Black Hat 2014
Here's where you find the best of the best, our top digital cameras across the board.
Some fun new shooting options for instantly telling stories with your photos and movies, and NFC for easy Wi-Fi setup make the N100 more interesting than the original.
Though there's nothing extraordinary about it, the SX600 HS is a solid choice for snapshooters wanting a simple step up from a smartphone without sacrificing on-the-go sharing.
The camera maker's top compact megazoom gets a new lens, NFC, and full HD movie capture at 60p.
The Canon PowerShot N100's photos and performance are a step in the right direction for point-and-shoots, but the N100 design needs a bit more work and perhaps fewer novelties.
If you're looking for more than just a simple snapshot experience from a compact zoom camera, the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS should be on your short list, despite a couple shortcomings.
The new ultracompact megazooms have some novel autoshooting capabilities and improved wireless functionality that may bring back smartphone snapshooters.
The budget-friendly 30x zoom returns to Canon's PowerShot lineup minus some features, but with a newer image processor.
If you hate AA batteries, but like inexpensive compacts with manual controls, the 16x zoom Canon PowerShot SX170 IS takes a good photo. Otherwise, seek out its predecessor, the SX160 IS.
A change in sensor brings the 30x zoom Canon PowerShot SX510 HS' photo and movie quality as well as its shooting performance up a notch.
While the Canon PowerShot G16 is better than the G15 and remains a nice enthusiast compact, its low-light photo quality disappoints for the money.
