The Canon EOS Rebel T6 (aka the EOS 1300D) hits the basics for a low price, but that's about it.
For the money, the Canon EOS Rebel T3i is a great choice for dSLR videographers--though the cheaper T2i can still suffice if you don't need the articulated LCD--and it's a solid choice for creative still shooters. But though the image quality and general shooting performance are top-notch, if you're upgrading to capture sports, kids, or pets, the T3i may not be able to keep up.
For a step up in photo quality or performance from a phone or compact, the Canon EOS Rebel T7i/800D remains a fan favorite.
It has its limitations, but the Canon PowerShot SX500 IS is a good choice for zoom addicts on a budget.
Though it's a perfectly fine entry-level camera, there are better options for the money than the Canon EOS Rebel T3.
While it's a perfectly fine camera when you're making the jump from a point-and-shoot, there are better choices than the Canon EOS Rebel T5.
The Canon PowerShot SX30 IS is a point-and-shoot camera with a 35x zoom lens. As long as you're not expecting much more than that, it's a very good megazoom.
Making the most of its three-inch LCD screen, the IXUS 65 lends itself to those who prefer to show off their photos immediately. An array of colour options gives the best possible chance to get the shot right first time, so you can make the most of the camera's slideshow presentation.
The 1000D feels like what it is: a cheap, basic dSLR. It's perfectly competent, produces good quality pictures and has all the controls that keen photographers will want as they gain experience. But while Canon's used the opportunity to improve on the old EOS 400D in many areas, the new camera does have a cheaper feel
The Canon EOS 350D is an exceptionally small and lightweight camera designed for amateur dSLR owners, but it delivers the responsiveness and image quality you'd expect from a semipro model.
The 500D is a very capable camera that is ideal for someone entering the world of digital SLRs. The inclusion of high-definition video adds even more appeal to the already good-looking package.
The Canon PowerShot SX260 HS' wider, longer lens, a few much-needed design tweaks and excellent photo quality add up to one pretty great compact superzoom.
The Canon PowerShot G7 X would jump from very good to excellent if it could just pick up the pace.
The PowerShot S95 is an excellent compact camera that will complement any photographer's arsenal, provided you don't need super-fast performance specs.
Still the Godfather of compact cameras, the Canon G10 is a worthy successor to the G9. A wideangle lens, accessible controls and a list of features as long as your arm put dSLR power in your pocket
Despite its no-frills feature set, the Canon PowerShot SD600 delivers quality photos and strong performance in a small package.
For most people, the excellent photo quality of the Canon PowerShot SD790 IS will more than make up for any slight performance deficiencies or minor shortcomings.
If you need an ultracompact camera for your pocket or purse, strongly consider the Canon PowerShot SD780 IS.
