Sony Cyber-shot TX5

Sleek, stylish, and tough aren't words that normally describe the same product, but they're certainly applicable to the Sony Cyber-shot TX5 ($350). The TX5 offers many of the same features found in the company's flagship TX7 compact — including an Exmor R CMOS sensor, Sweep Panorama mode, HD video recording (720p, instead of the TX7's 1080i), a touchscreen LCD, 10fps shooting, and Optical SteadyShot image stabilization — but packs them into a rugged body that's dust proof, waterproof to 10 feet, and shockproof to 5 feet.

  • Olympus SP-800UZ

    While we're not sure about its "background defocusing" feature — seems like opening up the aperture would do the same thing — the new Olympus SP-800UZ ($350) is a strong contender otherwise. It sports a 30x optical zoom, a 14 megapixel CCD sensor, a 3-inch wide-screen LCD, 720p HD video recording, CCD-shift image stabilization, SD/SDHC compatibility, Face Detection AF, and HDMI output, all crammed in a compact, stylish body.

  • Nikon Coolpix P100

    We don't know why it's taken them so long, but Nikon has finally outed a camera capable of Full 1080p HD video recording. The Nikon Coolpix P100 ($400) packs HD video in a semi-compact body, as well as a 10.3 megapixel backside illumination CMOS sensor, a 26x Optical Wide Angle Zoom-NIKKOR lens, a 3-inch variable-angle LCD, program, shutter priority, aperture priority, and manual modes for complete photographic control, five-way vibration reduction, ISO up to 3200, built-in HDR, 10fps shooting at full resolution or 120fps at 1.1 megapixels, Active D-Lighting — one of our favorite features on the company's DSLRs — and HDMI out, all adding up to a do-it-all camera that can easily fit in a man bag or cargo pocket.
