Don’t worry, you’re not experiencing deja vu. The top four cameras from last month’s Most Popular list are all back in the same positions again this month. These powerful compacts including the top-ranked Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS all boast advanced features like 1080 HD video. Best of all, they won’t break the bank. If you’re still looking for an all-purpose vacation camera, any of these would be a great choice.
