DPReview has picked its 5 best compact cameras for advanced amateurs. It writes:

"There's a long tradition of high-quality compact cameras going back more than a hundred years, and even now, in the days of digital, there are some incredibly capable compact cameras on the market.

"Shop carefully and you can get excellent image quality, full manual control and plenty of other bells and whistles, provided you don't mind paying a little more than you might for the average point and shoot.

"Top-notch lenses, great sensors and plenty of control are the hallmarks of every one of our top five recommended compact cameras for enthusiasts."

Their picks: The Fujifilm X100S (pictured above), the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II, the Olympus Stylus 1, the Canon G16, and the Fujifilm X20.
