Fujifilm rolls out four tiny cameras with tiny prices
While a lot of the exciting new features and designs come to point-and-shoots above $200, most of the buying happens at and below that price points. So while these four new models from Fujifilm aren't exciting, they are inexpensive, look decent, and have the requisite specs and features for their class.

Latest Olympus FE cameras use microSD
Olympus' trio of Fall FE cameras, the company's budget snapshooters, don't break any new ground but they're shiny and come in bright colors. Most notably, they all offer dual card slots so you're not forced to use Olympus'/Fujifilm's xD-Picture cards.

What's long, wide, and thin and takes xD cards? (Answer: The Olympus Stylus-7010)
In case you haven't been paying attention, the gotta-have-it trend in compact cameras is a wide-angle, long-zoom lens, such as the one in the 1-inch-thick Olympus Stylus-7010. Available in August in a choice of dark gray, silver, or pink, the 7010 has just about every feature we look for in a pocket camera in its class.
