Olympus Stylus 1050 SW

Olympus Stylus 1050 SW

Like its predecessor, the Olympus Stylus 1050 SW ($300; Oct.) is one of the toughest compact digital cameras you can buy. But there's more brains to go with the ruggedness this time around. This shockproof (5ft.), waterproof (10ft.) and freezeproof (14°F) camera has new Tap Control functionality that lets you activate settings just by tapping the top, back or sides of the motion-sensitive camera body. Buttons? We don't need no stinking buttons. The 10.1-megapixel shooter — available in blue, champagne, silver and black — also features Face Detection, Smile Shot, and an in-camera panorama mode.

  • Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

    The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 ($500) is a pro-worthy point-and-shoot that features a F2.0 24mm Leica DC Vario-Summicron lens, 10.1 megapixels and an ultra-sensitive 1/1.63-inch CCD. The compact cam captures photos up to ISO 3200 at full resolution, offers full manual control for more advanced photography, and has the ability to record HD video in 1280 x 720p at 24fps. It'll be available in silver and black next month.

  • Samsung TL9

    This ultra-compact shooter has the usual set of features — 10-megapixel resolution, a 2.7 inch LCD, 5x optical zoom, maximum ISO of 1600, and Dual Image Stabilization. But what sets The Samsung TL9 ($280) apart from other cameras is MP3/PMP capability and two awesome empty/full analog gauges that track remaining battery life and memory capacity. [via]
