Image quality is good rather than great, but the Nikon S9900 is packed with great features and the price is right.
Sony's latest premium compact, the CyberShot HX90, also has a travel zoom companion - the WX500
Lots of great features, high image quality in tricky conditions and a competitive price – the Nikon S9700 is a Best Buy compact
Fujifilm XQ2 review
Not much use for video, but the Fujifilm XQ2 strikes an excellent balance of image quality, compactness and price.
Sony CyberShot HX90, HX90v review - hands on
Nikon S9900 review
Panasonic SZ10 review
Well-conceived with its 12x zoom and selfie-friendly screen, but the Panasonic SZ10 lacks the quality where it counts.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 review
The smallest CSC to date, and one of the best too
Panasonic LX100 review - a compact tour de force
Comes top for image quality, performance, video quality, controls – the LX100 is a tour de force.
Canon G7 X review
The Canon G7 X delivers SLR quality in a truly pocketable package, and the price is right.
Panasonic TZ70 review
Solid image quality and lots of useful features, but the Panasonic TZ70 costs more than its direct rivals.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 review
Stylish, highly accomplished and brimming with features, the DMC-GX7 is a stunning CSC
Fujifilm X30 review
No game changer, but the Fujifilm X30 is competitively priced and a real pleasure to use
Fujifilm X20 review
Classy and capable, this premium compact justifies its high price
Sony WX350 review
A superb balance of zoom range, camera size and price, the Sony WX350 delivers the image goods, too
Nikon S9700 review
Canon Ixus 265 HS review
The Canon Ixus 265 HS is a likeable camera at an attractive price, but the smart design is its only stand-out feature
Canon Ixus 155 review
A low price for such a stylish camera, but the Canon Ixus 155 is still a false economy
Nikon S6800 review
A well-conceived package, but the Nikon S6800's inconsistent start-up times put us off
Sony HX60 review
Packed with impressive features, but the Sony HX60's image quality might not match expectations
Samsung WB350F review
A bit rough around the edges, but the Samsung WB350F has the quality where it counts, and for a great price
Sony RX100 III review
Small but perfectly formed, the Sony RX100 III makes a modern classic even better
Sony WX220 review
The Sony WX220 is a tiny point-and-shoot camera with lots of charm
