Often referred to as point & shoot cameras, compacts are designed to be small, easily portable and user-friendly. Most have a retractable lens so altough tiny enough to fit in your pocket, still have a moderately long focal length. Most have a built-in flash strong enough for nearby subjects, autofocus, macro capability and a zoom lens. Picture quality is not as good as more advanced cameras and features are limited. However, compacts have come a long way in recent years and the more advanced models offer more than you'd expect from a point & shoot. Canon PowerShot G12, Fujifilm FinePix X100, Panasonic DMC-FZ45, Canon IXUS 220 HS, Fujifilm FinePix X10, Nikon Coolpix P300, Canon IXUS 115 HS and Nikon Coolpix P7100 all deserve serious consideration.
