7-Megapixel Compact Camera

Reasonably priced, the camera sports a 7-megapixel sensor, with full-featured capabilities, including exposure controls. The V70's zoom lens is equivalent to a 38-114mm (35mm) and a macro mode allows you to shoot as close as four inches. List Price: $399. Contact: Samsung, (800) SAMSUNG, www.samsungusa.com.
