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 Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP3 is a new ultra-slim camera with touch-screen technology that won't break the bank. Featuring a clever 4x folded-optics zoom lens and large 3 inch touch screen LCD, the 14 megapixel Panasonic FP3 could be your for just £179 / $230. Gavin Stoker discovers if Panasonic have delivered a winning combination of features and value for money in our Lumix DMC-FP3 review.
The Samsung ST1000 (also known as the CL65) is one of the most cutting-edge compact cameras on the market, offering built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, GPS tracking and a fantastic 3.5 inch, 1,152k dot touch-screen LCD. As if that wasn't enough, there's also a 12 megapixel sensor, 5x zoom lens, 720p video recording at 30fps, and a range of auto modes for beginners. Officially retailing at £349.99 / $399.99, we find out if the Samsung ST1000 / CL65 is worth the price premium.
The new Samsung ST550 camera pushes the envelope of user interface design, with a incredibly clever touch-screen interface that is finally worth using. Widely promoted in an expensive TV ad campaign, the ST550 (also known as the TL225) has an LCD screen on the front as well as the back, which is used for self-portraits. A 12 megapixel sensor and 4.6x wide-angle zoom complete the key specifications of the ST-550. Mark Goldstein finds out if the Samsung ST550 / TL225 is the ultimate Christmas gift in our in-depth expert review...
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX1 is a small, stylish and svelte pocket camera with a twist - it delivers excellent image quality in almost any situation. With Sony's new Exmor-R sensor at its heart, the TX1 takes great pictures in all lighting conditions, and thanks to its amazing 10fps burst mode, it can keep up with the action too. Other key features include touch-sensitive operation via the 3 inch LCD screen, innovative Sweep Panorama mode, a 4x zoom lens and ISO range of 100-3200. We find out if the Sony TX1 strikes the right balance between form and function in our latest expert review.
