Canon Powershot S95
ESTIMATED STREET PRICE: $399
With Hybrid IS technology, the Canon PowerShot S95 is especially well suited for macro photography. The image-stabilization system compensates for camera shake in multiple directions, not just vertical or horizontal, allowing you to take sharp-looking close-ups. The 10-megapixel camera shoots 720p high-definition video at 30 fps and has in-camera HDR processing that automatically combines exposure-bracketed shots. The camera also has a 28-105mm (35mm equivalent) ƒ/2.0 lens, 3.8x optical zoom, manual exposure controls and RAW shooting capabilities.
Casio EXILIM Card EX-S200
ESTIMATED STREET PRICE: $179
The 14.1-megapixel Casio EXILIM Card EX-S200 uses a flat lens barrel and lens ring to maintain a body that’s just 0.5 inches at its thinnest point. In addition to recording 1280x720 high-def video at 20 fps, the camera can shoot 1280x960-pixel images at 10 fps for up to 20 shots. A unique Landscape Enhancement Mode includes a Mist Removal feature for clearing up hazy outdoor scenes.
Fujifilm FinePix REAL 3D W3
ESTIMATED STREET PRICE: $499
Capture high-resolution 3D stills and movies in 3D HD at 720p using the 10-megapixel Fujifilm FinePix REAL 3D W3. Images are processed by the newly developed RP (Real Photo) Processor 3D HD, which merges the left and right images into a single image. A mini-HDMI port allows for easy playback on most 3D television systems. The W3 includes a 3.5-inch, 16:9 LCD and HDMI 1.4 for dropping images and videos directly into a 3D-ready TV.
