The Canon Digital IXUS 210 (also called the Canon Powershot SD3500 IS) joins the small but growing band of cameras that offer a graceful touch-screen interface rather than a cluttered collection of external controls. Almost every aspect of the IXUS 210's operation can be controlled by interacting with the massive and high-res 3.5 inch LCD screen that dominates the rear of the camera. Other standout features include 14 megapixels, a 5x zoom with 24mm wide-angle setting, and 720p HD movie recording. Mark Goldstein gets all touchy-feely with Canon's second touch screen camera in our Canon Digital IXUS 210 review.
The Fujifilm FinePix F80EXR is an attractively designed compact camera with a 10x zoom lens, 12 megapixel sensor, 3 inch LCD screen, HD movie recording and manual controls, all for a street price of less than £200 / $250. Read our Fujifilm FinePix F80EXR Review to find out if it's a worthy successor to last year's F70EXR model.
The Nikon Coolpix S5100 is a stylish new budget point-and-shoot camera. The S5100 offers a compact body, 12 megapixels, a 5x zoom with 28mm wide-angle setting, 720p HD movies and a 2.7 inch LCD screen. Read our expert review of the Nikon Coolpix S5100.
Looking for a stylish point and shoot compact that won't break the bank? The new Olympus mju 7040 (also called the Stylus 7040) could be the answer, with 14 megapixels, a 7x wide-angle zoom lens, 3 inch LCD screen and 720p video all on offer. Zoltan Arva-Toth finds out if the Olympus mju / Stylus 7040 can live up to its promise.
The Lumix DMC-FX70 is Panasonic's first compact camera that almost exclusively relies on its clever touchscreen technologies for operation, with just a few external controls to supplement the 3 inch LCD. Also on offer are a bright f/2.2, 5x zoom lens, 14 megapixel CCD sensor, and 720p HD video. Read our in-depth Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX70 review complete with sample images and video.
Not everyone needs a digital camera with all the latest bells and whistles.

Another busy 6 months has passed in the digital photography world, and right on cue, the Ricoh CX5 appears as the replacement for the already out-of-date CX4 compact camera. New features include a faster hybrid auto-focus system Super Resolution technology, three scene modes, and Eye-Fi card support. The CX5 retains the 10.7x lens, 720p HD movies, 3 inch screen, and 10 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor of its predecessor.

Boldly promoted as an alternative to a DSLR, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 is a new mid-range compact camera with a wealth of advanced features. A fast f/2.4 lens, sensible 12 megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, and Superior Auto and Background Defocus modes supposedly produce DSLR picture quality, while Sony have also included Full HD movie recording and even 3D via the Sweep Panorama mode. Priced at around £225 / $300, read our in-depth Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 review to find out if it lives up to its full promise.
