The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS ($249 MSRP) is a less expensive camera in the PowerShot series, which means you'll get a lot more manual controls that from a Canon Elph, but you're still well under the $300 price point for advanced PowerShots. The SX130 has a 12x zoom, 12.1 megapixel sensor, OIS, and 720p HD video. Overall, it promises a good value.
