Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9K

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9K

Whether it be caffeine, sugar, or simply bad nerves, anyone who has the "shakes" every once in a while knows that using a compact camera at full zoom can spell disaster. Panasonic recognized this, and built serious Optical Image Stabilization into the Lumix DMC-FX9K ($350) to counteract the problem. Add to this 6 Megapixels, a 2.5" LCD, and Leica optics, and you have a pocket-sized winner.

  • Nikon D200

    A lot of people have been waiting a long time for this one. The Nikon D200 ($1700; available in Dec.) is more than just a replacement for 2002’s D100 — it is a real step forward in affordable dSLRs with professional stats. I features a 10.2 megapixel CCD, a 2.5” LCD, can shoot at a sustained 5 frames per second for up to 37 frames, and can take up to 1800 shots per charge. Now comes the hard part — trying to find somewhere to dump off your D100 from yesteryear.

  • Samsung SC-X105L MPEG4 Sports Camcorder

    After suggesting the waterproof Pentax Optio WP for those of you who do the whole outdoor living thing, we received a request from an extreme sporting type for a digital camcorder that he could use without being afraid of breaking it. Meet the Samsung SC-X105L ($600). The MPEG4 sports camcorder has a durable, water-resistant body and comes with an extra camera module that can be mounted to a helmet or your arm for hands-free recording. It's got a 10x optical zoom with a 680K movie-optimized CCD lens, the ability to capture digital stills
    up to 1280 x 960, and even boasts a
    built-in an MP3 player.
