The Canon ELPH line has long been a top competitor in the point and shoot category for their competitive image quality. The 2013 model is also expected to impress, with the addition of wi-fi and a longer zoom than last year's model. Take note though, that the addition of wi-fi means going from 1080 HD video (ELPH 110) down to 720 HD and also down to a slower burst capture than the 110—so if wi-fi isn't important, go for the similiarly priced ELPH 110.

Hi, I’m Andy. I’ve been taking pictures for just about as long as I’ve been old enough to hold a camera. I studied photography in community college after high school but was encouraged to follow a career path that was more stable. I do gigs here and there on the side but never took the leap to focus my efforts full-time. When Pam reached out to me through a mutual friend, I jumped on the opportunity to be a writer. Favorite type of photography: macro and street.
