The Bottom Line A speedy little camera with a long lens, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ7 performs beyond its tiny price tag. If you're looking for a nice, simple ultracompact for use indoors and out, you'll want to strongly consider the Canon PowerShot Elph 300 HS. The tiny Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX50 is a lot of camera for the money, with solid shooting performance, and good photo and movie quality.
