The Canon PowerShot ELPH 115
If you are looking for a budget point-and-shoot, Canon is a good brand to stick with. The 330, regularly $150, is $135 this week at Amazon. This nice compact includes a 10x optical zoom and wi-fi.
This Canon compact is nicely priced, yet still offers a good set of features. You won't get as much speed for this price, but it's a nice camera considering the price. Amazon has it on sale this week for $99, which is about $70 off.
Extended Zoom Cameras
The Fujifilm X-S1
We gave the Canon SX280 an A for its compact zoom capabilities—in fact, it's ranked first out of all our $200 to $300 cameras. Regularly priced for about $300, Amazon and BuyDig have this camera for $50 off this week.
The Pentax K-50
The D7100 is an excellent DSLR for professionals just starting out or serious enthusiasts. It has plenty of manual controls and excellent image quality. The kit with an 18-140mm and 55-300mm lenses, a bag, DVD and 32 GB card is $1,626.95 at B&H, or the body-only is $1,096.95.
A nice entry-level DSLR, the D3200 is listed at under $500 on Amazon this week.
Pentax makes some excellent, weather-sealed DSLRs. B&H is offering $80 off either the kit or the body-only.
Sony's tiny DSLR, the A3000 is a DSLR like no other, but still a good choice for when space (and price) is a premium. It's $50 off at B&H this week.
The Nikon 1 J3
The Nikon 1 is among the most compact mirrorless options. This week, save $200 on the 1 J3 at Amazon.
