Casio Exilim EX-G1

Casio Exilim EX-G1

Tough, but not bulky. That might be a good way to describe the Casio Exilim EX-G1 ($300; December 2009). The first camera of Casio's new G line, the EX-G1 is a 12.1-megapixel, .78-inch pocket cam with unusual resilience: it's waterproof down to 10 feet for up to 60 minutes straight, resists water penetration even when being directly sprayed, can handle temperatures down to 14 degrees, and can withstand multiple falls from seven feet. Other features include a 848 x 480 16:9 movie mode, microSD storage, intelligent autofocus, and a 3x zoom lens.

  • Nikon D3s

    Whether you're a photo journalist or a hobbyist with a passion — and budget — for the latest and greatest, the new Nikon D3s ($5,200) should be on your list. With an eye-popping maximum ISO of 102,400, this new 12.1 megapixel beast can shoot photos or 720p video in near-darkness, and also offers 9 fps full-frame shooting in bursts up to 36 RAW or 82 JPEG files, Nikon's world-class 51-point AF system, 3D Color Matrix Metering II, one-button Live View, dual CF card slots, and more.

  • Samsung DualView Camera

    With one of the more novel camera designs we've seen in a while, the Samsung DualView Camera ($265) solves that age-old question of how to take a good self portrait. The solution? A 1.5-inch front-mounted LCD screen, which can also display silly animations to amuse a child subject, or a countdown for the self timer. Also in front is a 27mm wide angle, 4.6x optical zoom Schneider lens, while the back is dedicated to the haptic feedback-enhanced 3-inch touchscreen, which is great for replaying those 720p movies you recorded. It's not going to win any professional photography awards, but its blend of smart features and pocketable size makes it a fine point-and-shoot.
