Best Compact Digital Cameras: Group test

  • Which Compact camera will be king of the castle?

    These pocket-sized compact cameras hide impressive zooms of up to 18x. They allow for ultra-wide landscape pics and bring far-off subjects up close and personal. They’re perfect for traditional British holidays: documenting the effects of severe sunburn and watching the rain through your hotel window. Also on board: HD video and plenty of megapixels.

    Best: In low light
    Canon PowerShot SX 220 HS
    £230
    Love: Manual controls. Crisp shots at max zoom
    Hate: Dull design
