Canon PowerShot SX210
The hunt for a
new compact digital camera could end up being harder than expected. Aggravatingly demanding I might add. No one reviewer loves all cameras. So if you are reading this review, and are continuing tp search, I can feel your pain. The general conclusion is that there is
no such thing as a perfect point and shoot camera that can do it all.

So decide on your must-haves and browse through the available cameras that are left.
