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.

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.
The Nikon Coolpix S80 is a point-and-shoot camera with a 14MP CCD sensor, ISO up to 6400 and a 5x Zoom Nikkor lens. It features a 3.5-inch OLED touch screen with more than 800,000 dots that gives you a bright, high-resolution display.
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.
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.
