Canon PowerShot G11

Canon PowerShot G11 Review thumbnail

The PowerShot G11 is the latest version of Canon's compact camera range for prosumers and professionals, offering a DSLR experience in a pocketable body. Interestingly Canon have reduced the number of megapixels on the G11 in a bid to improve image quality at higher ISO speeds, and they've responded to customer feedback by re-introducing the vari-angle LCD that was missing on the previous G10 model. With a price-tag of £569.00 / €659.00 / $499.99, the Canon PowerShot G11 is one of the most expensive digital compact cameras that money can buy - Gavin Stoker finds out if it's also one of the best...

The 9 megapixel Casio FS10 has a 2.5 inch LCD screen and 3x optical zoom lens and can shoot both 720p HD and 1000fps super-slow-motion movies.

Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR

Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR Review thumbnail

The Fujifilm Finepix F200EXR is potentially one of the most revolutionary cameras of 2009. It features Fujifilm's innocuous sounding EXR technology, which rather cleverly turns the Fuji F200 into three cameras in one. The first EXR mode shoots a high-res 12 megapixel picture, the second takes a 6 megapixel photo with less noise, and the third combines two 6 megapixel images taken at different exposures to capture more dynamic range. Does Fujifilm's brave attempt to concentrate on image quality rather than more megapixels pay off? Carry on reading our detailed review to find out...

Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR

The FinePix F70 is the latest camera to feature Fujifilm's revolutionary EXR technology, which offers you the choice of images with high resolution, expanded dynamic range or less noise at high ISO speeds. The Fujifilm F70EXR also offers two new shooting modes, Pro Focus Mode and Pro Low-light, which use multi-frame technology to create photos with greater depth-of-field and reduced noise, plus a versatile 10x zoom lens in a small and stylish body. Priced at just $279.95 / £229.99, is this the perfect compact camera for beginners and more experienced photographers alike? Read our expert review of the Fujifilm FinePix F70EXR to find out...

The aperture and shutter speed can be adjusted to the desired value simply by moving the slider, and AF/AE can be set by touching the subject with the FX550 automatically tracking the subject as it moves. The 12 megapixel Panasonic FX550 costs £299 in the UK and $399.95 in the US - Gavin Stoker got all touchy-feely with Panasonic's latest compact...
