Travel zoom cameras are a compromise between a superzoom and ultra compact. Most ultra compacts offer very little in the way of zoom and most super-zooms offer little in the way of pocketability. The travel zoom fits in between - offering a small compact size and great zoom at the same time. The travel zoom class is one of the most versatile, providing rich functionality, such as wide angle lenses, GPS and good optical zoom and the convenience of a small package. For most people the travel zoom class offers the perfect compromise and is a great place to start your digital camera search.

Snapsort's definition of a travel zoom camera is any compact camera (who's definition is based on the size of the camera) that has at least 8x optical zoom.
