Touchscreen LCD in an ultra-compact, ultra-wide, very capable camera As the first Canon Digital ELPH to offer a touchscreen LCD, the PowerShot SD980 IS also offers a 5x zoom range extending from 24-120mm equivalent, a 12.1-megapixel CCD image sensor, super intelligent automatic features and a very small, pocketable body. The Canon SD980's Smart Auto mode does a good job of assessing common-yet-tricky exposure situations and choosing the best preset mode, and the capable Face, Blink and Motion Detection technologies ensure great portraits. And the Canon SD980's widescreen 3.0-inch PureColor LCD monitor is bright and accurate. Click here to read our Express Review of the Canon PowerShot SD980! (minimize)

High-quality travel zoom appeals to enthusiasts and novices alike
There's nothing like a pocket travel zoom digital camera when you want to get creative shot on vacation. The PowerShot SX260 HS is Canon's best attempt yet at meeting the needs of both the point-and-shooter and the enthusiast photographer, regardless of the destination. Its 20x zoom has great optical quality, and combined with its 12-megapixel sensor the Canon SX260's image quality is good enough to output a 16 x 20-inch print! What with the built-in GPS, we wish it had a little better battery life, but overall the Canon SX260 is looking pretty good. Click here for our Canon SX260 HS review! (minimize)

An all-around strong waterproof performer with added Wi-Fi
The Nikon AW110 proved to be an overall good waterproof model that feels great in the hands, features an interface that's easy to navigate, shoots very good underwater stills and video and boasts a nice design with an ultra-cool battery door. The addition of built-in Wi-Fi for easy sharing and file transferring makes the AW110 even more versatile than the previous model. Check out our 2013 Best Waterproof Cameras shootout for our Nikon AW110 review. (minimize)

Entry-level, versatile superzoom makes taking pictures fun and easy
Boasting a 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and a 26x optical zoom lens, the Pentax X-5 offers family, travel and beginning photographers a serious-looking, but ultimately easy-to-use camera that can capture good photos at a long distance. The camera features a ton of preset modes and automated functions that make picture taking fun and simple. And the X-5's 22-580mm equivalent range can bring the action up nice and close. Though it may look and feel like a DSLR, the X-5 is clearly not geared for enthusiasts wanting advanced photographic capabilities or DSLR-like image quality. While the X-5 delivers crisp, detailed images in good light -- most likely where casual photographers would use it most -- it doesn't fare as well at higher ISOs and when shooting in dim or overcast conditions. It's also a slow camera to operate, especially for candid work. Still, at its price point and with its point-and-shoot lineage, the Pentax X-5 does a lot of things right, and ranks as one of the best entry-level superzoom models we've tested.
