Canon EOS Rebel T1i

Canon EOS Rebel T1i

If you're ready to move beyond the deer-in-the-headlight shots you've been taking with your puny point-and-shoot, the brand new Canon EOS Rebel T1i ($800) is the perfect place to start. The T1i represents a solid update to Canon's ever-popular EOS line of entry level digital SLR cameras. This camera has all the updates we've been looking forward to, like a 15.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, DIGIC 4 Imaging Processor, 9-point Auto Focus, ISO settings up to 6400, and compatibility with Canon's complete line of EF and EF-S lenses. But the big surprise here is the addition of HD video capture and a 3-inch Clear View LCD monitor, a feature previously reserved for the 5D Mark II, the T1i's bigger and costlier brother. This is a serious SLR in a compact, affordable package.

  • JVC Everio X

    While it might not be fair to call the new JVC Everio X ($1,000; June 2009) just another camera, it's probably not fair to call it a camcorder, either. Yet another example of a device that mixes impressive still video capabilities with equally impressive video, the X features a 10.3 megapixel sensor that lets you shoot 9 megapixel stills, 1080p video, simultaneous five-megapixel digital stills while recording Full HD video, 600fps slow-motion videos, and more. It's versatility that fits in your pocket.

  • Sony HX1 Cyber-Shot

    The new Sony HX1 Cyber-Shot ($500) looks like it has it all. It's basically our digital camera wish list wrapped up in one device. With a 9.1 megapixel Exmor CMOS image sensor at its heart, the HX1 features a pro-quality 28mm wide-angle lens with 20x optical zoom. In addition to being able to achieve burst speeds of 10 frames per second (read: 10 action photos in one second), the camera has new sweep panorama technology, which can help you take 224-degree panorama shots in one simple press-and-sweep motion. The HX1 also has 1080p HD video recording capabilities, recording at 30 frames per second using the MPEG4 AVC/H.264 format.
