The Casio EX-FS10 is a new super-slim, super-fast compact digital camera. Measuring just 16.4mm deep and capable of taking 30 six megapixel images in one second, the EXFS10 is much more than just another run-of-the-mill pocket digicam. The 9 megapixel Casio FS10 has a 2.5 inch LCD screen and 3x optical zoom lens and can shoot both 720p HD and 1000fps super-slow-motion movies. Retailing for $349.99 / £299.99 and available in blue, gray, red and white, find out if the Casio EX-FS10 is all speed and no substance by reading our expert review.
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...
The Nikon Coolpix S60 is one of the more distinctive compact digital cameras around, with a "wave-surface" design and large 3.5 inch LCD display. Furthermore, the S60 is almost completely controlled via its touch-screen LCD, even including zooming in and out. Other standout features of the Nikon S60 include a 5x zoom lens with Vibration Reduction, Scene Auto Selector for beginners, Smile Timer with blink detection, and and a HDMi output for viewing photos on a HDTV set. The Nikon Coolpix S60 costs around €349 / £299.99 / $349.95.
World Exclusive! The Ricoh CX1 is a new point-and-shoot digital camera that focuses on one key area - image quality. At its heart is a new 9 megapixel CMOS sensor and image processing engine, the combination of which promises expanded dynamic range, lower noise and faster operation. The CX1's new DR shooting mode combines two images shot with different exposures to create one image with more detail in the shadows and highlights, while a fast continuous burst mode of 4fps should ensure that you don't miss the action. There's also an amazing high-resolution LCD screen, 7x optical zoom lens and a veritable wealth of options to keep even the most ardent photographer happy. The Ricoh CX1 is available now for £299 in the UK - we find out if it's the real deal in our latest in-depth review...
