  • Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W300

    If you can get past the "more pixels, the worse the images" theory, the new Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W300 ($350; May 2008) looks to be an excellent compact shooter. The camera features a 13.6-megapixel CCD imager, Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 3x optical zoom lens, a 2.7- inch LCD screen, an eye-level viewfinder, HD output, and a scratch-resistant ultra-hard titanium coating. Shooting options include an "extra high-speed" burst mode that can shoot 3-megapixel photos at five frames per second, and "extra high sensitivity" mode (up to ISO 6400 in this mode only) to help with dimly lit photos.

  • Olympus Stylus 1030 SW

    If your vacations are a little on the wild side, you need a camera that won't die after the first splash of water or the first drop to the ground. Called "the toughest point-and-shoot camera in the world," the 10.1-megapixel Olympus Stylus 1030 SW ($400) is shockproof (can withstand a 6.6 ft. drop), waterproof (up to 33 ft.), freezeproof (down to 14°F), crushproof (up to 220 lbs. of pressure) and dustproof (air-tight seal impervious to dust). Niceties include a 3.6x wide-angle optical zoom, 2.7-inch LCD, and Face Detection.
