Canon PowerShot ELPH 150 IS
The Canon ELPH 150 certainly isn't perfect, but if there's no wiggle room in the budget, it's a top option.
By Digital Admin, Last updated on: 6/5/2014

Canon has three compact cameras that are all priced about $20 apart with a few subtle differences. The Canon ELPH 150 is more expensive than the similar ELPH 140 and 135 but has a little bit more to offer, including a better zoom (10x instead of 8x) and a higher resolution. The more megapixels do make this camera a tad slower than the 16 megapixel versions, but not by much. With a 2.2 fps burst mode, it's on the slower side, but that's expected for the price. The macro-focusing capability of up to .4 inches from the front of the lens is excellent for this category and price. With the older versions were introduced at a much higher price point, the Canon ELPH 150 is a pretty good camera for the price tag. You'll get better performance from the ELPH 340 or a lot more speed from the Nikon S6800, but the ELPH 150 is a good option if there's no wiggle room on price.
