'So Olympus is trying again to lure this lucrative audience to its Micro Four Thirds camp, this time with the more consumer-friendly designed and priced E-PL1.
'The most interesting Art Filters slow down operation (and make the movie mode virtually useless). '
'And in the eyes of many consumers the E-PL1 will best its more expensive bigger brother due to the fact that, for the first time, Olympus has included a built-in, pop-up flash, activated by a thumb switch situated at the top left-hand edge of the camera back. '
'The rounded body is difficult to grip comfortably and certainly too big to fit in a pants pocket. '
'the first ruggedized point-and-shoot camera from Canon '
'Canon claims it's water-resistant to depths of 10m.
'In that vein, one of the defining features of the D10 is it's environmental sealing. Yes, the D10 name is matched by waterproofing down to depths of 10 metres and the promise of operating in minus 10 degrees too. It also features shock resistance, so will take the odd bash.
'Another big plus for those needing high quality images, is this system works without affecting the sensitivity, so does not have the problem of increasing image noise within images. '
'It's perfect for anyone with a penchant for travelling: the Ricoh CX2 will let you take wide-angle shots of famous landmarks, and can also snap a close-up of a bird perched atop a distant statue and capture fine details, for example. '
'However, it's this sturdiness that makes the CX2 feel like a proper compact camera to anyone who is accustomed to the bulk and weight of a digital SLR. '
'It's perfect for anyone with a penchant for travelling: it will let you take wide-angle shots of famous landmarks, and can also snap a close-up of a bird perched atop a distant statue and capture fine details, for example. '
'Measuring 3.75 by 2.38 by 0.66 inches and weighing five ounces, the DSC-TX1 is small enough to fit into a coat pocket, and it won't take up a lot of room in a purse. '
'If you're all gussied up, you might as well bring a camera like Sony's fashion-conscious, 10.2-megapixel , a touchscreen camera that lets you party instead of fussing with camera settings.
'Like the T90, the TX1 isn't the quickest camera off the mark — shutter lag measures 0.3 second, and in the high-speed burst mode the TX1 captures 10 frames in rapid succession, at an interval of approximately 0.1 second between each shot. '
