Best budget compact (<200 euros)?
Apr 6, 2013

I am looking for buying a compact as a present and have narrowed it down to the older models  below because i want few megapixels - usually meaning sharper images - and of course keep the price lower.

1. Canon Elph 500 HS (ixus 310 hs), 12MP sensor, fast F/2 Lens

2. Canon sx230 HS - 14x Zoom, 12MP sensor

3. Panasonic SZ7 - 10x zoom, 14MP sensor.

Which do you think is the best quality camera?
Is the F/2 lens of the elph 500HS really worth it? In some reviews i saw it had very soft results, and in others it looked great.
