The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS camera is the latest travel-zoom model to hit the market, sporting a 14x lens and a 14 megapixel image sensor. Other key features of the Canon SX210 include a 3 inch LCD screen, 720p HD movies with stereo sound, a range of hand-holding modes for beginners, and full manual controls for experienced snappers.

The Fujifilm FinePix F300EXR is the latest travel-zoom camera, sporting a 15x lens with a versatile focal range of 24-360mm.

But can it keep up with its main rivals too? Read our in-depth Fujifilm FinePix F300EXR review to find out...

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...
Cheap doesn't necessarily mean nasty, and that's certainly the case with the Pentax Optio H90 camera. Simplistically yet stylishly designed, with a 12 megapixel sensor, 2.7 inch LCD, 5x zoom lens and 720p HD movies, the Pentax H90 certainly won't break the bank at just £129.99 / $179.95.

Another busy 6 months has passed in the digital photography world, and right on cue, the Ricoh CX4 appears as the replacement for the already out-of-date CX3 compact camera. New features include a reworked body, improved image stabilisation system, subject-tracking auto-focus mode, and some creative filters. The CX4 retains the 10.7x lens, 720p HD movies, 3 inch screen, and 10 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor of its predecessor.
