Take a look with us at the Canon Powershot DSC-SX230 HS, a travel zoom point-and-shoot camera with Canon Movie Digest mode and a 14x lens that zooms from a wide 28 to 392mm (equivalent). The SX230 has a 12MP backlit CMOS sensor, sensitive to ISO 3200. It can capture good low-light pictures and has full 1080 HD video at 30 fps for detailed motion pictures with stereo sound, slow motion up to 240 fps and a GPS function to geo-tag your photos.
The P7000 is truly an advanced compact digital camera, offering one of the biggest 10MP sensors in its class, almost all the manual controls a DSLR would have and with some important options about which very few compact digital cameras can boast.
At B&H, we currently stock about 100 point-and-shoot cameras; all of them are capable of shooting terrific photographs, and in most cases, video. The choices are far narrower, however, for those seeking digicams that can take an occasional dunk in the drink, an accidental fall, a tropical schvitz, or a high-altitude freeze. If this describes your lifestyle, the following 10 digicams are specifically designed to take a rougher ride than most of the larger, pricier cameras we sell at B&H (and at a fraction of the price!).
Daytrippers looking for an able bodied, pocket-sized digicam that packs a combination of high levels of resolving power, a broad focal range, HD video capability and impressively fast burst rates in a stylish, yet serious-looking package should take a close look at the Nikon CoolPix S8100.
Shooters looking for a thin-profile digicam that features high resolution, the option of shooting stills or HD video and a large, easy-to-use touch-screen display should take a gander at one of Nikon's newest CoolPix offerings, the Nikon CoolPix S80.
The new Nikon CoolPix P7000 fills a slot that's been glaringly open for quite some time—namely, a high performance, point-and-shoot camera designed with the sort of features advanced amateurs and pros seek in a compact camera.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 is the latest addition to the Micro Four Thirds line. The camera employs a unique touch display that makes shooting high-quality photos and video fun and easy. Intelligent Auto Mode simplifies the shooting experience while a set of well-considered manual controls allows users to explore their creativity.
