With a special olive green paint job, the Leica M8.2 Safari Edition ($10,000) is limited to only 500 units. The 10.3-megapixel german comes with a Leica Elmarit-M 28 mm f/2.8 ASPH. lens, exclusive Billingham camera case, a matching leather carrying strap, and lots of guilt for spending junior's college fund on a camera.

Small enough to fit in your pocket, the Polaroid PoGo ($200; March 2009) is the first U.S.-bound combination digital camera and printer portable enough to take anywhere. Using ZINK Imaging's Zero Ink printing technology and paper, the PoGo can crank out 2x3-inch sticky-backed photos with or without fun borders in less than 60 seconds, and saving a copy to an SD card. It's truly a modern-day Polaroid.
Three things can stop you from getting the shot. 1) Not having your camera with you because it's too bulky. 2) Having a camera that's super slow to start up. 3) Having sausage fingers and/or bad picture taking skills. The Casio EXILIM EX-FC100 ($400) will fix all of those. The compact 9.1-megapixel shooter features a high-speed 30 shot-per-second burst rate (faster than an SLR camera) and takes high-speed movies at a maximum of 1000 fps. That means it's taking pictures before you hit the shutter button, and that you're going to have some crazy slow-mo videos to show off.
