Nikon Coolpix P5000

We're not always excited about pocket-sized cams, but when they come with Nikon's optical VR image stabilization, you'd best believe we'll take notice. The Nikon Coolpix P5000 ($400; March 2007) boasts features such as a 10 megapixel resolution, a 2.5 LCD monitor, and a new image processing engine that optimizes for both low light and color reproduction. A built-in hot shoe, SDHC compatibility, and a new Face-priority AF mode round out the offering, but for those with shaky hands, the VR stabilization alone is worth the price.
