1. Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS (previously #1)  Still reigning supreme is the ELPH 300 HS. It hits a sweet spot budget and feature-wise, with a 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, DIGIC 4 processor and 1080 HD video. We recently reviewed its successor, the also top-ten-worthy ELPH 110 HS.

Canon G1 X 2. Canon PowerShot G1 X (first time on the list) – Jumping to the top of the list after a CES debut is the G1 X PowerShot. It combines a larger-than-average sensor with a 4x zoom fixed lens and wraps it all up in a (fairly) compact package. The G1 X also shoots 1080 HD video.

Nikon 1 J1

3. Nikon 1 J1 (previously #4) The 1 J1 got a slight boost in last month’s rankings, still offering a sleeek form factor, 10 megapixel CX format sensor and compatibility with many fantastic Nikkor lenses thanks to a separate adapter. Nikon 1 J1 Review | Nikon 1 J1 User Opinions

4. Canon PowerShot SX40 HS (previously #3) – The PowerShot SX40 is a DSLR-style ultrazoom packing a massive 35x optical zoom lens. It boasts up to 8 fps burst shooting thanks in part to a powerful DIGIC 5 processor. Canon PowerShot SX40 HS Review | Canon PowerShot SX40 HS User Opinions

5. Canon PowerShot SX130 IS (previously #5) Despite an update in the SX150, the budget-oriented PowerShot SX130 remains in our top five yet another month with a 28-360mm equivalent zoom lens and 720p HD video. Canon PowerShot SX130 IS Review | Canon PowerShot SX130 IS User Opinions
