous little camera that seems to strike the perfect balance between size, features and ease of use. It's 2mm thinner than the ELPH 310 HS / IXUS 230 HS and slightly smaller in the other dimensions, and although that doesn't sound a lot, it makes a world of a difference in your hand, where it nestles snugly and feels rather nice too thanks to an all-over texture coating. This is a camera you really have to feel in your hand to appreciate.


  • - Limited exposure control. 8fps shooting limited to 3MP.
    - The quality of images produced exceeded expectation and go some way to rivalling higher-tech counterparts thanks to its high quality lens, 12.1MP back-illuminated CMOS sensor and Digic4 processer.


  • If you're looking for the ultimate ultracompact point-and-shoot, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX200V is probably it. Too bad its price tag is ridiculously high.


  • Whilst not perfect then nor an enthusiast's dream by any means, the Casio EX-ZR10 looks good, is priced reasonably fairly, is simple to use and moreover fun.


  • For those who just want to point and shoot in the main, but would occasionally appreciate a couple of extra gizmos at their fingertips for when they start to get bored, the EX-ZR10 comes into its own. The HDR features, Slide Panorama, slow-motion video clips and general speediness of operation impress. Sadly this is let down by corner softness at the maximum wide angle - one of the most often-used focal lengths for a compact camera.


  • Offering ease of use and a rucksack full of useful features that further enhance the status of this otherwise familiar point-and-shooter, the Casio Exilim EX-ZR10 would well serve those who value the convenience of an auto everything model with few manual features, yet just enough to prevent boredom from setting in.

    Samsung seems to have the Dual View market cornered. These unique models offer a great deal of appeal with features that fit the needs of a wide variety of users; especially for the younger masses. Overall, we enjoyed using the ST700. This model offers competitive image quality and shooting performance, loads of fun exposure modes and filters, along with a competitive price tag of $279 USD or less.


  • The latest dual-screen camera from Samsung offers plenty of bang for your buck, apart from its lackluster touchscreen.
