Ricoh GR-Digital

Ricoh GR-Digital

Sometimes it's good to have limitations. They push you to think more and try new things. The Ricoh GR-Digital ($650) is a perfect example. Its fixed, prime lens means no lazy zooming from across the street. It makes you get up and fill the frame yourself. With classic, no-nonsense styling, the pocketable 8.1-megapixel camera takes excellent, natural-looking shots thanks to the high-performance lens and the legendary GR Engine. Our shots were super sharp and had great contrast. The GR-D sports a 2.5-inch LCD and has a magnesium body underneath the jet black. You also get great single-hand operation thanks to the mode dial, while the twin-dial system lets you quickly control manual exposure, white balance and other functions like a camera four times its size.

  • Sony Net-Sharing Cam

    Looking for an easier way to capture and upload video of your shirtless-dancing skills and beer-drinking parrot? The Sony Net-Sharing Cam ($200; Sept.) has you covered. Designed for social networkers and video bloggers, the pocketable camera can record about five hours of web-ready MPEG-4 video footage, then lets you upload short video clips to the web. It also snaps print-quality, 5-megapixel digital still photos, weights only five ounces, and has a built-in flash, a 2.4-inch SwivelScreen LCD, and rechargeable Lithium Ion battery. [via]

  • Sanyo Xacti E1 Waterproof Camcorder

    While it may not match the Xacti HD1's video prowess, all that extra resolution won't help you if you're five feet underwater. The Sanyo Xacti E1 Waterproof Camcorder ($455) records both H.264 640x480 video at 30fps and six-megapixel digital stills underwater. Features include a 2.5-inch LCD, 5x optical zoom, image stabilization, and SD or SDHC storage. Plus, it comes in white, blue and yellow, depending on what kind of fish you're trying to confuse.
