The Bottom Line Despite its no-frills feature set, the Canon PowerShot SD600 delivers quality photos and strong performance in a small package. Nice photo quality, improved autofocus performance, and a very compact design make the Canon PowerShot S110 a solid option if you're looking for something between a point-and-shoot and an enthusiast compact. But if you can find them cheaper, the S100 or S95 are still good alternatives. The Canon PowerShot SX160 IS is a good, inexpensive travel-zoom option for those wanting more control over results or who are just getting into photography and don't want to empty their wallets. It has its limitations, but the Canon PowerShot SX500 IS is a good choice for zoom addicts on a budget.
