Toolbox: Top Compact Cameras
For candid and casual photography, today’s fixed-lens cameras offer near-SLR performance and some unique tricks all their own
Looking more like a petite SLR than a compact, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50 offers a 15x Carl Zeiss zoom lens (31-465mm equivalent) that incorporates ED (super low-dispersion) glass for improved performance and Super SteadyShot optical image stabilization to minimize the effect of camera shake. It features 9.1-megapixel resolution and a versatile three-inch, tilt-up LCD display. Other features include manual exposure controls, Face Detection with Smile Shutter release and Sony’s unique NightShot infrared system. NightShot lets you shoot photos in total darkness without using a flash—enabling you to get near-dark and in-the-dark night scenes that you couldn’t with any other camera. List Price: $379.
