The Canon EOS Rebel T6 (aka the EOS 1300D) hits the basics for a low price, but that's about it.
For a step up in photo quality or performance from a phone or compact, the Canon EOS Rebel T7i/800D remains a fan favorite.
The EOS 650D is Canon's best entry-level dSLR to date, but with several interchangeable-lens compacts offering similar touchscreen features, higher resolutions and a healthy range of lenses, there are too many lower-priced alternatives to make it a no-questions-asked must-buy. The prices below are for the EOS 650D plus kit kens.
The Canon EOS 1100D offers a great way for beginners to get into the world of digital-SLR photography, without needing to sell a lung. Its build quality could be better, though.
The Canon PowerShot A4000 IS is a very compact camera that's easy to use, with dedicated help screens for beginners. It features a high resolution and a long zoom but there's more noise in the results than there ought to be, and some light streaking in movies. While very well priced, spending a little more would pay dividends.
Although the Canon Digital IXUS 75 doesn't have many whistles and bells, the large screen and smart styling easily make up for what is by today's standards an undistinguished spec sheet. Above all, picture quality is excellent for this size of compact
The Canon EOS 600D might not be the swankiest camera in the world but it's a well-balanced, competitively priced digital SLR with a knack for making expert photography highly accessible.
It would be a mistake to dismiss the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS compact superzoom as an incremental update to the SX210 IS. It's powerful, flexible, straightforward and fun to use.
Packed with features, including over 50 scene modes, GPS, a long zoom and an HD mode worthy of the name, the Canon PowerShot SX260 HS is one of the most capable pocket cameras on sale right now.
Canon continues its habit of creating well-made cameras with a select few features on board. There's nothing earth-shattering on offer here -- just a solid, simple camera that takes lovely, stabilised pictures and movies. It's all the better for it
Canon's attempt to trump all comers in the superzoom market with the PowerShot SX30 IS and its 35x optical zoom is largely successful, although it suffers from inherent compromises and the same plasticky build that plagues its predecessors.
A great performance from this diminutive snapper proves that good camera design comes down to much more than merely cramming in as many megapixels as the sensor will allow. Its downsides are few and far between, making the Canon IXUS 230HS our favourite ultra compact on sale today.
With the Digital IXUS 200 IS, Canon seems to have aimed for steady evolution rather than technical innovation. The 200 is a perfectly decent camera, but it's far from a must-have
With built-in Wi-Fi and reliably high image quality, there's much to like about the latest addition to Canon's point-and-shoot IXUS lineup. There was some noise at middling sensitivities, but otherwise the 255 HS performed well in my tests.
A return to form for the IXUS line, the Canon IXUS 510 HS is one of the best-looking cameras you can buy, and if you do, you won't be disappointed with its output. Vivid colours, fine detail and a good zoom make this camera a great choice.
After the slick angles and chic lines of recent IXUS', the bubbly, bulbous curves of the Canon Digital IXUS 970 IS have us nonplussed. We hate to judge a camera just on its looks, but the lack of features don't give us much choice. Still, if you've fallen in love with this cheery snapper, you haven't wasted your money
Go into any camera store and you won't be able to move for pocket-friendly super-slim cameras, practically all of which are cheaper than the Canon Digital IXUS 100 IS. But the 100 IS has class in abundance. This camera's styling, finish, controls and results are just right
It's Canon's first PowerShot to get 4K.
