'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.'
'More unusually still at this level, the K-x’s light sensitivity settings can be boosted to a semi-pro equivalent ISO 12,800 for flash free photography in the near dark and 16:9 widescreen format HD video recording – at 1280 x 720 pixels, 24fps, rather than Full HD 1920 x 1080 – marking this out as an affordable all-in-one device. '
'Small and light, the Pentax K-x seems like a well-built, no-nonsense digital SLR'
'The new K-x felt sturdy.'
'The camera also features a new 'cross-processing' mode on top of an already impressive range of filters and processing options. '
'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. '
'The ZR1 is shockingly small considering its lens specifications.'
'A few subtle features help the ZR1 rise above ho-hum status: an ultraquiet zoom lens that reaches to 25mm on the wide-angle end, lightning-fast autofocus in video mode, great image stabilization at high ISO levels and fast shutter speeds, and a few unique scene modes. '
'The build quality too is exceptional, with a very solid feel that's not permeated with flimsy plastic or cheap components â?? it's all metal here. '
