The Bottom Line The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H90 is a fine choice for those wanting a compact 16x zoom lens for casual use. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H90 is a fine choice for those wanting a compact 16x zoom lens for casual use. If you miss having a zoom lens, but don't want to add too much bulk and weight to your travels, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 is a very good choice. 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. Wi-Fi connectivity and a new processor help make Canon's PowerShot SX280 HS one of the top compact megazooms available. But you'd better load up on batteries.
