'Of course, there are plenty of people who can overlook its imperfections in exchange for the heaps of wow factor the P100 packs. '
'So, if you want a camera that gives you lots of gimmicks to play with in a compact package the Nikon is a good choice.'
'The Nikon Coolpix P100 is a major step forward in terms of banishing the bane of the compact camera - image noise - though it does look fairly pricey. '
'The 3in tilt-adjustable LCD on the back of the Nikon Coolpix P100 and the huge extending lens are the only aspects that seem out of place on this otherwise well-proportioned camera - and these are hardly complaints. '
'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. '
'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. '
'Looking at the sharpness of the shots the Finepix S1800 does well for a camera with a wide angle lens, especially when the lens is zoomed out. '
'Shutter-lag is a bit disappointing at about 0.1 second when pre-focused and 0.5 seconds including focusing time.'
'Image quality not up to par with competition; Weak flash; Poor HD video results; Excessive noise above ISO 400 makes the higher options almost useless; Tiny EVF eye piece; LCD is reflective; Sporadic white balance results when using Auto setting; Lack of Aperture value control in the specified A position on the mode dial makes it difficult to control DOF (either wide open or closed down, nothing in between). '
'The Fuji S1800 will be available in February 2010 at a retail price of $229.95.'
