Best Point and Shoot Cameras (2018): Canon, Sony, Olympus
PowerShot G7 X Mark II
This Canon sits right in the sweet spot for price, features, and image quality. At $650, it’s relatively affordable too. The G7 X captures detailed images thanks to a big 1-inch sensor, optical stabilization, and 4.2x zoom. The tilting touchscreen and built-in Wi-Fi increase its utility. I appreciate the wide selection of controls given the compact size—Canon found room for an exposure compensation dial, as well as a big front dial around the lens. Even though it’s easily stuffed into a pocket, this petite device sports a comfy, confidence-inspiring rubber front grip and rear thumbrest that make it satisfying to hold.
