Canon PowerShot SX260 HS | CNET rating: 4 stars out of 5 (Excellent)

The good: The Canon PowerShot SX260 HS has shooting modes for every type of photographer from casual to advanced, a useful long zoom lens with excellent image stabilization, and overall excellent photo and video quality for a compact megazoom. The bad: The SX260 HS' menus and controls can take some getting used to, its battery life is short, and photos get noticeably softer-looking indoors or in low light. The cost: $209 to $325.99 The bottom: 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 megazoom.

Compact megazoom camera review

The lenses get longer, but the bodies get smaller. Pretty amazing. These four cameras offer wide-angle lenses with long zooms, giving you a lot of shooting flexibility, but without the bulk of larger dSLR-style megazooms.
