Compact cameras are very easy to use, and make a great choice for casual or beginner photographers. Ranging from ultra-compact point-and-shoots to larger models with manual controls, here are the top reviewed pocket-sized cameras on the market this year.

1. Canon PowerShot A3300 IS. With good image quality, optical stabilization, and creative filters, the PowerShot A3300 IS offers quite a bit more than your average camera. It's easy to use, takes good photos without any hassle, and even throws in a few higher-end creative modes to play around with.

2. Sony Cyber-Shot WX10. This ultra compact Sony Cyber-Shot WX10 packs a 7x zoom lens, 3D shooting, and smooth 1080i video--into a very small package. It also offers three separate ways to capture 3D images, 1080i video capture at 60 frames per second, and modes for low-light shooting, panorama images, and backlight correction.

3. Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS. The PowerShot SD4000 IS boasts impressive image quality and lens capabilities that are comparable to many professional cameras. Casual shooters who want access to controls beyond auto and scene modes will be delighted with its excellent performance.

4. Nikon CoolPix S9100. The Nikon CoolPix S9100 will delight novice and experienced shooters alike, despite its lack of manual controls. Thanks to great image quality and creative controls, just about anyone will find this camera a pleasure to use. If you're looking for a long-zoom camera that can fit into your pocket, is very easy to use, rarely takes a bad photo, and doesn’t get boring, the Coolpix S9100 is one of your best choices.

5. Samsung SH100. With a range of wireless sharing and remote-control options, the Samsung SH100 has a hefty feature set for a low budget camera. This ultracompact model distinguishes itself from the bargain-bin pack with its fun extras, and solid image and video quality. But it's mainly for young, casual shooters, with a toy-like build and lack of manual controls.

6. Casio Tryx. The shape-shifting Tryx offers exceptional performance. The Tryx is equal parts camera, camcorder, and Voltron Starshooter. This model works best when you utilize its twistable frame to overcome awkward lens placement and controls when employing it as a normal camera.

7. Nikon CoolPix P300. The Nikon CoolPix P300 provides exceptional hardware and performance for its price, and includes an F1.8 lens, manual controls, and a very user-friendly interface. It’s also great for low-lighting situations.

8. Fujifilm FinePix Z800 EXR. The Fujifilm FinePix Z800 EXR offers a nice touchscreen interface, fast autofocus, and great image stabilization. Its incredibly myriad of playback options coupled with its intuitive and easy-to-use touchscreen make it a perfect choice as a touchscreen camera for tight budgets.

9. Canon Elph 500 HS. The Elph 500 HS has excellent image quality, ultrawide-angle-lens, and range of shooting modes. Thanks to its versatile shooting features, well-done UI, and bright F2.0 lens, it's an excellent choice for anyone seeking a touchscreen-controlled compact camera.

10. Canon PowerShot S95. The PowerShot S95 is a great camera to start out with. The best features include its pocketable size and a compelling blend of automated and manual controls. The S95's lack of physical buttons means that you have to perform a bit more menu-diving to access manual controls than with the other cameras in this list, but the control ring compensates by making many of the manual settings more easily accessible.
