2010 Best Budget P&S Cameras for Backpackers

Through extensive research, I’ve put together a list of what I think are the best budget Point and Shoot digital cameras for backpackers. A few things were kept in mind: price, weight, quality, resistance, and size. These five things are essential to all backpackers. All cameras are priced around $200USD and are not only recommended by me but also recommended by reviewers on Amazon and other top photography bloggers.  Check it out for yourself. Full details about the camera is included within each link.

Canon PowerShot SD780IS 12.1 MP

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS1 10MP

Canon PowerShot SX200IS 12 MP

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS1 12MP

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 10.1 MP

Nikon Coolpix L20 10MP

Canon PowerShot S90 10MP

Canon PowerShot SD1200IS 10 MP

What camera do you recommend? Any cameras that should be included in this list?
