A new camera from Bellus scans your face in high resolution with crazy detail, making you the next Dolores or Teddy.
Phase One's 50-megapixel IQ250 gives pro photographers a CMOS sensor option
Fujifilm's sleek, 5-megapixel F450 makes a few too many compromises.
Fujifilm's FinePix 2800 Zoom offers point-and-shoot photographers a 6X zoom lens and a compact design.
The Sigma SD9 is a mediocre digital SLR that occasionally displays flashes of greatness.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10 is a great camera, but its new 'intelligent' image processing isn't especially convincing, and the 'intelligent zoom' and 'extra optical zoom' are an insult to the intelligence. The GPS and manual exposure modes are important steps forward, but, while the TZ10 is better than the Lumix DMC-TZ7, it looks like the rate of progress is slowing down
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX9 is a 12.2-megapixel snapshot camera with a slide-and-shoot faceplate. While not the best value, it ticks the boxes for the latest must-have features, including a 3.5-inch touchscreen and 1080i video.
The HX20V comes close to being the perfect traveller's camera, with a high resolution, long zoom and built-in geotagging features that put your pictures on the map. The auto modes are fast and accurate, consistently producing detail-packed, vivid results.
The 1000D feels like what it is: a cheap, basic dSLR. It's perfectly competent, produces good quality pictures and has all the controls that keen photographers will want as they gain experience. But while Canon's used the opportunity to improve on the old EOS 400D in many areas, the new camera does have a cheaper feel
The G3 is a great addition to the already-strong range of Panasonic interchangeable lens cameras, with a few notable omissions holding it back from being top notch.
The Canon IXUS 1000 HS is another competent entry in the long-zooming compact-camera arena. There's little that lifts the 1000 above its ever-swelling pack of rivals, however.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ20 compact superzoom is expensive. But its high-quality images, long zoom range, HD movie features, GPS, and touchscreen mean you certainly get plenty of camera for your money.
Geared towards point-and-shoot upgrade users, the Olympus Pen Mini E-PM1 offers a great introduction to the world of interchangeable lens cameras. There are a few usability issues that we'd like to see resolved for the next version, though.
A great entry-level digital SLR, the A33 offers fast shooting speeds and very good image quality for most intents and purposes.
The Samsung EX2F is a great professional-grade compact camera. Samsung has married a cluster of manual controls to some well-considered menus in a first-class piece of hardware design. Image quality is hard to fault, with plenty of detail, accurate colours and good low-light performance, all at a very tempting price.
At just £80, the VG-170 is a very inexpensive camera, particularly when you consider its resolution, size and smart features. Unfortunately, its performance is a let-down, with noise appearing in too many of our test shots.
With a lens of which most dSLR users could only dream, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ48 is one of the most versatile and powerful cameras you could hope to pick up for less than £300. A sterling performer throughout our tests, its output more than lives up to the promise of its specs.
A slow burner of a camera, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5's wide-angle lens caught our eye, despite some pedestrian styling. The more we used it, the more we fell in love with it as we uncovered yet more flexible options, making this accessible point-and-shoot another quiet triumph for Panasonic
