'With a superb f/2 wide-angle lens, a 10.1-megapixel 1/1.6-inch CCD sensor, a three-inch 460k monitor, full manual exposure controls, Raw capture mode and the best image quality in its class, the LX3 was an instant hit, especially with photography enthusiasts looking for a compact camera that could rival the performance of their digital SLRs. '
'This camera doesn't leave you with the soft, slightly murky images delivered by your standard point and shoot. '
'Combine those with good HD video options, a 25mm-equivalent wide-angle lens with a 12x zoom, and a couple of new image enhancements and you've got a flexible camera for those who don't always want to lug a digital SLR with them. '
'Panasonic's TZ series has received world wide acclaim as an excellent travel companion because of a wide shooting range and hybrid recording capability of high quality photo and movie. '
'The long-range optical zoom, decent image quality and good handling are some of the highlights.'
'If you can afford the outlay, the TZ10 is an ideal camera for those looking for a versatile, compact shooting solution.'
'It offers not just peace-of-mind supplying brawn - complete with screw heads visible on the faceplate and a lens with a folded mechanism that ensures that at no point does it protrude from the camera body - but brains too.'
'The Optio W90's underwater capabilities are impressive, and it's a camera that Pentax designed as a tough, well-built model.'
'The test photo is clear and the sharpness levels are good.'
' The Fujifilm FinePix HS10 looks like the ultimate bridge camera, given its wide-angle lens with a manual 30x zoom; large tilting LCD and an electronic viewfinder; direct controls for all major settings; and shooting modes that take you from fully automatic to fully manual. '
'It has an amazingly powerful but very compact 30x zoom lens, the longest zoom range of any current camera, with a focal length range equivalent to 24-720mm, a maximum aperture of f/2.8-5.6 and manual zoom control. '
'nifty eye sensors'
'this camera is more advanced, offering users full manual exposure control, RAW format image capture, and employs a backside-illuminated (BSI) image sensor.'
'the auto focus is extremly slow, often 2+ seconds.'
'The only cons, and reason for 4 out of 5 stars is, you cant see the pictures on the display screen in the sunlight(we waited till we put it on the laptop) and I could not take a decent picture indoors. '
