Compact Cameras

Compact cameras are self-contained image-making machines. With a lens attached rather than an interchangeable lens mount, compact digital cameras give you everything you need to start shooting from the moment you take them out of the box. It’s a wide category, encompassing everything from affordable point-and-shoots to premium compacts beloved by professionals.

Smaller and more straightforward than DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, compact cameras are great for street photography, travel and a whole lot more. There are lots of different types from various manufacturers – on this page we’ll take you through them to help you find the right compact for you.
