Best Compact Travel Zoom Cameras

Digital Photography Review has published a Group Test of six travel zoom compact cameras.

The two that come top of the heap are the Canon SX230 HS and Nikon S9100, both available for around £200.

Summary of the Summary:

"The Canon and Nikon provide enormous versatility, meaningful manual control, and good image quality, in relatively small, portable bodies. If we could combine the strengths of the two into one camera, we'd take the Nikon's lens (and in-camera CA correction), LCD screen and speed, and meld them with the Canon's excellent image quality, reliable AWB and metering systems and built-in GPS."
