Just about everything you need for very little money When you're looking for a safe choice in a digital camera for only a little money, it's always a good idea to check out the low-end of the Canon ELPH line. Though the Canon SD1300 is the first of the ELPH digital cameras to dip below the $200 mark, it still has what you need to get good quality shots from a pocket camera. The Canon SD1300 has a small, smooth, metal body, a 12-megapixel sensor, a 4x zoom that starts at 28mm, optical image stabilization, and a sharp 2.7-inch LCD. Even with a reduced feature set, I don't think the Canon SD1300 is missing anything the average camera buyer would notice. Canon's done an extraordinary job pruning the SD1300 down to the essentials, while leaving the good image quality intact. Click here for our Express Review of the Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS.

The long-zoom "everywhere" camera just got smaller
Iconic and capable at the same time, the PowerShot 520 HS represents quite an evolution in Canon's classic ELPH design. Duplicating the same diminutive shape and size as its spiritual predecessors, the Canon 520 offers a 12x zoom ranging from 28-336mm with optical image stabilization. Its 3-inch LCD has a higher resolution of 461K-dots, and its simple control set and intelligent exposure modes make getting good stills and videos easy. Click here for our review of the Canon 520 HS!
