The Bottom Line 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. For those who want more camera than their smartphone offers without sacrificing the easy sharing, the Samsung WB250F Smart Camera is a good, affordable choice. With its long lens and compact size, plus extras like built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, the Nikon Coolpix S9500 is a very good point-and-shoot travel companion. For those who value a long zoom lens, AA batteries, and saving a few bucks, the Nikon Coolpix L820 might be your point-and-shoot.
