Canon, $449 canon.com.au

★★★ Many small cam­eras are good in low light, but this cam­era is ex­cep­tional. The last two let­ters of the Canon IXUS 310HS name stand for ‘‘high sen­si­tiv­ity,’’ as this com­pact cam­era has an aper­ture of f2.0, let­ting lots of avail­able light on to its sen­sor. As a re­sult, this shooter can take clear pho­tos even in dark set­tings, such as in­door Mother’s Day cel­e­bra­tions in­volv­ing cakes and can­dles. The top-of-therange IXUS model also of­fers a 12.1-megapixel res­o­lu­tion, 24mm wide-an­gle lens, 4.4x zoom, and light sen­si­tiv­ity up to 3200 ISO. How­ever, Canon fans must adapt to its 3.2-inch touch­screen. While it’s handy when tap­ping to fo­cus on items, us­ing it to se­lect modes and set­tings can re­quire pa­tience and per­sis­tence.
