Holiday gift guide: Best compact digital cameras
- — 26 November, 2010 11:08
Whether you're looking for a sub-$200 compact digital camera for everyday use, or a more expensive compact camera that has manual features, we've got you covered.
Buying a camera for the holidays can be a trying experience as there are so many models to choose from, with many different capabilities and price points. In this round-up, we selected a few inexpensive cameras that we think can get the job done, as well as some more advanced compacts that get the job done and then some.
If all you want is to buy a camera for your kids or grandparents, then something like the Canon PowerShot A490 is perfect; if you want to buy a more advanced camera either for yourself or someone special, then you should spend a little more and check out the fantastic little Canon PowerShot S95, which offers lots manual features in a small and elegant package.
9 / 10
The 8X-optical-zoom Kodak EasyShare M580 serves up great exposure quality and easy controls, at the expense of manual settings. It's a versatile camera for the price, but it falls short on exciting extras.
