Canon’s 300 HS features the same 12.1-megapixel, High Sensitivity CMOS sensor as its more expensive counterpart, the 500 HS and actually ups the optical zoom to 5x. It gets a downgraded 2.7-inch LCD display, though, that’s not touch-sensitive.

Standout Spec: A 12.1MP CMOS sensor and 5x optical zoom.
