Not all compact cameras are created equally, and this sharpshooting, enthusiast model from Canon is equipped to capture Valentine’s Day candlelit dinners. The PowerShot G5X uses a one-inch, 20.2-megapixel sensor, offers lowlight shooting up to 12,800 ISO, and a large aperture from f1.8 to 2.8 to let in plenty of light. Its tough body comes with a substantial grip, and plenty of advanced features, including an exposure dial, OLED viewfinder, and articulated 3inch touchscreen. It also offers NFC and wi-fi connectivity for sharing online. It won’t shoot 4K video, but this is a solid, pocketable shooter.
