Why they're great

  • Small and lightweight, they're the most practical for everyday or travelling
  • Compact cameras are really simple to use, with little set-up required
  • Want to save not splurge? You can pick up a compact for less than £70

But consider

  • Smaller sensors mean photos have a lower image quality compared to CSCs or DLSRs
  • LCD screens instead of viewfinders can make composing shots less accurate
