If you don't have a problem walking around with a camera sticking out of the side of your head, then you won't have a problem with the Looxcie ($200). This tiny cam shoots HVGA footage any time it's on, letting you record those memories you wish you would have been filming without even needing to think about it. Plus, it doubles as a Bluetooth headset, and lets you use most well-known Android handsets as a viewfinder and editor — as if wearing a camera on your ear wasn't dorky enough.
Wondering why your D90 has been in a drunken stupor for the last day or so? Blame the Nikon D7000 ($1,200). Though it's not technically a replacement, the D7000's impressive feature list — including a 16.2 megapixel DX sensor, 39-point AF system, Expeed 2 image processor, ISO up to 25,600, magnesium alloy body, 2,016-pixel RGB metering sensor, 1080/24p video recording, 6 fps burst shooting, dual SD slots, and 100%, glass pentaprism viewfinder — is enough to make any lesser camera hit the sauce.
Looking for a near-DSLR experience from a pocket cam but not ready to abandon your beloved Canon for that hot new Nikon Coolpix P7000? Lucky for you, there's the Canon Powershot G12 ($500). This 10-megapixel shooter features the DIGIC 4 image processor for improved low light performance, 720p HD video recording, a 2.8-inch adjustable LCD, a 5x optical zoom lens with optical image stabilization, a hotshoe, an HDR mode, RAW + JPEG capability, and full manual options to put the control back in your hands.
