The Best Point and Shoot Camera Of the Year Is…

As with just about every other segment of the technology market, digital cameras saw quite a few advancements and enhancements in the last 300 some-odd days, so it’s only fitting that we take a look back and determine which camera was the best of the best. Obviously, it wouldn’t be fair to compare DSLRs with point-and-shoots, so we’re just going to look at the latter for the purposes of this post.

The guys at DigitalCameraInfo.com have compiled a few comparisons for us to consider, not naming a single camera as the absolute best point-and-shoot of the bunch. Instead, they break it down based on a few critical factors that may make or break your purchasing decision.

By and large, it looks like Canon and Sony have come out on top. Here are the five categories and their five respective winners.

Resolution: Fuji FinePix F50fd
Image Noise: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T100
Color Accuracy: Canon PowerShot A570 IS
Low Light: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H7
Video: Canon Powershot S5 IS

I can totally vouch for this last choice, because I am the proud owner of that camera’s predecessor, the S3 IS.
