Here's where you find the best of the best, our top digital cameras across the board.
The Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II has some solid capabilities and a standout lens, but the overall experience just doesn't live up to its price.
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.
For those who crave an enthusiast compact with more zoom range, the Olympus Stylus 1 should be high on your list for its excellent balance of performance, design, and features.
Equipped with the latest X-Trans sensor, the XQ1 is priced for folks who want better-than-snapshot photo quality but won't miss a viewfinder.
The company's latest interchangeable-lens camera is a first step on the now well-traveled path of retro designs. The Lumix DMC-GX7 sounds like more than just a me-too update of the GX1, though.
Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V is an excellent compact megazoom suitable for snapshooters and enthusiasts, though the latter might be turned off by some aspects of the camera.
The Fujifilm XF1 is one of the nicest-looking point-and-shoots available and it performs well, too. But its photos and features might not please some enthusiasts.
While many have traded in their point-and-shoots for smartphones, this 30x zoom (big) pocket camera gives you plenty of reasons to still carry one.
If you're very picky about photo quality and prefer autofocus to manual -- but don't care about a viewfinder -- the Nikon Coolpix A is probably worth the money. Otherwise, wait for the price to drop.
A great enthusiast compact for manual-focusing fans.
