The EX-H15 is Casio 's second travel-zoom camera, following on from last year's EX-H10 model. Still offering a 10x, 24-240mm zoom lens, large 3 inch LCD, and 720p HD movies in a pocketable body, the new EX-H15 also has a faster processor, improved Premium Auto mode, plus creative Dynamic Photo and Art Photo functions.

The Fujifilm FinePix F300EXR is the latest travel-zoom camera, sporting a 15x lens with a versatile focal range of 24-360mm. Taking on the likes of the Panasonic TZ10 and Samsung WB650, the new 12 megapixel F300EXR features a hybrid auto-focus system that switches between traditional contrast AF and a quicker phase detection AF system, as used in DSLR cameras. But can it keep up with its main rivals too? Read our in-depth Fujifilm FinePix F300EXR review to find out...
The second travel-zoom camera that we're looking at this week is the Nikon Coolpix S8000.

Zoltan Arva-Toth takes a look at the range-topping Olympus mju 9010 in the World's first online review.
Travel-zoom cameras have quickly become a popular sector of the compact market, offering a compelling combination of small size and big zoom. Panasonic's new budget travel-zoom camera for 2010, the DMC-TZ8 (also known as the DMC-ZS5) is no different, offering a 25-300mm focal range in a camera that can easily fit inside a jacket pocket. Mark Goldstein puts the TZ8 / ZS5 through its paces in the World's first on-line review...
The Samsung WB650 (also known as the Samsung HZ35W) is Samsung's flagship travel-zoom camera for 2010, offering a better feature-set than the market-leader, the Panasonic DMC-TZ10, at a lower price. Built-in GPS, a 3 inch AMOLED screen, 15x zoom, 12 megapixels and full manual control are just some of the highlights of the WB650, which is available in grey for £299 / $349.
