The Canon PowerShot SX420 IS is a fixed lens point and shoot digital camera.  The 20.0MP 1/2.3″ CCD image sensor (with DIGIC 4+ image processor) gives you very high resolution, crisp and clear photos. It shoots video in HD 720p at 25 fps, which is good for most video applications, but not the best you can get. The SX420 IS has a 42x optical zoom which is the equivalent to a 24-108mm focal length.  Built in Intelligent IS Image Stabilization reduces shaking while walking or zoomed in. Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC allows you to share your photos and movies with any linked smartphone or tablet wirelessly. You can also remotely control the camera from your mobile device using the Camera Connect app. On the rear of the camera is a  3.0″ 230k-dot rear LCD monitor for composing your photos, changing camera settings and reviewing photos and videos you’ve already taken. This camera uses a rechargeable battery (NB-11LH)- one battery and a battery charger are included, but it’s a good idea to have at least one additional battery to swap out if you’re going to be taking lots of photos and/or video. Compared to other similar cameras, this is one of the lighter options at .72 pounds.

The Canon Powershot SX530 is another fixed lens option, and also has the Canon DIGIC 4+ Image Processor, at 16MP. The 50X optical zoom gives you the equivalent of a 24–1200mm lens, meaning you can get amazing quality shots from a great distance. This offers the same Wifi with NFC as the Powershot SX420 above, but records video at a higher quality 1080P Full HD. Slightly heavier than the SX420 at .97 pounds but still small and light enough for a medium sized purse.

Niklon’s Coolpix B500 takes great photos with it’s 16MP low-light sensor with Lens-Shift Vibration Reduction. The incredible 40x optical zoom gives you super telephoto power, then Dynamic Fine Zoom, an enhanced digital zoom, effectively doubling to an 80x zoom. This shoots full HD 1080P video with stero sound and has a flip up LCD so you can hold the camera at various angles and still see what you’re shooting.  Built-in Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth low energy (BLE) are great for transferring and managing photos with a smartphone app. This weighs a bit more than the Canon cameras at 1.19 pounds but should still be a manageable day to day camera. Unlike the two Canons, this camera uses 4 AA batteries instead of a rechargeable battery, so be sure to bring extra.
