Best for Travel: Canon PowerShot SX720
Featuring a 40x optical zoom and intelligent IS with optical image stabilization, the Canon PowerShot SX720 is handily a five-star travel camera. The 20.3-megapixel CMOS sensor with DIGIC 6 image processor shoots stunning photography in both day and night environments. It can shoot 1080p videos and has an incredible zoom and aperture range of f/3.3-6.9.
The rear of the camera features a standardized control set with a directional pad for selecting different modes, dedicated WiFi and NFC, as well as a menu button for jumping into the full range of features. Also on the rear of the camera is the three-inch LCD that does a displays high-quality images provided the brightness is turned all the way up. Of course, turning the brightness up could have an impact on the 355-shot battery life, but that’s a small price to pay.
