With new announcements coming every month throughout the rest of the year, the compact camera market has seen well over 130 new additions this year. The good news is that you're sure to find a perfect camera for absolutely anyone on your holiday shopping list this year. Check out our list of the Top 10 compact digital cameras on the market today (as of December 2011).
Canon PowerShot S100
This fall's Canon PowerShot S100 improved upon its wildly popular predecessors with a complete overhaul of the imaging system, though the super-compact body design remains very similar (save for the welcome addition of a small grip, as well as a new silver color option). The S100 sports a wider and longer 5x zoom lens and includes a built-in GPS receiver to enable automatic geotagging. The ability to zoom while shooting video is a nice addition too.
