Are you looking for a Canon camera that takes quality photos and videos? If you're travelers and adventures like we are, then you know that there are a lot of incredible moments worth capturing.

The breathtaking beaches in the Caribbean, the amazing sites and scenery in Florence, Tokyo, Rome, Vienna and Procida, even those tasty Caribbean cocktails are all worth capturing.

Even if you're just looking for a good Canon camera to capture special moments with your family and friends this may be of interest to you as well.

One of the things most people consider when making a purchase is price and we have also thought about that when we made this list.

These Canon cameras can create breathtaking photos and videos and are price-friendly. However, while price is also one of the consideration, it does not mean that these are cheap cameras, because quality matters.
