The 3 inch LCD screen can be used to focus on the main subject, set the camera options and playback your images. In addition to getting all touch-feely, the Canon IXUS 200 also offers a wide-angle 5x zoom lens, 12 megapixels and 720p HD video. Available in a variety of colours for around £329.00 / $329 / €379.00, Gavin Stoker gets to grips with the Canon Digital IXUS 200 IS.

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...

We find out if the mju 9000 has what it takes to beat them...

Available in black, red or silver for £259 / $349.95, Gavin Stoker discovered if the Panasonic FX40 / FX48 is worth considering.
