'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. '
' 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 viewing angle was excellent, with no apparent loss of contrast or colour shifts when not viewing the display straight on; this is excellent news for those who like to shoot at waist level or from above the head.'
'slim tablet-style design'
'For those who like the camera to do all the work, you will be pleased to hear that Coolpix S80 comes with a whopping 17 scene modes to muck around with. '
'while for ISO 6400, images are basically unusable. '
