There are hundreds of compact digital cameras available on the market, with so many sophisticated options that it has become very difficult to find the model that suits us.

Whatever you are looking for, we have prepared for you a selection of what we believe to be the best compact cameras on the market in 2013.

1 – Samsung Galaxy Camera (EK-GC100)

The Samsung Galaxy Camera gives you the magic of professional digital photography with the powerful intelligence of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. A lot of people consider it as the smartest camera ever, with stunning photographic output and a range of exceptionally rich professional shooting modes, editing features and various apps.

2 – Panasonic Lumix TZ40

Panasonic has loaded the Lumix TZ40 with all its latest top-end electronics, including an 18-Megapixel BSI-CMOS sensor, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC and a new 920,000-dot multitouch screen. Basically, the TZ40 brings you everything that’s hot in the 2013 compact camera market in one top-of-the-range flagship snapper.

3 – Canon PowerShot SX280 HS

The SX280 has a 20x, 25-500mm optical zoom lens with built-in anti-shake system that features an enhanced Dynamic IS video mode with 5-axis stablizer. There’s also a 12.1 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor, 3 inch LCD screen with 460k-dot resolution, full 1080p HD Movie Mode at 60fps with stereo sound and an HDMI output.

4 – Nikon Coolpix P330

After few shy tries, Nikon has finally decided to fully enter into the wonderful world of quality compacts with the new Coolpix P330. It gives you a 5x optical zoom, a 24 to 120 mm wide-angle zoom lens, with a maximum aperture of f/1.8. It is targeted at a consumer who is looking at more control on the camera than a basic point-and-shoot, without the bulk associated with a DSLR.

5 – Canon PowerShot S110

After a very successful and critically acclaimed S100, Canon was quite prudent with the S110 aesthetically very close. Innovations are not photographic, but ergonomic: the camera is equipped with a multi-point touch screen and a wireless chip.

6 – Ricoh GR

The Ricoh GR is the latest Ricoh digital camera. Designed to fit easily into your pocket, the camera has a fixed focal length equivalent to 28mm, with this latest version featuring a much larger 16 megapixel APS-C sensor, without dramatically increasing the size of the camera.

7 – Panasonic Lumix LX7

The Lumix LX7 is the long-awaited replacement to the very popular LX5. The LX5 was well known for its low light ability, and Panasonic has improved this. With a larger sensor than most point-and-shoots and sensible 10.1 Megapixel resolution, a bright 3.7x zoom lens and 3in screen, it offers manual exposure control and full HD 1080p50/60 video.

8 – Fujifilm Finepix F800EXR

The FX800EXR has a 16 Megapixel EXR CMOS sensor, 20x zoom and 3 inch LCD screen just like the rest of the “F” line. But Fuji decided to add a Wireless Image Transfer System feature to the F800 in hopes to keep up with ever changing wireless technology.

9 – Sony Cyber-Shot WX100

First camera in its class to offer a powerful 10x optical zoom lens in a slim and stylish box. Simple to use, the Cyber​​-shot camera WX100 provides extremely detailed photos and high quality 3D and Full HD videos with a lot of creative options.

10 – Olympus XZ-2

The Olympus XZ-2 is a compact aimed at the demands of enthusiasts. Successor to the XZ-1, it sports the same 28-112mm equivalent 4x zoom with a bright f1.8-2.5 maximum aperture, but swaps its predecessor’s 1/1.63in 10 Megapixel CCD sensor with a 1/1.7in CMOS chip with 12 Megapixels. The processor is also updated to the latest TruePic V and the XZ-1’s 610k dot OLED screen is updated with a 920k dot LCD touch-screen.
