Say what you will about the pros and cons of social networking, but one thing's for sure — it has spawned an entire generation for whom the self portrait is essential. For this new band of self shooters, we present the Samsung MV800 Camera ($280). It packs plenty of the tech you'd expect — like a 16.1 megapixel CCD sensor, 720p movie recording, a Schneider 5x optical zoom lens, dual-mode image stabilization, standard and live panorama 3D shooting modes, HDMI output, and microSD/SDHC storage, but also boasts a three-inch, flip-out touchscreen display, and, for those self portraits, a second shutter button on the rear. You've never made yourself look so good.
Like its big brother the X100, the Fujifilm FinePix X10 Camera ($TBA) looks more than a little retro — and that's a good thing. Powered by a large 12-megapixel, 2/3-inch EXR CMOS sensor paired to a f2.0, 4x manual optical zoom lens, the X10 takes serious photographs and 1080p video that you can view on the 2.8-inch monitor — and thanks to the optical viewfinder and physical controls for shooting mode, autofocus mode, and exposure compensation, it handles like a camera made for taking serious photographs as well.
