Canon's slim PowerShot SX260 fits a nice 18x optical zoom within the 1.02 inch profile. Behind the sleek exterior though, are features like wi-fi and NFC and a big handful of creative filters. The Canon HS System has been designed for better low light performance. The $250 price point sits towards the upper end of the consumer compact though, and we wouldn't mind seeing a bit larger sensor than the 1/2.3” or a brighter lens. It does, however, have a nice 10.fps burst shooting mode, a long 290 shot battery and compact size. Regardless, it's still a quality camera for the price and has a lot of welcome features.
