The Canon PowerShot Elph 500 HS is a top notch compact camera across the board Its fast, produces stellar images and video, and includes a touch screen interface that s simple to use. Its a little pricey for a pocket camera, though, and for 50 less the 300 HS performs almost as well. (But you wont get the touch screen.) The Nikon Coolpix S4000 179.95, 3 stars offers a touch screen for a lot less money, but overall, its performance pales in comparison. If a touch screen is a must, and youre willing to pay 300, the 500 HS is about the best you can find.
