Kodak EasyShare P712

Kodak EasyShare P712

Kodak's new EasyShare P712 digital camera ($500; July) is a nice step up from the pocket point-and-shoots, offering more control and performance, but the same ease of use. The 7.1 megapixel camera features an image-stabilized 12x zoom, Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon lens, and a super fast auto-focus system with a click-to-capture rate that's literally faster than the blink of an eye (less than 1/10th of a second). The P712 also features a 2.5-inch LCD and electronic viewfinder, 30 frames-per-second VGA video with sound, and basic on-camera video editing. [via]

  • Nikon SB-800 Speedlight Flash

    Taking kick-ass pictures isn't just about having the most mega-pixels — there is a oft-forgotten component that can really make a difference in your nighttime pics: the flash. We've been using the Nikon SB-800 Speedlight Flash ($330) for a few weeks now and it really makes a difference. Not only does its range whomp on most anemic built-in flashes, but the ability to bounce the flash, use color filters, and wirelessly trigger the unit for fill flash has opened up a whole new realm of photography for us. Try out the repeated flash (in one exposure) feature — the strobe-like effects are really amazing.

  • Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T30

    Pocket cameras are great on portability, but lots of times lack when it comes to important photography features. Not so with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T30 ($500, pre-order). It features Super Steady Shot optical image stabilization for easier, more consistent snapshot-taking when out and about and in low lighting, as well as a Carl Zeiss 3x optical zoom lens. Oh, and you can review your shots on the camera's semi-ginormous three-inch LCD.
