The latest Compact camera reviews at PC Advisor. Compact camera user reviews, ratings, buying advice and price comparison

  • Canon Digital Ixus i zoom

    While Canon's ultracompact Ixus digicams have tended to be pricey and somewhat short on features, the models are invariably innovative, beautifully designed and easy…

    £289 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • Fuji FinePix Z2

    Getting natural-looking shots in low light without a flash is tricky – especially for ultracompact cameras, which don't tend to have high-sensitivity ISO settings.…

    £250 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • Olympus mju 700

    The mju 700 is the latest in Olympus' range of compact, no-fuss digital cameras, designed for beginners. It's attractively priced, but it lacks durability. There are…

  • Casio Exilim EX-S600

    Makers of compact digicams have turned 'pocket-sized' into an overused stock phrase. But if any camera truly deserves that accolade, it's Casio's Exilim EX-S600.

    £280 inc VAT

    Score - 9 out of 10

  • Acer CP-8660

    The CP-8660 features vaguely retro styling and a classy black-and-silver finish, and it feels every bit as nice as it looks.

    £249 inc VAT

    Score - 7 out of 10

  • Kodak EasyShare V610

    Kodak hopes strong zoom facilities and intriguing lens technology will give the V610 the lead over cheaper models.

    £350 inc VAT

    Score - 7 out of 10

  • Sanyo Xacti VPC-C6E

    One of the strangest devices we've seen in a long time, the Xacti VPC-C6E looks like a Dictaphone that's been cross-bred with a camcorder.

    £364 inc VAT

    Score - 6 out of 10

  • Nikon Coolpix S6

    The Coolpix S6 is a good-looking product – and a price tag of just £234 for a pocket-size, 6Mp, Wi-Fi-equipped camera is even more attractive.

    £234 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • BenQ DC X600

    Basing the X600 on the Pentax Optio S6 wasn't a bad idea, as the S6 was a highly capable camera and one of the prettiest compacts of recent years.

    £144 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • Canon Ixus 850 IS

    As we've come to expect from Canon's Ixus family of cameras, the 850 IS is beautifully constructed. You'll keep noticing little details long after it's been unpacked.

    £260 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • Fujifilm FinePix F31fd

    We're not easily impressed, but the FinePix F31's face-recognition feature, here given its best rendition yet in a pocket digital camera, has had us running around…

    £249 inc VAT

    Score - 9 out of 10

  • Sanyo Xacti VPC-E7

    From a stylistic point of view, the Xacti VPC-E7 isn't the most adventurous of compacts – but while the design lacks originality, the Sanyo is a handsome handful.

    £174 inc VAT

    Score - 6 out of 10

  • Fujifilm FinePix S9600 digital camera

    Compact cameras don't come much bigger than this. But despite its bulk, the S9600 is quite a handsome piece of kit.

    £350 inc VAT

    Score - 7 out of 10

  • Casio Exilim EX-Z75

    An inexpensive compact camera with a 7.2Mp sensor and 3x zoom, the EX-Z75 is the successor to the widely revered EX-Z70.

    £150 inc VAT

    Score - 9 out of 10

  • Kodak Easyshare V803

    If you need any evidence that the digital camera market is on fire, consider the Kodak V803.

    £150 inc VAT

    Score - 9 out of 10

  • Fujifilm Finepix A700

    As is typical of Fujifilm cameras, this model exhibits slightly boosted colour saturation and reasonable finer detail – providing the ISO level is kept at…

    £126 inc VAT

    Score - 6 out of 10

  • Olympus FE-210

    A bargain at less than £100, this model from Olympus produces reasonable detail and balanced colours - in ideal conditions.

    £90 inc VAT

    Score - 6 out of 10

  • Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55

    It's typical of Sony that the Cyber-shot DSC-W55 is a classy looking number. Our model came finished in a cool silver colour scheme and decorated with subtle details…

    £147 inc VAT

  • Panasonic DMC-FX12

    A stylish camera that represents outstanding value for money, we loved the Panasonic DMC-FX12 so much we handed it a PC Advisor Best Buy award.

    £170 inc VAT

  • Nikon Coolpix S10

    While all the other cameras we've tested recently follow the usual design convention of sticking the lens on the front of the camera, our review of the Nikon Coolpix…
