The Best Point and Shoot Cameras 2015

How does it work?

We begin by building a list of point and shoot cameras with more than 50 ratings. This jumps straight to established products. We see how they've actually performed, according to many owners.

We remove any point and shoot cameras with less than a 4 star rating. We now have a list of the higher rated models, with a credible amount of opinion.

After sorting the product list by ratings, we publish this Top 5.
