REVIEW

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III

The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III is an overall great camera that delivers significant improvements over the RX100 II, but not everyone will think it's worth the extra cost.

Olympus E-PL2
REVIEW

Olympus E-PL2 ( with 14-42mm lens, White)

A great interchangeable-lens model if you're looking for better photo quality and/or a more advanced feature set than your current point-and-shoot offers, the Olympus PEN E-PL2 still doesn't satisfy for photographing active kids and pets.

REVIEW

Canon PowerShot ELPH SD40 ( Twilight Sepia)

Its small size makes it an attractive pocket camera, but its speed and image quality issues are too great to ignore.

Olympus IR-500
REVIEW

Olympus IR-500

The Olympus IR-500 is a competent 4-megapixel camera with a limited zoom range, but its 2.5-inch high-resolution LCD and playback capabilities will make you want to tote it everywhere as a portable shoot-and-show display.

REVIEW

Kodak EasyShare DX3900

If you don't mind just average photos, the DX7590 will appeal to snapshooters looking for more control.

REVIEW

Canon PowerShot SD110

If you can live with a 2X zoom and 3.2-megapixel resolution, this snapshooter offers decent images and good performance in an ultracompact package.

REVIEW

Pentax Optio 33WR

Though the Optio 33WR is an otherwise average pocket camera, its water resistance and broad snapshot feature set make it stand out from the crowd.
