Our review proceeds from three key assumptions:
1) Because "photos always turn out much better when you have a camera on hand to take the picture," pocket-friendly cameras offer significant advantages over bigger DSLRs; and
2) These days, most point-and-shoots offer pretty good image quality; and
3) The most significant differentiator between point-and-shoot cameras is ease-of-use, as dictated by the design of the camera's user interface (tactile feel, switch positioning, screen menus, etc).
So which camera won our point-and-shoot shootout? Read all about it!
