Best Buys: Touchscreen Compact Cameras

Group Test So how did they do? At £120, the Nikon Coolpix S4000 offers great value for money and is a great way into the world of touchscreen cameras. But serious snappers will lament the lack of an optical image stabilisation system, no HDMI port, and disappointing picture quality.

The Fujifilm Finepix Z700 EXR is another camera that offers a lot for your money, but picture quality lets it down. Samsung’s ST5500 is an interesting offering and its connectivity features are second-to-none. A shame though, that Samsung uses MicroSD cards, and some of its touchscreen operations are a little sluggish.

Notching up the Reg Hardware award is Canon’s Ixus 210, which has a superb screen, a good set of features and operates like a dream. The Canon certainly gave the Sony a good run for its money though.

Sony’s Cybershot DSC-TX7 is the most expensive, but you do get lots of great features, good performance and superb handling, and for this reason, it’s our Editor’s Choice. ®
