Nikon Coolpix S4

Nikon Coolpix S4

Yeah, we know we just wrote about a new Nikon camera yesterday, but they came out with way too many new models this week for us to get by with just lusting after one. The Coolpix S4 ($400; available in October) packs a 10x optical zoom into a pocket-size camera thanks to an innovative swivel body design. The digital camera has 6 megapixels of resolution, a 2.5-inch LCD, a host of automatic settings (face priority autofocus, red-eye fix, etc.), 16 scene modes, and a nice macro setting.

  • Canon Powershot S80

    When stuck in the eternal battle between wanting the features of a dSLR and the portability of a point-and-shoot, keep this in mind: no one ever gets photos from places they don’t take their cameras, and most people aren’t going to take a dSLR to a party. For this reason, we like the new Powershot S80 from Canon ($550). It’s got a massive eight-megapixel sensor, an XGA movie mode, a 2.5” LCD, and a 3.6X optical zoom wide angle lens.

  • Sony DSC-H1 Digital Camera

    If you're looking for a camera that's better than a tiny pocket-style one, but don't want a huge digital SLR (or pay a grand or more), you should look strongly at the DSC-H1 from Sony ($500). The 5-megapixel camera has a spectacular 12x optical zoom, advanced image stabilization technology, and a massive 2.5-inch color LCD screen. It also captures VGA (640 x 480) video clips with audio at up to 30 frames per second.
