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 new Casio EX-FC100 is the fastest digital camera in town, capable of taking 30 six megapixel images in just a single second. The diminutive, well-built EXFC100 has a wealth of high-speed modes, including pre-recording images before you've even pressed the shutter button, and combining images to help eliminate camera shake in low light conditions. Video is also one of the Casio EX FC100's strong points, with 720p HD footage and 1000fps, super-slow-motion movies on offer. This 9 megapixel model is also a very capable still camera, with a 2.7 inch LCD screen and 5x optical zoom lens. With an official list price of $399.99 / £349.99, the Casio EX-FC100 is an expensive point and shoot - read our in-depth review with sample images, videos and more to find out if it makes the grade.

Other key features of the Nikon S80 include 720p movies with stereo sound, a 5x zoom lens, slim and stylish design and a range of creative filters.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX77 camera relies almost exclusively on its clever touchscreen technologies for operation, sporting a massive 3.5 inch LCD screen.

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.
