TOP CAMERAS: SMALLEST

SMALLEST DSLR

Canon EOS Rebel SL1
Dimensions:?4.6 x 3.6 x 2.7 inches

DSLR OVER $1,000

Pentax K-5 II
Dimensions:?5.2 x 3.8 x 2.9 inches
The K-5 II packs a lot of capability—16.3-megapixel stills, Full 1080 HD video and a new AF?system rated to -3 EV—into a rugged, yet very compact body that’s also weather-resistant.

Pentax Q7 & Q10
Dimensions:?4.0 x 2.3 x 1.3 inches
Identical in size and weight, the Q7 and Q10 are also both 12.4-megapixel cameras, though the Q7 features a larger sensor.

FIXED-LENS

Nikon COOLPIX S01
Dimensions:?3.1 x 2.1 x 0.7 inches
The ultra-small S01 is about the size of a business card (a little smaller, actually) and can shoot 10-megapixel stills and 720p HD?video, saved to the built-in 7.3 GB of storage.
