Leica M9

Leica M9

If you've been longing for a digital version of the legendary Leica rangefinder, your wait is over. The Leica M9 (£4,850; roughly $8,075) is the world's first full-frame Leica digital rangefinder, and also the world's smallest full-frame camera, period. It boasts an 18 megapixel, full-frame 24 x 36mm sensor, full compatibility with Leica's M lenses, ISO from 80 to 2500, shutter speeds of up to 1/4000 of a second, a sturdy one-piece, full metal housing, with a magnesium alloy body and solid brass top and bottom plates, a 2.5-inch monitor, and quick access to the features and adjustments serious photographers care about most.

  • Canon PowerShot G11

    Sometimes less really is more. The new Canon PowerShot G11 ($500; October 2009) ditches its predecessor's 14.7 megapixel sensor for a newly-developed 10 megapixel high-sensitivity sensor supporting ISO 3200, giving it the ability to handle low light situations that would make the G10 weep. Other features include a 2.8-inch vari-angle LCD, a 5x optical zoom lens with optical stabilization, RAW + JPG support, a hotshoe for external flashes and other accessories, a DIGIC 4 processor for speedy performance, and more.

  • Sony Party-Shot

    Finally, you can get great pictures of your next gathering and still be in the pictures. The Sony Party-Shot ($150; September 2009) is an automated photographer for your new DSC-WX1 or DSC-TX1 camera. Boasting the ability to pan 360 degrees and tilt 24 degrees, the Party-Shot uses either camera's built-in BIONZ image processor to automatically detect faces and smiles, adjust composition, and take photos for you, so you can relax knowing you're getting great shots without having to do any of the work.
