Leica V-Lux 20
ESTIMATED STREET PRICE: $699
With the Leica V-Lux 20’s built-in GPS tagging, you’ll always know exactly where an image was taken. Besides recording location coordinates into an image’s EXIF data, the camera also displays local sights and places of interest. The 12.1-megapixel shooter has a Leica DC Vario-Elmar 4.1-49.2mm ƒ/3.3-4.9 ASPH zoom lens that’s equivalent to 25-300mm in 35mm format. Rounding out the top features are a three-inch TFT display and HD movie recording.

Share your photos and videos by projecting with the Nikon Coolpix S1100pj. The camera has a built-in projector that’s 40% brighter than the previous model and can project up to 47 inches from more than seven feet away. Additional features include a built-in slideshow function that plays photos with music and one-touch HD 720p movie recording. The 14.1-megapixel camera also has a 5x zoom lens (28-140mm).
ESTIMATED STREET PRICE: $199
Add some flair to your images using the Creative Art Filters that are built right into the Olympus FE-4020. Filter effects such as Pop Art, Pinhole, Fisheye and Drawing can be previewed on the 2.7-inch LCD before you take the shot and then applied in-camera. The camera has a 14-megapixel sensor, AF Tracking that locks in on fast-moving subjects and continuously adjusts focus and brightness, and 21 shooting modes.
