Compact and bridge cameras

What's the best compact or bridge camera for me?

For a pocket-sized camera, look no further than a compact camera. They’re ideal for taking with you on holidays and day trips or vlogging. Auto controls take the guesswork out of which settings to choose, so you’ll get great results every time. For something with extra zoom power, a viewfinder, and controls, a bridge camera is a great alternative.

Superzoom and tough cameras

Whether it’s a free kick at your kid’s Sunday league game or bird watching at your local nature reserve, a compact superzoom camera will let you take high quality photos and videos of your subject. They’re also usually small and lightweight enough to tuck into your bag or pocket.

For tiny hands or beach trips, a tough compact camera or waterproof compact camera means once less thing to worry about. They’re designed to withstand drops, dust, and water – you might even be able to snap some underwater photos.

High performance cameras

A high-performance compact camera offers extra control over your photos without the bulk of a heavy camera. You’ll be taking photos through a premium lens for sharp shots, more shooting options such as manual controls, and they also benefit from having a larger sensor for great quality photographs.

Or what about an instant camera?

Instant cameras come with shots already included, so you can get snapping straight away with no waiting about. And instant print cameras produce prints just seconds after you capture them.

Fun, bright and colourful Instax instant cameras are easy to point and shoot, even one-handed. That means you can still get those perfect party shots when you’re holding a slice of birthday cake.

Polaroid instant photo cameras are famous for their snap-and-share instant printing functionality. Plus, some models come with built-in Bluetooth, so you can share your snaps with nearby devices.
