Like many of you, I don't always like to shoot with my DSLR, because of how bulky and heavy it can be. Sometimes, I just want a good point-and-shoot. But to get a really good photo, lighting is so important. I'm a big lover of strobist techniques, so using them with a point-and-shoot was always something that I wanted to test out a bit.
If you're looking for a digicam that can satisfy your advanced, creative needs and still fit in your pocket, you might want to take a closer look at Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V. Available in black only ,the Sony DSC-HX5V features a 10.2Mp Exmor R CMOS sensor, which allows for twice the light sensitivety as comparable point-and-shoot sensors, a 3" LCD, and a 10x, 25-250mm equivalent Sony G-series lens for capturing wide landscapes as well as distant subjects.
Sometimes great ideas don't always pan out. This post is one of them. What I proposed to management was testing Sony's new waterproof and shockproof digicam- the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX5 - while shooting the rapids of the Colorado River. And would you believe it... they shot me down. Trooper that I am, I dusted off my pride and set out for the alternative wilds of Hackelbarny State Park, where I proceeded to put Sony's latest honey through its paces.
The Fujifilm S2550HD is a 12MP camera with an 18x zoom from 28-504mm this camera is what I call a compact super zoomer. In Panorama mode you can produce a full 6MP image that is virtually undistorted .
The Nikon Coolpix L110, available in black or red finish, is a super zoom camera with a f3.5 Nikkor 15x lens with a focal length of 28–420mm. This Nikon also boasts 16 shooting modes plus an Easy Auto mode.
This is the Sony Cybershot W350. It features an extremely sensitive 14MP CCD sensor, an Optical Steady Shot stabilizer, immediate shutter response and a 4x Carl Zeiss zoom lens, which has a focal length of 26 to 105mm. This tiny camera also features 720 HD video.
As popular as social networking sites such as Facebook, Flickr, Youtube, Kodak Gallery and Orkut are, there are probably many people who would love to share their photos and videos on these sites but are intimidated by the apparent complexity of uploading to them. Now, the Kodak Easy Share M590 makes uploading easy.
Panasonic's Lumix-series digicams have evolved over the years into one of the more popular choices among shoppers seeking well-designed point-and-shoot cameras that deliver robust image files. One of the newest models to join Panasonic's digicam line-up is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP3.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC FX-75 has a 14MP CCD sensor and an F/2.2 Leica Summicron lens with a 5x Zoom, for an equivalent 24-120mm lens. Because the FX-75 features such a bright and fast Leica lens, F/2.2 is almost two stops faster than most of the point and shoots—so you know this camera was designed to shoot with available light.
Perhaps the most popular areas of the store are the camera islands. Located on the second floor of the store, they are where almost any digital camera that you can think of is on display for you to test. Behind the counters are the B&H expert staff that can help you with almost any question you may have about the cameras.
One of the reasons people get blurry images with their point-and-shoot camera is because of camera shake. This happens when the camera isn't held very steady, causing trailing in the image. Granted, there are other reasons—such as misfocusing—but browse through the images of many of your friends on Facebook and you'll see that lots of them are blurry due to camera shake. Here are a few pointers that we would like to share with you.
The Nikon CoolPix S9100 is a compact camera with an 18x zoom, VR stabilized Nikkor lens—giving you a 25–450mm equivalent angle of view. To date, it is one of the longest optical zooms in a compact lightweight camera. Nikon has a solid reputation of producing some of the sharpest lenses available, and—coupled with the Nikon vibration reduction stabilizer—will help you achieve outstanding results, even at full zoom.

The movement from 35mm to digital sensors in compact cameras has done more than simply make it possible to instantly review and share your photos. It’s also changed the way cameras are designed. Because the sensors used in today’s compact cameras are much smaller than a frame of film, lenses can also be much smaller and cover longer zoom ranges than ever were possible with film.
