There's a lot to like about the Nikon Coolpix P100, but you'll need to keep your photo quality expectations in check to really enjoy it.
Joining its already abundant supply of megazoom cameras both big and small, Nikon's two new lines are almost identical to the others it offers.
The Nikon Coolpix L810 offers a lot of specs at a low price. If you need fast shooting performance, though, you'll need to spend more money.
The company is planning to ship an aggressively priced camera with a Micro Four Thirds mount.
With dual LCDs and built-in Wi-Fi, Samsung's DV150F Dual-View Smart Camera is an inexpensive problem-solver for those who like to shoot and share.
A simple ultracompact with a long lens, the Samsung PL200 isn't a standout, but shouldn't be overlooked either.
Less than the sum of its parts, the Samsung TL500 is a solid camera, but it just can't keep up with veteran players in the competitive enthusiast compact market.

A fine camera, the Canon EOS Rebel T4i's more expensive 18-135mm STM kit (or body with another STM lens) is the only version that merits an unqualified recommendation. You can probably find better alternatives if you just want a sub-$1,000 dSLR for still photography.

Feature junkies in search of a compact megazoom should get the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V.
The feature-rich Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX30V has a great mix of speed and photo quality.
It can't match some of its competition in the features department, but the Sony Cyber-shot HX300 still packs a powerful zoom lens and plenty of point-and-shoot punch.
A lot of camera, both in lens and features, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V is a solid choice for point-and-shoot users looking to do a little more than that.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H90 is a fine choice for those wanting a compact 16x zoom lens for casual use.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V has shooting options for solving common snapshot camera issues, but some users still won't be thrilled with the results.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W690 is a decent little 10x zoom camera, but similar models from Nikon, Panasonic, and even Sony itself offer more for your money.
