Targus Total Recall Digital Voice Recorder

The Good Compact; fast; easy image playback and download; excellent feature set for novices who want to learn more; long-lasting lithium batteries; helpful Best Shot Selection mode.

The Bad Long shot-to-shot lags and slow start-up time; can't use standard AA batteries in a pinch; a mere 8MB CompactFlash card included.

The Bottom Line It could stand to pick up a little speed, but the Coolpix 775 is otherwise very appealing, with smooth ergonomics, well-implemented features, and very good image quality.

A comfortable Coolpix
An ergonomically sound camera that weighs only 6.6 ounces with batteries and media installed, the 775 is made for one-handed shooting. Fitting comfortably in the palm, the camera lets your index finger rest above the shutter button and leaves your thumb free to operate the zoom and menu scroll buttons.

However, the compact design isn't without its flaws. For one thing, the proximity of the battery hatch to the tripod mount prevents you from replacing the batteries without first taking the camera off the tripod. More problematically, the optical viewfinder is ill situated just above the LCD--the screen's glow can be a major visual distraction when you're trying to peer through the little eyepiece. And if you turn off the LCD, you'll have to wait several seconds for it to start up again, which makes switching back and forth between the LCD view or menu and the optical viewfinder a chore.
